    Unfortunately no, the GIF format doesn’t support partial (alpha-channel) transparency, meaning any pixel can only be fully tansparent or fully opaque, so it’s not possible to make partially transparent GIFs and achieve anti-aliasing effect against different backgrounds. The GIF and PNG formats also both support transparency. If you need any level of transparency in your image, you must use either a GIF or a PNG. GIF images (and also PNG) support 1-color transparency. This basically means that you can save your image with a transparent background.

    If the Gif has 234 Frames and if you Open it in Adobe Photoshop, You’ll get 234 Frames on a Frame Animation Timeline. And you will get 234 Frames/ Layers in the Layers Panel. If you want a Tranparent Background on this Gif ( Which has become now a Photoshop Document), You will have to Delete this Background 234 times, Frame after Frame after Frame. If you choose to do this, it will be the beginning of a Profound Understanding of the Photoshop Timeline.

    This will result not in a Hi QUALity Gif. but in a MP4 file..which can be quickly turned into a Gif.
