I need to resize a gif image for my web page but when I do it looks terrible. The edges are jaggy and it’s burry. How can I resize them properly?

That’s a common problem with resizing gifs. You can’t simply enter in new dimensions or resize them on screen. The reason is that they have been converted from RGB color to Index color which does not support the edge smoothing known as anti-aliasing. In order to resize a gif properly you need to open it in an image editing program like Photoshop, convert it to RGB, resize it, then save it as a gif file again. This will result in a smooth image. To be honest I rarely use gifs anymore. I prefer PNG or JPG formats.

Are your images drawn or traced on the computer?

I draw my cartoons traditionally using pen and ink on paper. I then scan them into the computer and convert them to vector art in Adobe Illustrator where I spend a fair amount of time tweaking the image, removing unnecessary points and smoothing lines and finally adding color.

I’m not sure what is the best file format for me to request. What is the difference between EPS, PNG, JPG and WMF?

I have a response with images to this question on my ToonClipart.com website. Click here. Wikipedia has some good explanations as well. Just click here for more info
