Changing the speed of a gif is probably one of the easiest steps to creating animations in Photoshop. All you have to do is select the frame and choose a speed. 

Whether you want to speed up or slow down the gif, the method is the same, the difference is the number you choose, which represents the speed. 

Before moving on to the detailed steps, keep in mind that if you want to edit an animated gif in Photoshop, you will need the original .psd file. If you try to open an existing .gif file, you will find that you can only see one frame of the animation. 

Once you have the gif in  .psd format, let’s get started.

Step 1: Open the PSD file and open the Animation (Timeline) panel in the top menu Window > Timeline

Note: All screenshots are from Adobe Photoshop CC 2021 Mac version. Windows or other versions may be different.

Le panneau Chronologie ressemble à ceci. Comme vous pouvez le voir, j’ai sept images et sa vitesse est de 0 sec.

Voici à quoi ressemble le gif en ce moment. Dans les prochaines étapes, je vais vous montrer comment accélérer et ralentir ce gif.

Étape 2 – Si vous cliquez sur la case 0 seconde sous chaque image, vous verrez d’autres valeurs numériques, choisissez le nombre pour accélérer ou ralentir votre image. Plus le nombre est élevé, plus la vitesse est faible.

Sin demora (0 segundos) es la velocidad más rápida. Si desea ralentizar el gif, puede elegir cualquier valor que no sea Sin demora. Por ejemplo, elegí 0.2 y así es como se ve, un poco más lento que antes.

Nota: tendrás que hacer clic manualmente y seleccionar en cada cuadro para cambiar el valor (velocidad).

Making a gif is all about adding motion to the layers and speed does the motion. You can create a fun gif by manipulating the speed in two quick steps! If you want to learn more about creating animations in Photoshop, check out another fun tutorial for creating gifs that I created.

    Thank you very much, I really needed it 😉

    But then is there a way to change the time on all images in the same way? I have one which is at 0.03 but I want to change them all but there are 150 frames in total!

    You can select all images so they are highlighted, click on one of the arrows and change the timing – this will change the timing on all images.

    What about the frame rate? I set the delay to 0 but it’s still too slow. I know you go to the animation panel and then document something, but I can’t find any of that. I have an open timeline

      What version of Photoshop are you using? In CS5 you can click on the triangle at the top right of the animation panel, this will then bring up a menu where you can change the document settings. Which allows you to change the frame rate. This option does not seem to be available in CS6. If anyone knows how to change frame rate in CS6, please post an answer.

    Is it possible to make 2 elements move at different speeds on the same layer?

      Hi Peter,

      I’m afraid that’s not possible because the gif is made up of individual layers. If both objects are on the same layer, when you animate, the same effects apply to everything on the same layer.
