ezgif.com is one of my favorite websites when I have to do some tweaks with animated GIF. It provides different tools like GIF optimizer, GIF resizer, GIF cropper, etc. Among the list of those tools, there is a “GIF splitter” tool that is quite useful. It lets you save any frame or all frames from an animated GIF to your PC. It shows the preview of all frames available in an animated GIF. After that, you can right-click on a frame and save it as a still GIF image. If you have to save all frames, then it lets you save them as PNG images in a zip archive.
You can upload an animated GIF from PC or add URL of an online animated GIF to split its frames. The maximum size of an animated GIF should not be greater than 25 MB. I think this limit is satisfactory for most of the cases.
