Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Check out the TGifImage component from
Its a good component for manipulating Gif files.

Use the following function to extract a frame:

    function GetFrameInfo(const FrameIndex: Integer): TFrameInfo

TFrameInfo = Record
      iiImage           : TBitmap;
      iiLeft            : Integer;  {relative to whole image}
      iiTop             : Integer;  {relative to whole image}
      iiWidth           : Integer;
      iiHeight          : Integer;

Iterate thru each frame and save the frame to a file using the iiImage field.

I finally get this sorted out using ImageEN component and some tutorials that I found in the internet (TGifImage freeware).
