Hello,

I need your expertise.

I am trying to create a gif, I have followedAdobe's tutorial, but I am stumped at Step 3.

While I am supposed to click on the "make frames from layers", I cannot find this option on my menu of PS CC.

I get this instead :

What to do so I can proceed?

Thank you very much

Yeah, you see where it says "Create Frame Animation" - click that.

I managed to figure out your issue. (I think!)

Click on the timeline > then select > delete timeline > then when you see the below, hit the arrow and press "create frame animation"

Hope that helps.

Your menu is the menu for "Video Timeline" instead of "Frame Animation" which is why I suggested deleting the timeline.

If you have followed the steps above, it could be a bug. I would suggest first restarting Photoshop.

If that still does not work, if you share your Photoshop and OS version, one of the Adobe techies may be able to help

Also, just to make sure. When you select "Frame Animation" from the drop down... Have you pressed the actual "Create Frame Animation" button to the left of the triangle as highlighted in Ged's screenshot?

Thank you guys for taking the time to get me out of this pickle.

Here is the full screenshot. All seem normal but for the menu.

My Photoshop version is up to date, so I don't understand.

I thought clicking meant selecting it in that instance. But definitely my mistake

It's almost two years later to the day... and you've just helped me, too! Didn't know I had to "click" the menu option! So, thanks again!
