I know we're mid-way through the year but still, there's no time like the present to commit to a new goal!


Anyone with any experience making GIF files?
Im making them from video using FFMPEG but the quality is bad and the size is still too big - about 1Mb for 3 seconds
Resolution is alread small 360x640
I know that using a palette form the input file will increase the quality but really I'm concerned about the size

I want to use them in a blog post but I can't put 10 1Mb gif on the same page.

Any Help or suggestions welcome!!

Quick fix for missing lens profiles in :linux:
copy the lens you are missing from the relevant xml file in:
And paste it into your file at /usr/share/lensfun/

Copying the whole file didn't work for me (different version)
Neither did lensfun-update-data

If anyone knows a better way would love to hear it and have all lenses up-to-date.
