Gif timing question

Hi all!

I'm hoping someone could give me some tips on how to make animated gifs for Tumblr. I understand the basics but timing is getting me down.

I know there's a way to save multiple gifs in one canvas so the first bit finishes before the second, but the file size ends up being way too large or there's too much loss of quality for my liking.

Is there a good way to manually time separate gifs to align properly? I'm using Photoshop CS3.

hello! i've recently started using Photoshop Elements 13, before that i used Photoshop Elements 6.

i save my icons under .png and i've never broken livejournal's 40kb limit, but since switching programs i now do. when i do a typical save of [file → save as → format: png] my icons will be over 40kb, however if i do [save for web → png-24 & interlaced] they save under 40kb. as far as i know quality isn't lost when i do this and the icons look the exact same. is there a reason for this?

I'm sorry if this is a newbie question, but I can't figure out how with using paint why all pictures I save at 100 x 100.. like lj requires.. seem so small compared to other icons, besides one I found on a google search I think is a nice size, the above icon seems small.. can anyone help? I did try to look at some beginner tutorials but they didn't seem to address this issue.. thanks in advance ! Also, has anyone retrieved viruses from saving others lj pics?

Looking for a tutorial

Program: Photoshop

I recently saw a tutorial that used a picture from Once Upon a Time, Regina to be specific and there was someone behind her (I don't watch the show so I'm only vaguely familiar with the characters). The tutorial taught how to remove an unwanted object/person in the background using (I think) the lasso tool and something that might have been called Content Aware. I thought I had saved it but apparently I hadn't. The tutorial used the full image (It wasn't icon sized at that point though the maker might have resized it later). The coloring had blues and purples in it.

I hope that helps. I really need that tutorial too.

Trouble with KM Player

I had to use a new version of KM Player and now I have trouble making screencaps.
I use the same settings as I always do, but now the screencap size is really huge. Normally they are between 100-150 kb per screencap, and now they are between 500kb-1MB. That's way too big to upload to my screencap community.
Anyone knows how to fix that?
