Make a GIF with your Web Camera:
- Go to https://andtheniwaslike.co.
- Click “I want to make a GIF” and allow camera access.
- In the center of the camera view click “Record”.
- The countdown will start and then it will record. You only have a few seconds so make your message quick.
- You can choose the begin and end point of your GIF.
- You can also choose to loop the GIF (top), have it play forward, then backward (middle), or have it play in reverse (bottom).
- Either click “Save” or “Start Over”.
- On the next screen, you can share to social media tools or right click on the image and save it to your device.
Make a GIF with your Google Photos Images:
- Use the Google Photos app on your mobile device to auto-upload device pictures: How To Document
- Manually (or auto upload) upload images to Google Photos.
- Go to photos.google.com.
- Drag your images from your computer directly to the screen.
- Go to photos.google.com or use the Google Photos app and select the check mark in the top left corner of any image you want to be included in your GIF.
- You can choose between 2-50 images for any one GIF.
- Once your images are selected, click the “+” icon in the top right.
- Select Animation.
- Your animated GIF will be created. Download or insert this image into any project or social media post to share.
Make a GIF with flipanim.com:
- Go to flipanim.com.
- Look at the tools:
- The drawing process is a lot like those old school paper flip books we did as kids. You draw a little, add a page, draw a little more, add a page, etc. The advantage is that you can see the previous drawing to continue from.
- Start your drawing.
- Click the plus icon.
- You will see your previous drawing. Draw your moving object in the new location.
- Each sheet is a new “movement”. If the object is not moving (just adding things) you can use the duplicate icon to keep the previous drawing and just add to it.
- When you are done click “Save” and title it. The GIF will be uploaded and the next screen shows it in action. Right-click on the image and download to your device!
...and remember...it is a “J” sound in GIF (like the peanut butter)!
