Request... couple a question about mini-movies

Hey everyone! So I just learned how to make mini-movi animations and I can make this: to where it is under 39.1KB to post on threads.
And I am wondering
1. How can I get it on a cool background like this: or something, and
2. keep it under the 39.1KB rule?

And I also have one more question...
When making mini-movies in photoshop/imageready, and you jump to photoshop to adjust the coloring,etc... is there a way to sharpen the animation besides having to click each thumbnail and sharpen individually?
I use Photoshop, Imageready, & ImageGrab, as well as PSP7 and Animation Shop. I've tried searching and stuff but I'm not seeing any that says about the size rule...
Thanks so much in advance!

I'm going to teach you to get the coloring above using the GIMP. This tutorial is translatable to most other programs and involves only color balance layers, brightness/contrast layers, channel mixer layers, and color fill layers.
