Gif images are awesome! Making gif images is not only easy it’s a lot of fun. The main aim of creating an ‘image’ that also behaves like a video is so you relive that specific moment from your footage and use it for hilarious, serious, impactful, or casual purposes.
You start by, duh, selecting the video (not the picture, mind you) you want ‘giffed’.
Immediate Next Step
Good video editing software. It doesn’t necessarily have to be an editor, per se, because sometimes a vid-cutter works just as well. It all comes down to what purposes your giffed image is going to be used for. This differs among professionals, mid-rangers, rookies, and noobs.
Why You Wanna Gif?
Gifs are superb digital additions for your presentations, websites, blogs, emails, personal keepsakes, and whatnot. There’s no end to how you can use them as long as you have a clear reason to.
Imagine a dog running away from a kid in a clown suit and suddenly the dog trips and slides into the swimming pool swim to the other end, gets out in a panic, and keeps on running without looking back even once. LMAO! Gif that vid to the section that most tickles your funny bone so you needn’t keep playing the scenes that came before and after.
If your video is 10-minutes long and this crazy-dog scene occurs for a supposed 17-seconds from fright to swim and continued run you can gif the moment, watch as it replays itself over and over in an automatic loop, and has yourself a lol-ly good time.
Why So Seeeeeeerious?
If you have a work-related project and you’d like to show off some captivating animation to better impress upon your clients/superiors the value of what you’re presenting, gifs are cool. If you have a family party and you want to convey a themed message for some reason or other, gifs are amazing choices. If a school or college work comes calling nothing beats a good gif in your project to communicate your meaning to the best effect, especially if it’s going to be digitally shone onto a clear surface,

Hey, you did pay for them, least you can get is more options for your bucks. You can make use of them for a whole bunch of other reasons than just to make gifs.
There’s A Free Version? Why Didn’t You Say So!
On the other side of the leaf, if you (like me) prefer to get right down to giffing and get that excited glint in your eye when the word ‘free’ comes up (this is sometimes me, mind you!) then you’ll like the line-up of free video editing software, which I’m not going to list here because it’s free and you’re probably better of Googling it (work a little for the free stuff, will you!).
One more reason I’m not listing the freebies here is that some of them are no longer used or allowed, so it’s best I save credibility and you spend time finding one you like.
