I use PIL to thumbnail or resizegif. 
the original gif file :838*462.  38.75KB
resize to  600*345, after save as new file.
The new file is 86KB.
Why is the small gif Larger then original gif file.

>>> import Image
>>> im = Image.open('e:/1.gif')
>>> b=im.resize((600, 345,))
>>> b.show()
>>> b.save('e:/13.gif', 'GIF',)
