I reeeeeally, really wanna make some icons for LJ, but every time I make one it's too big no matter how much I fiddle with the optimization settings. Yours all look so awesome! How do you make them? It is all in how many frames/effects the animation has? I'd assume that'd make the file bigger... Every time I try to make the file smaller, naturally, the picture/colors get all distorted.
Could you post a little animation studio tutorial or something 'cause I'm never gonna get the hang of this! :(
