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.

Step 4: Generate your GIF & Download it!
