Blurry and non readable PDF when .gif converted to PDF

Hi everyone,

I tried to convert a .gif image to PDF. The code works for some images fine but for this specific image, it blurs the output PDF and the text is un readable. I’m attaching the input image and Output PDF files.
My Aspose.Imaging version is 21.7.0 which is the latest.
I’m using the following code to convert .gif to .pdf.
// Load GIF image
Aspose.Imaging.Image image = Aspose.Imaging.Image.Load(“C:\Temp\Referral Elsa A_LI.gif”);

        // Set PDF options
        Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.PdfOptions options = new PdfOptions();

        // Save GIF as PDF file
        image.Save("C:\\Temp\\Referral Elsa A_LI.gif.pdf", options);

Am I missing something here? Any help is highly appreciated. Referral Elsa A_LI.gif.pdf (300.3 KB)
Referral Elsa A_LI.gif (74.0 KB)
