Opening A .GIF File in Photoshop

A Tutorial for GameBanana

Ever have an issue with opening a .gif in Photoshop CS3? This will fix that issue!

Ever try and open a .gif in Photoshop CS3 and get this following box pop up?
Well, I'll tell you how to get around that error so you can open your animated .gif file for editing the frames. Go to Start > Import > Video Frames To Layers
Then the file browser will pop up. Navigate to the folder with the selected .gif you want to open and type it's name into the box. Click open, once you do that this following window will open.
Click OK, and then you are done. Your .gif is now editable. If you don't see the animation window at the bottom click window > animation. Viola. You are done. Have fun editing those .gif files!

    Posted by OwnT- What I don't understand is WHY Adobe hid this so well, and why they didn't even say they supported .GIF for this function.. This is madness.
    Madness? This is PHOTOSHOPPAAA!!! :P

    Posted by SGT_kick_ur_ass This doesn't work for me, the only file formats that I can open are .MOV, .AVI, .MPEG and .MPG, no GIF.
    You have to type the actual GIFs name in the box then hit enter/open. That worked for me.

    You gotta type in the file name. If I wanted to open the cliffdive.gif on my desktop I would go to my desktop with the file browser and type in cliffdive.gif then press open. That was covered in the tutorial.
