Pixelating and seems too be greyscale

Ok Ive just recently made a few sigs with Gifs in them.
Samples here.
This is what it should look like.
1.
http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...m_SasSig-1.gif

It seems that when I save for Web it changes the Color and Pixels

2.
http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...Nem_SasSig.gif

What I do is open the Gif then change the Canvas size.
I then build or make the Sig in layers over the Gif.
Is it taking the pixel form from the Gif itself?
If so how can I get around this?

Here is another Sig i made aswell that has lost its color and seems pixelated too.
Looks good but detail and color dull.

Re: Pixelating and seems too be greyscale

I opened your file 'Nem_SaS-1.gif' in Photoshop Elements 7.0 (CS4 will only open one layer) and tried all Save for Web options: Perceptual, Selective, Adaptive and Restricted (Web). The first three options will create output files that look pretty close to the original, but have a considerably smaller file size (343 K). The forth option looks heavily dotted like your file 'Nem_SasSig.gif', the colors being close to the first one, though.

I wonder if the setting you are using in Save for Web is Restricted (#4)? Other than that, I do not really know too much about animated GIFs...

In CS4: save for web & ... & choose "Adaptive".
