Help with converting PNG images to GIFs

Hello, I am just starting out with drawing buildings here, and I need some help before I can provide a drawing. I use MS Paint for my 1:1 drawings and whenever I save a file as a GIF, the colors become awful and pixelated. When I save it as a PNG, it looks fine. I know that GIFs can only be saved with a limited selection of colors, but I also notice that all of your drawings seem to have a full selection despite being supposedly submitted as GIFs.
If anyone on this forum has a suggestion or tip for smoother conversion, I would appreciate the help.

It's not about what you don't have—it's the little you're given, and how far you can run with it.

you can also try paint.net. it is quite a lot easier for pixel art and it's really easy to convert bmp, png and gif there.
