How to Make a Color Changing GIF

How to Make a Color Changing GIF
  1. Upload GIF
    Start making a GIF that changes colors by uploading your own GIF from your computer, phone, or tablet. You can also paste a GIF URL link to upload to Kapwing.
  2. Apply the “Hue Rotate” effect
    Open the “Effects” tab in the right-hand sidebar and select “Hue Rotate.” This will automatically give your GIF a duration on your timeline. You can adjust the timing of your GIF to decide how many loops you want the rainbow effect to be active.
  3. Export and share
    Export your GIF and download a file. Share your new, color changing GIF online in your deck, a social media post, a Reddit discussion thread, or in a simple message to a friend.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

What does hue rotate do?

Hue rotate revolves around changes in the hue of the content, giving a “rainbow” or “surrealistic” animated effect. In other words, the color scheme of the content rotates through each hue, which is the origin of each color (red, blue, yellow, orange, violet, and even mixed colors). You can change the hue of a GIF by using a GIF editor with enhancement tools that give you control over hue, brightness, saturation, opacity, and more.

How do you add effects to GIFs?

Apply different filters to GIFs or add any text, animations, elements, and more in a video or GIF editor. Use either a video or GIF editor to add effects to GIFs so you maintain the high quality of your content and so your content remains supported throughout the entire editing and exporting process.

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!
