    Default Resizing Gif Files

    Does anyone know of an app that can resize GIF files? Whenever I attach a GIF to a text, my phone converts to just an image, I'm assuming because the file is too large.

    I checked the Play store but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks

    Hello.

    Does the other person still receive the gif? Usually when you attach it, you only see it through a simple picture viewer. This is why it seems to be a still picture. It doesn't convert it or anything like that.

    I've never seen an app that resizes one.. as a matter of fact you'd have to do it through a program like Photoshop with a plugin and it takes some time (unless there is some new plugin I'm not aware of - it's been a while since I had to do it manually). There are websites out there that allow you to upload a give and get it resized. Just Google "resize a gif" and you'll see plenty sites offering an free automated service.

    Nope, the other person also receives just a still image.

    I think I got it now though...I installed Textra, and changed the MMS size limit to "No Limit", and so far it seems to be working fine. I just wish the stock messaging app had that option.

    Thanks for the response!
