Tumblr have made it so that any gif wider than 150 pixels automatically stretches to accommodate the width of the dashboard.  I’m not sure I like it.  A tiny gif blown up to 500 pixels wide isn’t necessarily going to look good.  Exaggeratedly shitty gif provided above to demonstrate.  It is 151 pixels wide.  You can expect more of this as people take advantage of being able to fit more and more into a 1MB gif that is apparently as wide as the Tumblr dashboard.
Also, I don’t get why this is only happening to gifs and not jpgs or pngs…
