Why should I use this GIF compressor?

If you want to upload your animated or static GIF to a service as an avatar, create a discord emoji with less than 256 kb or upload an alternate GIF of your HTML5 ad banner to an ad network, you usually have to follow strict file size guidelines.

Unfortunately, most GIF compressors do not allow you to reduce the width and height or even the number of colors. This compressor even allows you to further reduce the quality in order to stay within the limits of the compressed file.
