What can I do with this generator?

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

What 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 - See the Images to GIF Generator
  • 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.

    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...

    Why can't I use a video larger than 35MB?

    Imgflip Pro gives you 100MB for uploads and 70MB for video URLs! If you're only using a few seconds of a really long video, you can try to find a shorter version, or just use a computer program to chop up the video.

    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.

    Why is my GIF's timing not accurate?

    Most of the time, this is caused by an old or weird video format. Some video formats don't allow image frames to be extracted as accurately. The best way to fix this is to find a better video source. On youtube, videos with high quality options will give better results.

    Why is my gif just a still frame and not animating?

    This can happen if you selected a small portion of the video such that only one frame was used. It can also happen if you're using internet explorer: the gif itself works fine, the browser just doesn't play it.

    Why is there an "imgflip.com" 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.
