I have another gif program that lets me choose how many frames I want to work with from the video, color quality wise obviously Photoshop is better so I want to use photoshop, but it doesn't seem to let me control how many frames I can split it up into so it's really slow. I'd normally have 24, but PS is giving me like 86... How can I change it?
I have no idea what you are talking about. Your description is at best vague and confusing since you do not explain what steps you actualyl use or what video you work with.
......... I don't see the importance of what video I'm working with since the amount of frames is the problem.... or the steps... considering if you know how to import a video to create a gif in PS you wouldn't need to know... but anyways...
Import video frames to layers..
Choose a video I've already clipped in imovie
Range to Import is "From Beginning to End" and Make animation is checked
and then it just makes like 80+ frames
