Flip GIF

Create, flip, and mirror GIFs for free online

Duplicate, mirror, or flip a GIF

Flipping a GIF is more than rotating— it’s having the GIF mirror itself, either horizontally or vertically. In some ways, it’s as if you’re inverting a GIF. Making a GIF reflect itself is useful when creating illusions or you just want to change the direction your GIF is reacting.

Kapwing’s GIF flipper lets you mirror a GIF to change direction or duplicate the GIF so you cover both directions. When you’re finished flipping GIFs, you can even convert them into an MP4 or JPEG file. Use this GIF flipper on your phone or computer in just your web browser.

The Internet’s #1 GIF Flipper

Today, numerous platforms have built-in rotating tools that enable you to flip or mirror your content. The catch— you have to be editing a video. Not a GIF. GIFs tend to be too short for platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Discord to edit on your own in the app.

Create, edit, and post your GIF exactly the way you want with Kapwing. Kapwing’s GIF flipper and rotating tool lets you change the orientation of your GIF in any direction. Flip a GIF horizontally to have your GIF reflect itself, similarly to how we look at our reflections in a lake. Flip vertically to mirror your GIF, essentially duplicating it to mirror itself.

Whether you want to flip a GIF of someone flipping a table or mirror a reaction GIF to add to your next presentation on Google Slides, you can do so in only a few clicks online. Kapwing is a trusted online video, image, and GIF editor that supports the vast array of necessities for creating, editing, and sharing content. This tool works on any device, so you can flip GIFs on your phone, computer, or tablet, regardless of operating system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How do I flip a GIF on iPhone or Android?

You can flip a GIF on iPhone or Android by using an online GIF flipper or by downloading a GIF editing app that lets you flip a GIF on mobile devices. When looking for the right editing app, make sure the app supports GIFs. Oftentimes, many apps only support videos and file types such as MP4 or MOV, but not GIFs. A great tool to use to flip a GIF on iPhone or Android is Kapwing, since they have their own GIF editor powered alongside their online video editor.

How do I make a GIF flipbook?

A flipbook animation consists of multiple photos stitched together to create a digital flipbook animation GIF. Similar to how movies are frames stitched together, GIFs contain lesser frames and are processed as a .gif file type. To make a GIF flipbook, use a GIF editor like Kapwing to upload multiple images, combine them together, and export as a GIF. Now, you can make GIF flipbooks for school, work, social media posts, and more.

Can you flip a GIF on Instagram?

Yes, and no. You can flip a GIF sticker on Instagram Stories, but you cannot flip a GIF on your Instagram feed or Instagram DMs. In other words, you can only flip a GIF on Instagram if it is a sticker, first and foremost.

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.
