What can I do with this gif maker?

You can make high quality animated GIF images online for free, with simple and powerful customization options.

What media sources can I make gifs from?

You can:

  • Make GIFs from Youtube, Vimeo, and many other video websites. Just copy and paste the video URL.
  • Make GIFs from videos on your phone or computer. You can upload almost any video format to make a GIF, but .mp4 and .ogg videos are best because then you can instantly preview your GIF with our video player.
  • Make GIFs from other GIFs. Just paste the URL into the input above!
  • Make GIFs from pictures or other images, just click the Images-to-GIF tab!
  • Can I save my GIFs online?

    Yes! Just make sure that you are logged into an Imgflip account, and all GIFs you create will be saved. You can also download your GIFs and keep them private if you want, just remember to check the "private" box.

    Why is there an "" watermark on my GIFs?!?

    The Imgflip watermark helps other people see where the GIF was created. We really don't want your GIFs to look bad though, so we made it as small as possible while still being readable, and it will not even show up on tiny GIFs. You can disable the watermark completely with a Pro account, if you really need to have watermark-free images.

    Why does my GIF not animate on Facebook / other social media website?

    Facebook will sometimes decide to animate gifs, and sometimes not. For best chances, make sure the width and height of your gif are both larger than 200px, since Facebook tends to not animate small gifs. Sometimes you have to click share, then exit out of the window, and then click share again. Other social media websites may have similar issues, because they can decide to handle GIFs however they want, outside of our control.

    Video to GIF

    Which video formats can I upload?

    Some of the popular supported video formats are flv, avi, mov, mp4, mpg, mpeg, wmv, 3gp, asf, swf, ogg, h264, rm. But there are hundreds more...

    How can I make my GIFs higher quality?

    Make sure the video resolution is 480P or higher for any videos you upload. This is the Youtube format imgflip uses most, and gifs will generally look great up to a width of 640px when using 480p video. Framerate (FPS) is also very important - a high framerate (above 15 FPS) will make sure your GIF plays smoothly. Imgflip Pro will allow you to create even higher quality GIFs by raising the limits on various settings.

    How do I put audio/sound on my GIFs?

    Imgflip supports sound on gifs made from any video that has audio! To enable, you'll need to be using an Imgflip Pro account, because our server costs are higher when using audio. Once enabled, your visitors to will be able to toggle audio on and off using the sound button.

    Images to GIF

    How do I make a GIF from images?

    1. Upload images. Click the upload button and select as many images as you want. To select multiple images you can use SHIFT, CMD, or CTRL, or tap and hold if using a mobile device. You can always add more later!
    2. Arrange images. Drag and drop the images you selected until you get them ordered correctly. The Auto Arrange button will sort your images alphabetically (click twice for reverse order).
    3. Adjust options. Adjust the Delay until the speed of your GIF looks normal. Remember to check "private" if you're not going to share it online.
    4. Generate. After making your gif, you can download it and share the link with friends. If you're logged in, your gif will be stored on your images page.

    What can I do with this gif maker?

    You can make slideshows from photos you've taken, create custom animations from your own creative drawings or clipart, or stitch together frames that you've extracted from a video. Endless possibilities! Our image-to-gif maker allows you to make unlimited high quality animated gifs online for free, with lots of customization options, and with no limit on the number of images.

    Which image formats can I upload?

    The gif maker currently supports PNG, JPEG, and GIF images.

    How can I make my GIF higher quality?

    By default, the quality is set to 10 to prefer creation speed over quality. You can try changing it up to 1 (best), but it will take a little longer to create. If you want even higher quality gifs, check out Imgflip Pro!
