GIF file writing is not supported in GD and can not  be resized by Imagemagick. Future gif support relies on the protections running out and the support in PHP/GD/IM..

ok here a hacky way to do it you wouldn't want to do this for a bunch of pics but this might work
first make a jpg image the same size and name as your gif but name.jpg upload through script. resize your gif's by hand to the same size of your script resize jpg saving to normal_*.gif and thumb_ *.gif. ftp your resized gif's to the same directory you uploaded jpg of same name. go into phpmyadmin edit the info in cpg_pictures to have the file extension and filesize of your gifs.

Imagemagick supports resizing GIFs!  I upload them all the time and have no problems creating thumbs and intermediate images.  The only thing is that ImageMagick binary distributions do not include support for the LZW algorithm so GIF files are written uncompressed, so it's recommended to convert images to PNG or JPEG.  If you don't have Imagemagick installed, ask your host to install it for you - most will do so upon request.
