Video/Animated GIF advanced frame editor?

I’ve found a fair few apps that create animated GIFs from a series of existing images.

Are there any apps that can take an existing animated GIF, and allow me to edit it? I specifically want to edit every frame in an existing animated GIF.

I’ve tried opening the GIF in question in Photoshop CS4 on Windows, but its animation palette only shows me one frame.

Either Mac or Windows would be good.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

A search for "edit animated gif" turns up lots of links. Have you tried one of these? – ChrisF Jul 8 '11 at 14:56
@ChrisF: I haven’t seen one that lets me edit individual frames. Have you? – Paul D. Waite Jul 8 '11 at 15:01
He understands that, but the trick is to get one that can extract the pictures within the gif, which is no easy trick. A lot about that out there. He wants a solution that is all-in-one. – KCotreau Jul 8 '11 at 15:03
I'm still amazed that there isn't a single Adobe CS product that supports this yet. It's not exactly a cutting-edge file format...! – Shinrai Jul 8 '11 at 16:23

Yes, GIMP can handle animated GIFs by bringing each frame into a separate layer.

That it can — worked really nicely for me. Cheers! – Paul D. Waite Jul 8 '11 at 15:29
