My bad bro, I wasn't even thinking of that.

No big deal, it's just that many of them are made from cheap software or programs you download off the internet, so the files themselves aren't properly optimized for web use. Making them much, much larger in file size than they need to be. A properly optimized web image can be up to 75% smaller with little noticeable loss in quality.

If everyone used Photoshop's "save for web" feature, this wouldn't even be a problem; but maybe I'm just a Photoshop-snob.

I'm hardly a photoshop expert, but even I know that much when it comes to file optimization. Whenever I have made GIFs I always use Photoshop or ULead, but I have been seeing a lot of people actually use websites that can snag clips from youtube videos now.

I actually remember you saying something about GIFs in the past, and how we shouldn't use so many in one post, or requote the same one over and over. I think it was on the old forum that you said it, but I just wasn't even thinking when I posted all those.

Garunteed America would go crazy if you won the World Cup!

Winning stuff always makes people care!!!!!

However you are right, it does mean more to us.

Glad my name isnt Robert Green right now

I thought when all the flags dissapeared for one moment maybe we lost...but I think going to a draw was worse...and in the newspapers today there are such headlines as

"We Was Rob-ed" and "God Save Our Green"

Final Score: England 1 - 1 USA
