Is cropping animated GIFs Possible?
Seasons Greetings All!

I have an animated GIF whose edges I'd like to trim off. Some forums say you can only do this by breaking down animated GIFs to individual frames, cropping each, then recreating the single GIF. This would be a lot of work for 93 frames. Is there a better easier way to do this? Truly appreciate any assist!

Thanks!

Dee

No worries Dee, and welcome to the forums ^_^

Its not alot of work, as soon as you crop using the Crop crop tool. It will crop the rest of the layers automatically.

*Just make sure "[]current layer only" option is "OFF" / unchecked
.
along with all except for [v]highlight
[v]highlight (check this on to show what areas will be cropped)

Under the tool icons are the toolbox options.
