What you will need:
- A portion of a video you want to turn into a gif
before you start make sure your video clip is cut so that you're only importing what you want to be a gif, this makes things a lot easier and understandable
Step 1: Import Your Clip
Go to File and then import. Click on Video Frames to Layers. Select your video and click on Load. Make sure that it is a video that can play in Photoshop. The formats supported are .MOV, .AVI, .MPG, .MPEG, and .MP4. Make sure you hit From beginning to end if you want the full clip into a gif. If not then shorten it before doing this.
