Learning how to make an animated GIF is a pretty cool thing. You can show them off to your friends and families, and maybe even upload them to YouTube.

If you do not know, an animated GIF is just a group of pictures set to appear one after the other. There is no real animation involved.

If you want to make your own GIF you’re going to need a few things:

  • A basic idea of what your GIF is going to do

    Hi Edwin
    It is a very long time since I have made an animated GIF. I had a little program that was able to do that. Is I remember all the pictures had to be the same size and it took forever. It looks pretty easy with these online tools.

  4. Great article! I like how you posted 6 sites that can be used to make GIF animations. That way, in case one goes down, I can use another! I usually make animations with Windows Movie Maker, or make them on my DSi using Flipnote Studio. I never knew you could make them online! =D

    The more resources the better so like you said if one fails you still have a backup. I’ve never made a animated GIF in Windows Movie Maker, I should try it. Looks like fun :)

    Nice GIF you made with the Goonies. Definitely one of my favorite movies of all time. Thanks for the tutorial! I watched it so we’ll see if it works for me. I’m trying to make a GIF for my friend’s birthday.

  14. Wow…I wouldn’t have thought it would be so easy to make an animation like that. Thanks for the tips and especially so many sites to make the animations. That’s is really cool. I’d love to make one…so it sounds similar to how you make a photo book..upload your pictures and go from there. Sounds great…can’t wait to try it out!
