Gif frame extractor

World's simplest gif tool

This online utility lets you extract frames from a GIF animation. When you load your gif, you can view it in the browser and capture one, several, or a range of frames. The extracted frames are placed on a rectangular grid and can be downloaded as a PNG image. Created by GIF experts from team Browserling.

Gif frame extractor tool What is a gif frame extractor?
This is a browser-based program that extracts frames from animated GIFs. A GIF file contains a sequence of frames, similar to a movie. When the frames are played back quickly, they turn into an animation that looks like one continuous movement to the human eye. To extract a frame, the application pauses the GIF for a brief moment at the specified frame and draws it as a PNG image on the output area canvas. If you enter several frames to extract, for example, 1, 2, 5, or a range 4-8 (that matches frames 4, 5, 6, 7, 8), then the extractor will print all the frames side by side as a single PNG image. By default, multiple frames are laid out in a horizontal line called a sprite strip or an animation strip. You can also arrange frames in a rectangular grid or draw them in a vertical column. This can be achieved by changing the number of rows and columns of the grid in the options. To create rows of frames, leave the columns option empty. To create columns of frames, leave the rows option empty. You can also add a frame number to any of the four corners of the frame. The frame numbers make it easy to navigate the sprite grid and they correspond to the ordinal positions of the frames in the animation. The built-in GIF viewer will help you do more accurate frame extraction. With the viewer, you can see the GIF frame by frame at your preferred framerate. The framerate is set by changing the display time of frames. The frames can also be viewed and extracted in reverse order. Additionally, you can add extra space around the extracted frames via the padding option. Often, the GIFs you're working with need color adjustment, so we also added a color replacement option that you can use to replace one color or a spectrum of colors in the GIF with a new color in the extracted PNG. This option can also be used to add a background color to the extracted frames of a transparent GIF or change the existing background color. Gifabulous!

Export Jellyfish as PNG
In this example, we export one frame from a swimming jellyfish animation. The GIF consists of 31 frames, which we preview at a speed of 140 milliseconds per frame. We export only the 12th frame, which can be downloaded as a PNG file through the save-as button. (Source: Pexels.)

Extract All GIF Frames
In this example, we load a GIF of a seagull snatching food from a human's hand. The animation consists of 20 frames and we print all these frames on the same static canvas. We enter the "*" character in the frame positions, which matches all GIF frames, and activate the reverse GIF frames option. The frames are placed on a rectangular grid with 5 rows and 4 columns. To better understand where each frame is placed on the grid, we've also enabled frame numbering and printed frame positions in the lower-right corner of each frame. (Source: Pexels.)

Street Fighter Sprites
This example shows how the Street Fighter game character Ibuki was animated. Each movement is captured as a separate image and a collection of 50 frames creates the entire GIF animation. We extract frames 1, 15, 22, 26, 31, 36, 47, and put them on a horizontal sprite strip. We also fill the transparent background with solid white color and add a padding of 10px around the strip. (Source: Capcom.)
