    Thanks guys. :D You're great. I appreciate all of the help. I'm marking this solved, but I still have one question...Why did the hat turn colors before?

    Not really sure ... Anyone ??
    The problem was not the Hat file ... It was the Elephant gif.
    It would only change color (actually lose color) ... when optimized.
    The colors lost were non existant in the Elephant gif so you couldn't see it change.

    I passed all the Images and frames to bmp images ... the reassembled the gif in photoshop.
    Sure would like to know what I did ... and if there was an easier fix.

    I think I figured it out.
    gifs automatically change color after you look at them ... and some colors will dissapear.
    for example.... focus you eyes on the + in the center of this gif ...

    ROFLMAO Oh you're too funny :D

    I think you were right that it was the elephant causing the problem. I had tried to change the hue of the elephant to green when I first started this project, and when I saved it, the whole image turned gray. Ooops...guess I should have mentioned that before :eek: I had completely forgotten that.

    Again, I thank everyone for fixing it. I know a lot of work actually went in to getting a workable image. Once again the members of TSG have come to the rescue :D

    Here I went to all this trouble - and you're laughing at me. :(
    As I illustrated, the fix is so simple ... Don't look at it.

    I originally tried to save as a layered tiff .. thanks to Peril0us for the conversion hint.
    But I couldn't figure out how to recover the tiff (with layers) in PS (intact) or Irfanview.
    So I went the difficult (frame by frame) bmp route ... don't know if tiff would have worked.
    Anyone ???
