    Quality loss saving an image in .gif extension

    WhyNotGif

      Hello,

       

      I've a problem with Adobe Fireworks CS5 when I save an image in .gif extension.

       

      I open a .gif image with Fireworks and if I look at properties of image (tab optimize) these are: format: gif, palette: exact, number of colors 46.

       

      Then, if I would to save this image with another name, I press CTRL + SHIFT + S , and, in the dialog windows I choose: format GIF, palette: exact and I save with the new name.

       

      When I open the new file saved with Firework and I look at the tab optimize the properties are: format: gif, palette: exact, number of colors 14, and the image is a loss quality image.

       

      I want to know why when I save in .gif format there is a loss in the number colors?

       

      Can somebody help me?

       

      Thanks!
