    I am trying to make a large size (425x597px) animated gif from a high-detail photograph using adobe imageready, but no matter what settings I use, it still comes out as horribly lossy. I just want the 'optimized' result to look as good as the 'original', but for some reason even if the 'optimized' isn't optimal, I have to save it as that.

    Does anyone know a program that will allow me to achieve high-quality lossless animated gifs?

    =) Thanks.

    Gifs aren't good for photographs as they're limited to 256 colours, so whatever the software the outcome will always be lossy. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gif for a more detailed explanation.
