The GIF format was created by Steve Wilhite in 1897. Back then, people used GIFs to create their websites and make them look better. Over the past decades, GIF images have been widely used in social media. Now anyone can create their own GIFs and use them to make funny responses to messages or comment under posts.
If you too want to make a GIF out of a video you have, follow our instructions and have fun!
How to Create GIF from a Video
Step 1. Upload your video to Movavi Video Editor. Cut out a small fragment by clicking the scissors icon. Remove unwanted segments by pressing Delete.
Step 2. GIFs have no sound so you might want to add some text. Open the Titles tab and drag the title style you like to the Titles Track. Double-click the text in the preview window and write your caption. Choose font style and size in Font properties. Then, choose text color and add an outline in Color properties. When everything’s done, click the Apply button. Adjust the duration of titles by dragging its edges of the titles track.
Step 3. Your GIF is almost ready! Click Export. In the appeared window, find the GIF format and click Start.
