I am not sure if this is the right forum to post. Please feel free to transfer if neccessary. I would like to edit an gif image like to make it bigger and remain it's format. Is that possible?

You can, but generally I would not advise it. It will increase the file-size, but doesn't offer any quality improvements. What are you planning to use the image for?

Steps:
1. Download GIMPPortable from ( http://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/gimp_portable ).
2. Open the GIF image.
3. Go to "Image", "Scale Image", and choose your new image size. Press "Scale".
4. Go to "File", and then "Export As".
5. Choose "Select File Type (By Extension)", and pick "GIF image".
6. Choose "As animation", and press "Export".

Example Results:
 

Original Image

Enlarged Image

I would have used the normal GIMP software rather than the protable version, but otherwise my method would be no different.

You could also try some sharpening and blur filters and effects after enlarging which may make the image look less pixelated by rounding the edges of the pixels.

You can try it with this editor: http://www.paintshoppro.com/en/pages/gif-file/ It doesn't harm the quality or the format when you edit, or resize ;)

See the Gifsicle manpage:  http://www.lcdf.org/gifsicle/man.html

 

Even though Gifsicle itself uses a command line interface it's one of the best manipulation programs I've ever found for animated GIF files.
