The "Paste Frames" command exists, but is grayed out and unusable. This is the problem I am having. I don't want to duplicate frames within an animation; I want to take frames from a GIF and add them to a JPG. According to this tutorial, I should be able to do this:

The instruction begins somewhere around 4:30-5:00.

Hey! I figured out a solution to this if you weren't able to figure this out / people found this through google like I did haha.

 

What fixed it for me was checking if the color modes were the same between the gif and the still image you're trying to paste onto. One was CMYK for me and the other was RGB, switching the still image to RGB like the gif made the option to paste frames no longer grayed out.

Changing the color mode through
Image > Mode > ( select whatever color option)

Hopefully this helps 🙂
