Dithering for GIFs

Hello everyone! I have been trying for a while to figure out how to fix the quality issue that arises with indexing and GIFs, but I can't seem to find anything. I know that when something is saved as a GIF the quality will always be reduced due to the colors being reduced to 256. I have noticed that everyone (who has ps of course) uses dithering to rectify the quality issue. I have scoured the internets, downloaded various scripts/plugins, and I can't seem to find anything that will apply dithering to all layers in a GIF. Ximagic only works on individual pictures and it is just too time consuming to go about editing 20-40 layers in that manner. So! This is my last ditch effort.

Does anyone know of a way (scripts/plugins/something else I've may have overlooked)to apply dithering to multiple layers in a GIF/animation at once?


When you convert your image from RGB to indexed, the dithering (if you asked for one) is applied on all layers...

You need to Index the image first:

Then you can export to a .gif with dithering.

I hope your gifs will now look beautifully smooth :D
