Photoshop: How do I open an animated GIF in CS3 or CS4?

Hi, I use Adobe photoshop cs4 extended and I was disappointed to learn that you cannot open a GIF picture like the earlier version so you can modify or anything. Please make it work

    Photoshop, prior to CS5, never had the ability to open animated GIFs natively. That said, you can open animated GIFs in CS3 and CS4 if you do the following:

    1. Go to File>Import>Video Frames to Layers
    2. In the File Name search box type “*” (The dialog will now show all the files as being selectable)
    3. Select your GIF file and click the [Load] button

    In CS5, you can simply choose File>Open... and select your GIF file.
