Let's face it, there is no way all these people submitting animated GIFs will turn them into sprite sheets. So use these utilities if you need to do that:

And for people too lazy to copy and paste frames to make a sprite strip, i recommand this tool that does it automatically and works very well (even with transparent png).

Since these are Windows tools, I added a tutorial for Mac and Linux people, using ImageMagick:

There is a way.
At least I did it using Anatomy software and a first frame of animated .gif.
I did cut movable parts of that frame and load them into the Anatomy sprite tool. After that you can create your own sprite animation using textures of the .gif animation.
The bone-like system of the software really simlifies the work.
It takes appr 1 hour for me to animate walk and attack animations for any 2d static picture.

In my case just copying .gif to spritesheet was not enought because for any game you would need more than one action of your character. So I did find solution using this bone-oriented software.

Anatomy software: http://spritetools.com/index.php/software

Good luck.
