Where to find Animated GIFs for Lotus Notes that meet the file size requirements

Something fun my co-workers do is send fun animated gifs in chat (sametime) /email (lotus notes). But not only can I not find where they are finding all these funny gifs, but I also seem to only find huge ones that are too large to post.
Where can I find all these awesome gifs? How do I change the file size? Is there some sort of freeware I can download to be able to resize or change the file size?

I have attached the error I receive when I try to send a gif I found.

just go to images.google.com and search for gif (or animated gif)
on the left hand navigation you can specify the size of the images

you can also just do a normal google for animated gif or animation

thats all ive been doing. the gifs are too large in addition there is a VERY limited selection of gifs. the question is where can i find them and how can i resize them. Google images although is a place to find them, is not at all effective. Search terms need to be very specific to pull anything valuable up.

try this:
http://www.messengerfreak.com/emoticons.php

i searched for MSN animated icons.. (they are basically the same) and sure enough you have to go and tweak your search terms.. but this you can figure out yourself.. just try different stuff…

you can always use -searchterm to NOT find that.. when you see many sites you are not interested you would search for: +wanted -notwanted or -site:www.notwanted.com

Also you can save emoticons that your chat partners send to you.
