I have this image

enter image description here

But I need to edit part of it, the problem is that photoshop is not importing half of the frames.

I mean, when I import the image into the animation bar, it show only the first 4 seconds of animation, the part when "FAST MIGRATION" text appear is not showing at all, instead I keep seeing a snapshot of the last frame before that one, until the whole animation resets. Here's an example:

Here's what happening:


Any idea how to solve this?? It's pretty weird, I can't realize what's going on

Not sure what the issue is. Opening your top GIF with Photoshop CC2014 suffers from the same stop half way through.

However, I was able to access all frames by:

  • Opening your top gif with Fireworks CS6
  • Export as animated GIF
  • Open that new animated GIF with Photoshop CC2014

Then, and only then, were all frames present in Photoshop.

Here's the gif after export from Fireworks:

  • Since I don't have Fireworks installed, can you please share with me the image you've exported from that software? Maybe this "first image" is somehow "corrupted" or something like that :S

  • You might not need Fireworks. I'd try any app, other than Photoshop, that can open and save an animated GIF.
