How To Make A GIF

Ok so let’s talk about how to make a “GIF” (which stands for Graphics Interchange Format.)

(pronounced, JIFF (soft J/G) or GIFF (hard g)… say it however you want, just don’t fight over it like these guys.

Basically a “GIF” is an animated image (that moves)…

And there are many many different ways to create GIFS.

So in this article we’ll just share a few of the main ways we go about easily making GIFS.


One of the quickest ways to make a gif is by stringing together 2 or more images and then showing a slideshow of them.

Our favorite tool for this is a site called GIFMaker.Me.

When you get to gifmaker.me you’ll see options to “upload images” or “video to gif”.


For the upload images button, just click and upload some images…

Once you’ve uploaded the images you’ll see that you have options to change the size of your gif, the scrolling animation speed, and whether or not the animation loops or repeats infinitely.

You can even add music to your gif if you want.
