    Newby GIF file size question - HELP!!

    mu2pilot

      Ok, I have a PNG file with a small graphic.  My web designer sent the PNG file to me (see attached).  When my designer converts it to a GIF image, his file sizes are very small, 500-750 bytes.  When I save it as a GIF, my file size is much, much larger, like 14k (also attached).  Why is that?  I have set the # of colors to 16 on my GIF and the file size that Fireworks shows in the "image preview" box that appears when you click on "Options" in the "Save As" dialog shows the expected size to be 497 bytes.  But when I check the file in the windows directory, it is around 14k.  Please help!!!
