Just open the file with Photoshop. Photosohop will open most graphic formats including JPEG, GIF, PSD, TIFF, EPS, BMP, etc etc etc etc...Its a long list. Once youve opened the file with Photoshop, edit away.

With photoshop already open select File>Open then browse to your file.

If the file is a .gif or other 8 bit format you may wish to select Image>Mode>RGB colour to enable all of photoshops filters and effects.

Rejecting ruale's answer as it duplicates the comment made by weed.  ruale, you should consider using comments only when there is expert commentary present as is the etiquette in this topic area.  Restating someone else's comments as your answer is not done here as you can see.  Please see the guidelines for questions and answers at this link:

in defense of ruale's reply, which DID add information not included in weed's reply:

if a gif is indexed (has been saved "for the web" in photoshop) then once you've opened it in photoshop, you DO need to go to image/mode and select rgb in order to convert it back to an editable 256 color rgb mode.

Any Gif or the Jpg can be OPened with Pshop. And Edited. But IF the Gif is of Index color Format u cant add many effects to it. So u have to Go to

Image - Mode - Rgb instead of Indexed color. Now the Gif is ready to alter and make changes .Later u can flatten the image and save it to what ever format u prefer.
I think thisis what u are looking for? isnt it?
