GIF is a great way to bring more pleasure to our life. Usually when we think of GIFs, a funny cat walking around his tail, a sweetie baby eating sour lemon, and a witty boy stirring up a fire and burning himself come into our mind and leave us a joyful moment. While have you ever wondered how to make a GIF by yourself. In fact, it is easy and quick to make funny, captivating and entertaining GIFs with the help of GIF maker tools.

Nowadays, GIFs are not just for Internet geeks. They have become very common and popular among marketing and business. It’s a fun and innovative way for brands to connect with their audience via newsletters and emails. Many famous websites also use an animated GIF on its Homepage to instantly capture the attention of visitors. Some companies even use animated GIFs to announce their new product releases.

I’m a blogger and I also become an avid fan of GIF. I would create animated advertising banner or landing page for my blog. And sometimes I place an animated GIF as the blog header or insert some GIF animations into my posts. All of these act as attention-grabbing tool making my blog more dynamic and vivified.

Nothing excites visitors more than coming across a blog that includes GIF animation. If you run a blog as well, why are you continuing to use still images on blog when the GIFs become easy to make and space-saving. There are a variety of GIF makers out there. Photoshop is great if you’re a millionaire graphic designer (Personally, it’s expensive and complex!). For most other people, the simple and easy GIF maker would be the best.

When it comes to where and how to make a GIF, the first thing you need to do is prepare some continuous photos or a short video. A lot of photos or a very long video will result in a file size that is too large for most blogs. But with the powerful GIF maker tools, you can just trim any part of the video to make a GIF or simply resize and crop the GIF to make it fit better.

Then we should be able to add some descriptive captions, watermarks or a custom logo, etc. on the GIF. The GIF maker tool should also provide powerful features of fining-tune GIF, adjusting its layers, range frame, playing sequence, opacity, etc. with real time preview.

At last, when the GIF masterpiece is finished, we’d like to have options to save and share GIF anywhere without any trouble. The two GIF maker tools that I prefer the most are PicGIF and VideoGIF since they fit all my needs to make an animated GIF for the spread and growth of my personal blog. Check more here:
