Since I started my Ds106 Career, I have had to make a few GIFs for some assignments. I had always wanted to know how to because I see a lot of them all over Twitter and Instagram. So I found this amazing website or online tool, whatever you would like to call it. The website is called Imgur.com, all you have to do is follow my simple instructions and pictures and you will be at pro at it just like myself!
#1. You need to find the video you want to use, it can be from any site that you like.
#2. The second step is to copy the link from the video that you have chosen.
#4. Step 4 you have to, paste your link of the video, into the box and click create GIF.
#5. By this step you should start to get the hang of things. You will get to choose which part of the video you would like to use in your GIF. You can make it up to 5 seconds or you can make it shorter by simply dragging the bar to where you want. After you do that, and get it where you want it, click create GIF.
#6. Imgur will start to create your GIF for you.
#7. When it is done from here you will get the chance to save it how you want. Either embedded code or downloading it. There are also some other options for you to share your newly made GIF!
#8. Click on “Post options” and a menu will come down for you to choose from two options. Once you click embed then your finished give and code will come available for you to copy and paste where you please.
NOW CONGRATS! You have made your first GIF on Imgur, I hope you enjoy using it as much as I do. You can also do other things like memes and such. But I myself haven’t experimented with them yet. I would like to show you the GIF that I made for this tutorial below! Hope you like it:)
