How to compress GIF files

Enjoy a sleek GIF editor that makes compressing GIFs easy. Compress your own GIF within seconds without installing software locally—for free and without intrusive ads. Click on "Compress GIF" to get redirected to the editing interface. There, import your GIF image from the computer using the button in the upper-right corner. Once you upload your file, the online GIF optimizer is automatically ready to compress the GIF format.

The problem with many GIF editors is losing quality. Why use a GIF image that is blurry and pixelated when you can access a tool that can compress GIFs and maintain quality? Simply select the desired compression rate from the GIF compressor interface. The smaller file size is immediately visible, and you can compare the result with the original. You can always reset, go one step back from the Edits History, or compress the GIF image further to achieve the desired GIF file size.

3. Download your compressed GIF file for free.

Forget complicated interfaces. The compressed GIF is saved automatically, ready for you to click the “Download” button. Export the cut GIF to your computer and use it in your next marketing campaign and get more engagement from your target audience. Whenever you need to compress other animated images, see step 1.
