Record, Edit, and Download GIF Files for Free Online
Easily make the perfect animated GIF
GIFs can be used almost anywhere photos can, from viral meme formats and profile pictures to reaction comments and video clips. Whether you want to start with a video, photos, other GIFs, or text, the Kapwing Studio lets you record, create, edit, and download GIF files quickly.
How to Make a GIF from Videos or Photos Online
Start by uploading a video, GIF, or photo from your computer or phone, or paste the link to a file you found on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, or any location on the web. In the Studio, you can use the Record tool to use your camera or screen to make a GIF, or go ahead and start editing. The Studio lets you add text, transitions, animations, images, crops, filters, and speed adjustments to your GIF.
You can easily convert your video to a GIF by clicking the dropdown menu next to the Export button. This will allow you to take any content you create and output it as an animated GIF. Remember that animated GIFs will not play sound, so converting a video into a GIF will remove any sound from the video file.
Kapwing Studio also supports a large library of text animations as well as special effects that you can apply to your GIF. You can remove the background of a video, for example, and add a different background to convert to a funny GIF to share with friends.
When your project is all ready to go, export it as a GIF file and either download it to your device or share it directly to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. These animated files are ideal for quick comments, meme formats, and in-text video embeds.
