Windows 7: Resizing a gif file

Resizing a gif file

Hi all,

I am trying to resize a .gif file to use as an avatar. I use Faststone Image Viewer. After the resize FIV saves the the file as a still photo in .gif format.

Any ideas how I can retain the animation? Or any other programs I can try to accomplish this?

Thanks for the help,
