Background color on GIF
On this one particular gif I'm trying to change the background to b1b1b1 for icon use. Somehow whenever I choose that color and use the bucket tool to fill in the background I instead have the background become doe8a0 (the things that look like o's are zeros). I have no clue why it gives me such a different color.

Here's the gif I'm trying to change the background to b1b1b1.

RE: Background color on GIF
Because it's a GIF, and GIF have a limited set of colors. Using "Colors/Map/Rearrange color map", you can check that this image has 10 colors (numbered 0-9). To add one color, convert to RGB (Image/Mode/RGB) then add your background, and go back to "Image/Mode/Indexed" and tell it to use 11 colors. This should allocate a new color for your background and re-use the existing colors.
