How to Make An Animated GIF from Video in Seconds

Ever been confused on how to make an animated GIF? Or do you not have Photoshop? Don't worry… imgflip makes animated GIFs from your videos in a snap! So if you have a favorite clip from a movie, or would like to strut your stuff, or in my case have a moment you would like to last forever… like my 4-month-old son punching a balloon and laughing.

I won't get into the endless possibilities you can create animated GIFs with, so we'll just cut to the chase.

Step 1: Go to https://imgflip.com/gif-makeranimated gif generator app

Step 2: Upload your video

Step 3: Select your settings

Some features like removing the watermark and getting a larger GIF (unlimited dimensions) require you to upgrade to the Pro Version which costs about $9.95 a month. So if you're an avid GIF maker, it's probably worth the investment. Though you can get Photoshop Creative Cloud for $19/month and it has full features. That said… the free version is quite fun!

Step 4: Generate your GIF & Download it!

Here's what I ended up with.. it's not the BEST… but not bad for a test:

And that's it!

    I find photoshop to be a lot easier! And you don’t have that terrible watermark 🙁
    I’ve been using gifs in my blog posts since my website’s relaunch — they’re addicting!

    thank you for sharing your trick, before I used to do with a series of images, definitely those were not as attractive as yours.

    I haven’t used GIF images on my posts, because I had read somewhere that Google doesn’t like them. However, I’ve seen them on many posts lately, so I might want to give a try. Thanks for the tutorial! 🙂
