Popims Animator: The Right Tool for the Job?

GIFs are good, but huge

The animated .gif I exported was excellent, but a full megabyte in size (which is rather large for a 360x300 .gif file, animated or not). Controls for saving your .gif are so limited as to being (as you can see) non-existent. There is no settings window between "Save as Animated GIF" and the window shown above.
