How to Edit GIF Images After Creating It on Computer

-- Thursday, November 17, 2016
I got an animated GIF that I need to edit but I can't find software to do it. I've tried a few shareware apps, but they don't seem to edit existing animated GIFs, they just create new ones. Or am I missing something? Any recommendations for freeware or app that I can use to edit an animated GIF? Thanks.
