It's been a month since this has been posted, but I remember using a free program called Unfreeze to make animated .gif files (or was it unfreez ?). I don't know if it still exists, google it if you're interested.

It depends on what your doing with the sprite.

Step one: Find the ripped sprite sheet for the character you wish to create a sprite for. crimson-penguion.net has sprite sheets

Step two: use gimp or photoshop, to remove each specific frame from the sheet and save them as a number (i.e. first frame is 1.png second is 2.png etc.)

Step three: using a program like animation shop, follow the instructions given by the program to lay out the frames in the order that they should be in so that when they play, it moves all awesome like and stuff.

Photoshop then Imageready or what Cim already suggested; Sprite Sheets.

I usually make my own, but I have done that in a long time and I made some pretty fun emoticons that I believe should be here!!
