If you're trying to figure out how to move a photo, you might mean a couple of different things: either you are needing to move a photo from one storage place to another, or you want to actually make your photo move, like an animation.

The good news is that regardless of which option you are looking for, we can help you out:

  1. How to move photos to different locations
  2. How to ake a photo move

1: Move Photos to Different Locations

For the first option, I recommend using Kapwing to move any photo from your computer or an online location and store it on other sites, or your computer itself.

When you head to the Kapwing Studio, you will see the three options for uploading a photo: Get Started, Upload a File, and Paste a URL. You are going to want to use this third option for our purposes so navigate to wherever you have your photo online.

Right-clicking will give you the option to copy the photo's URL.

The best way to get the photo’s URL is to right-click on the image and select Copy Image Link. Now, head back to Kapwing and paste this URL into the Paste a URL bar. This will automatically upload the image into the editing studio.

Feel free to use any of Kapwing’s many tools to change up your photo, from adjusting the brightness and contrast, to adding some of your own custom text to the photo. Whatever you do, the next step will be to export the photo, which can be done by clicking on the Export Image button in the top-right corner of the screen.

You can move your photo right from Kapwing.

This will take you to a new screen where you can choose what to do with your photo, including downloading the photo right to your computer or posting it on other social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

The download page also serves as a storage location for your photo. Just copy the link and keep it somewhere, and the photo will be stored at this location on Kapwing.

2: How to Make a Photo Move:

Kapwing can help with animating a photo as well, adding some movement to a static image to bring it to life. Just as in the last process, head to the Kapwing Studio and upload your photo using the Upload button or URL bar.

There is an Animation section for your photo.

Select your photo and find the Animate tab, which will give you a handful of different animations that you can use for your photo. Click through each one to see the different effect they have on your photo and choose which one looks best for you. Once you have one chosen your animation, you can adjust the animation speed in the same menu.

You can export the animated photo as a GIF.

With the animation set in place, select the Export Button in the top-right corner again and click on the downward arrow next to it. On this list that comes up, select Export as GIF.

Your animation will now be sent to Kapwing’s cloud services and give you the option to download the new GIF straight to your computer.

Whichever path you are looking for with the popular search term, Kapwing helps make the process much easier. Be sure to check out Kapwing on YouTube and Instagram for more online tutorials, as well as follow us on Twitter for updates and news for our online video editor.
