How To Extract Frames From GIF Animation Image

How many times do we come across some awesome gif animation and wish that we could extract some frames? GIF Frame Extractor(direct download link here) is a free tool for Windows that lets you extract frames from any animated GIF and save them to JPG or PNG image formats instantly. You can use the extracted frame image as your profile picture or just share them with your friends and co-workers.

Run the tool, click Open and select the GIF animation whose frames you want to extract. You will see the number of frames on the left sidebar.

Select any frame that you want to extract and click Save. You can choose whether to save them in JPG or PNG format.

In the screenshot below, you will find multiple frames extracted from my favorite Awesome Human Skating GIF animation.

The only drawback is that you cannot batch extract all frames with a single click, you will have to manually select every frame from the left sidebar and save them manually.  Otherwise it’s a great tool for quickly extracting your favorite frames from GIF animation. Enjoy!

  1. Does this program has a mac version, considering mac doesn’t have a nice support of `convert’ operation in Linux

    • I have used Animation Shop 3 from Jasc Software. It opens the animated GIF and it displays the length of each frame. Some GIFs cannot be opened for some reason probably because of copyrights.

  2. Actually you CAN batch extract all the frames in an animated GIF by clicking on SAVE ALL; then providing a name for an OUTPUT FOLDER (this can also be an existing folder); providing an OUTPUT NAME (all the frames will have this name); entering a PERCENT SIGN (%) in the output name where you want the frame number to be (most likely at the end of the name); and, lastly, selecting an OUTPUT FORMAT (PNG or JPG) for the files. Pressing OK will generate named and numbered files for each frame (beginning with 0).
