Tuesday proved to be a happy and fun packed day for every GIF lover out there, as Giphy launches its amazing new GIF maker. Although not even close the first one to offer such a tool to GIF enthusiasts and Internet trolls everywhere, it is definitely one of the simplest and fastest. And this will, probably, ultimately lead to its success.
It’s actually so easy to use, that the GIF making process in itself becomes fun. The tool has an uploader where one simply drags and drops the video file or the video URL, if you’re working straight online and don’t have the actual video on your computer.
The next step is to choose the start and end points of your video you want to turn into a GIF and then sit back and enjoy your coffee while Giphy does all the work for you. You can also add tags, if this tickles your fancy or you can put a caption to your newly created GIF. All this is, of course, optional.
Another good thing about this new, slick and simple GIF maker from Giphy is the idea that it’s flexible. This translates into the fact that the people at Giphy added a new option, called the Slideshow tool. This is what allows you to create GIFs using multiple images, which you get to combine.
It works like a mash-up, not necessarily an old-school slideshow. For example, let’s say you are creating a GIF of Kim Kardashian crying, because we all want to see that. You can now put sun glasses on her or a clown mask, or even blend an image of Beyonce looking at her derogatory from behind. This is the kind of creative mash-up that the Giphy folks are now expecting you to come up with, since they’ve put this new feature at your disposition.
The fact that Giphy launches its amazing new GIF maker definitely comes as another great GIF related piece of news. Not long ago Facebook introduced to the world the GIF button in the chat window. This amounted up to an exciting past few days for the GIF aficionados, which will now have the chance to take their art one step further. Both in creating it, in this new simple fashion Giphy introduced and sharing it with the world through the GIF button.
So, now you can fill both the Facebook news feed and your friends’ chat windows with amazing and creative GIFs of your five cats.
