Does anyone know a lot about optimising .gifs? I've added a header to my journal. It's a .gif, showing polaroid style pictures of pretty, pretty people.

Currently, there are six different pictures, and only 8 frames in the animation. I'd like to be able to add a lot more (because there are so many other pretty people to display!), but I'm not particularly impressed with the quality. In a couple of pictures (especially in the background of the David Hewlett picture and the one with the Supernatural boys) the restricted colour palette is obvious.

I created it with Adobe ImageReady, with 256 colours, which seems to be the maximum available. Am I dreaming to hope that there's a way to keep the image in .gif format, but also keep quality? Or should I make it black and white so that there are fewer colours to display? Any suggestions are appreciated! :)

I've added a colour version and a black and white version behind the cut )
