Hey Matej,

Medium loves gifs — I really love gifs. They are magical little files that make the internet a better place.

I know what it’s like to twiddle and tweak every possible setting in Photoshop to get that optimal gif size. It’s pretty lame when all of your hard work ends up spitting out a huge gif on our end.

Gifs as a file format leave a lot to be desired. That doesn’t excuse us for the issues you pointed out above. We hear you and are working on improvements to our gif hosting and compression.
