Making GIF animation online
Hassan Tanvir Mansur
Maybe you have seen gif animated pictures many times in social networks. However, have you thought about making gif animated pictures? Did you try yourself to create your first Gif animated picture? If not read the following steps to create your first gif animation.
There are many online and offline tools to make gif animation. We have experienced with the more common tool Adobe's Photoshop. As a beginner today, I will try to discuss how to create gif-animation in online instead of Photoshop. We will go to- Gifmaker.me from our browser.
Gifmaker is an online-based tool and is comfortable to use for anyone who wants to make 'GIF Animation'. To make your first gif animation first, create a folder in desktop for example (GIF Pictures). Bring all the pictures into the folder that we have created. Rename the pictures like 1, 2 -5 to maintain the sequence of pictures for animation. Click upload images from 'gif maker me' find the folder from desktop then press 'CTRL+A' in keyboard and click open. Clicking on 'open' option will allow bringing images in Gifmaker.me tool. After putting the pictures from the right side of the tool, you will see pictures are being previewed in control panel. We are almost done. Now it is time to control animation speed. Fix the speed that you want for animation for example '500 milliseconds'.
To make animation more customized we can add repeat time that defines how many times animation will be showing. For example once or twice times. Now click on 'Create Gif animation.' Wait for a sec. After processing the website will allow downloading the new GIF.
