    How can one create a GIF with more than 256 colors?

    GIF files incorporate a compression scheme to keep file sizes at a minimum, and they are limited to 8-bit (256 or fewer colors) color palettes.

    You cannot create a GIF file with more than 256 colors, due to the file type. GIF is designed to be a very small file size, and is an older format.

    Yup... just as impossible as trying to find a five-sided square.
