It's actually quite easy you simply have to copy the whole image and then paste it into a new layer!

Steps:

1. Choose "rectangular marquee tool" and select the whole image.
2. Click on Edit tab and then on copy or cut.
3. Click on File tab and then on New don't change anything simply press OK
4. Go back to Edit tab and click on Paste.

Good luck.

Hi! I recommend using Photoshop hot keys for speed (<Ctrl+C>, <Ctrl+V> and etc.).

When you make a new web-page or replace an old one, use creatively helpful graphics to catch the eye of your guests. One of the best ways to do this is to use animated GIFs. While you can use Photoshop to make your own GIFs, there are many offered for free online that you can also use. But it may be that you find a GIF that you would enjoy to use, other than that you would like to modify it in some way, such as making it smaller, making it loop or having the name of your organization displayed in front of it as it plays.

If the original was a GIF then you should open that in Photoshop. Saving as a JPG will reduce the quality of the text and besides, if the JPG can't be opened by Photoshop then it is either corrupted or in a newer JPG format than your version of Photoshop supports.

If you want to have all of the frames broken up into layers, click the options in the animation window, and select Flatten Frames into Layers. This will give you access to all the frames as layers and you can now edit the GIF as though it was a movie.

Seems like you've been using Photoshop for a long time now. Will definitely try this out. Smile

What you need to have:

Photoshop CS3.
QuickTime installed. The method will not work without it.
Head & hands. Nothing at all works without them.

1. Import an existing GIF-image

In the main menu, click File → Import → Video Frames To Layers... Dialog box Load pops up. There is a single type QuickTime Movie in the Files of Type list, including several video formats; GIF not as a class. Type "*.*" or even "*.gif" (without the quotes, of course) in File name input box and click Load button. Now GIF files appear in the list. Select the needed one and click Load again. In the Import Video To Layers dialog box make sure that the option From Beginning To End is selected, and the checkbox Make Frame Animation is checked.

Now open Animation and Layers windows through the Window item of the main menu, if they are not already open. If there are tabs others than Animation (Frames) in the Animation window - make sure you are on this tab. As you might guess, each frame in the animation window corresponds to a layer in the layers window. Clicking on a frame activates the corresponding layer.

2. Changing the animation speed

If you want to change the speed of the whole animation, click on the first frame in the animation window, press and hold Shift, and then click on the last frame to select the entire frame sequence. Click the "down arrow" icon on the bottom of each frame in the animation window and choose a speed. Keep in mind that the animation speed specified in Photoshop does not exactly correspond to the actual speed of the animation in your browser. Actual speed varies from browser to browser. For example, as noted by the people, animation in FireFox is faster than in IE.

3. Resizing and cropping

Everything is standard here. Open Image → Image Size... item of the main menu and edit the size as you do for regular static image. Crop animated picture through Image → Crop or by using Crop Tool in the toolbar. The changes apply to all frames in the animation, as they practically are the layers of your document.

4. Deleting frames

You can selectively remove frames to reduce the resulting file size and speed up animation loading. As usual, by pressing and holding Ctrl or Shift you can select a separate frames or their sequence in the animation window, and then drag to the bin at the bottom of this window. Do it carefully though not to break your cartoon. After removal of the frames you can also edit the animation speed.

Gif is a blocked file which means you can't edit it directly!

But if you pick a select tool -> select the whole image then copy o cut it then go to file tag -> new don't change anything just click create once a new project is created simply click paste!

Now you will be able to edit non editable image file!
