GIFs have become an essential part of our every day language - brilliantly capturing the little moments of emotion and reaction that we would otherwise miss. With Kapwing's online GIF editor, creators can now easily make GIFs from videos, images, or even just text.
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.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
