How to Make Animated .gifs under the size limit on tumblr.

So now you've made your gif using the general gif making tutorial, but you want to be able to upload it to tumblr, which has a few more requirements.

For tumblr, a gif must be under 1MB, and the size dimensions must be under 500x500 pixels. (you also may have to experiment with the width sizes of your gifs some, because some widths will freeze out a gif and it won't move, but I've found my 350 pixel x any height; 300 pixel x any height, and 245 pixel x any height gifs show up properly)

Getting a nice quality gif under 1MB takes a lot of experimenting and sometimes a little bit of luck, but here's how I generally go about it:

[mix] azula - girl anachronism


Girl Anachronism
an Azula mix.

some of them want to use you, some of them want to be used by you


Notes: I couldn't resist making an Azula mix with 'Fierce Flawless,' and 'I Witnessed a Crime' made me think of her dynamic with Zuko - their childhood and present. And then 'Eyes on Fire' was kind of a given... and so, this was born!

[mix] aang - the beginning after the end


the beginning after the end

an aang!centric mix.

all i've known is that there is an end and then you can begin again.


Notes: An Aang!centric mix spanning the entire series, from being frozen in the iceberg to the culmination of the war. 'Say When' always makes me think of Aang and Katara. And parts of 'My Oldest Memory' work perfectly for Aang's encounter right before the finale.

[mix] leckie/hoosier - skip the charades


SKIP THE CHARADES | a leckie/hoosier mix.
let's just speak plain


a/n: for uniformly, hopefully it should give you some inspiration (: and this mix started because i heard 'forever song' and desperately wanted to use it for a pairing -- and then heard 'clockwatching' soon after and leckie/hoosier was cemented in my head. ...and then i thought of 'foundations,' and that completed the concept.
