The Easiest Way to Add Image to GIF Online

Whether you have your own GIF, chose a GIF from our copyright-free media library powered by GIPHY, or created a GIF from a YouTube video or TikTok, you can always add more images to the original GIF using Kapwing’s online GIF editor. Amp up your GIFs when you use Kapwing to add images, text, animations, and more to your GIF.

Adding substance and more layers to your GIFs goes a long way. You might want to add your own logo to a GIF or add a watermark to your own GIF to make sure you’re credited and your content can trace back to you as it travels across the Internet. Create substantial reaction GIFs or memes you can send to anyone and get a laugh from it when you add relevant, funny pictures to your GIF.

Kapwing is accessible to anyone online, regardless of the kind of device you have. Simply drag and drop your desired image to a GIF in the editor, and you’re done! Add as many images to your GIF as you’d like and explore your own creative mind. Send your finished GIF through Discord, Twitter, Instagram, or even email to share with others online.

[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
