I have a gif that I wish to split evenly into 8 columns and 4 rows and into 32 separate files, is it possible to do this in photoshop or should I be looking into a different application? And this is possible how would I go about doing it?
You could use the slice tool to do it, then do File > Export > Save for Web (legacy), select all the slices and set them to GIF. This works with static or animated GIFs.
