GIF making has become an integral part of Internet culture. In the past few years, the so called High Quality GIF has taken the format to new heights via offering .h264 or webm versions for low-bandwidth consumption.GIF genres have also exploded in this time. There are reaction GIFs, "dubbed" GIFs (dialog replaced with often humorous text), and many, many more. Many of these genres push the limits of GIF into new directions.Unfortunately Photoshop has not grown to meet the needs of these content creators. The 500 frame limit has spawned a few tutorials using Frame Animations to copy and paste frames between documents that are awkward, kuldgey, and prove that PS itself can go well beyond the arbitrary limitation.I implore you to please remove the limit or allow an experienced user to disable it.

Yes Please! Because people have been translating After Effects footage into gifs to be brought into Adobe Captivate. The only way to do this is by using Photoshop as an intermediary. Please see this thread: https://elearning.adobe.com/2018/05/painless-animated-gifs-captivate/

While going beyond 500 frames is not recommended, there are cases where it is needed.

I recently moved from using the free software, Gimp, to Photoshop and this limitation seems very much a negative.

I feel it should be allowed to go far beyond 500 frames, but always provide a warning pop-up that a user must interact with to confirm importing so many.
