If you own an iPhone and want to create GIFs on your smartphones, you can choose either the native features of iOS or third-party apps. Here we will show you how:
Use A Live Photo
iPhone’s Live Photos allow you to create GIFs easily and quickly. The feature was first introduced back in 2015 on the iPhone 6S and one of its cool functions is the ability to create GIF animations.
What Live Photos does is to start capturing the video 1.5 seconds before and after you tap on the shutter button, creating a three-second video with sound. Here is how you can use the feature:
Step 1: Open the camera app and tap on the icon that looks like a bull’s eye. When it turns yellow, the Live Photos function is ready.
Step 2: When you have had the three-second video, turn it into a GIF by swiping up.
Step 3: Now you have the choice to use the Bounce, Loop, or Long Exposure effects. To make a GIF, select either Bounce or Loop. The former will play the video backward and forward so you will have the effect of a perpetual loop. The latter, on the other hand, play it in a loop with no sound. Choose the option you want.
Chose A GIF In Messages
If you just want a quick GIF and do not wish to spend time creating your own, Apple Messages have a lot you can use.
Step 1: Launch Messages and tap on an existing conversation or enter a contact.
Step 2: Choose Find Images and type in the keywords.
Step 3: When you found the suitable one, tap on it to add it to the conversation.
Step 4: Select Send.
Use The Shortcut App
Many people have, at least once, accidentally held the shutter button for too long, resulting in a series of still photos at a high resolution. If you open them in succession, it will be like an animation created by a flipbook. They can also be used to create GIFs on iPhones.
Step 1: Open the Shortcuts app, users with iOS 12 and later will have it by default.
Step 2: Find “Convert Burst to GIF” and download it. Save also the “Convert Video to GIF.”
Step 3: The app will ask for your permissions to access your photos and videos, when it does, grant it the permission.
Step 4: Tap on the arrow button and you will see the list with all of your burst photos.
Step 5: Choose the one you want and it will be converted into a GIF.
Step 6: Choose Done and save the newly-created GIF to Photos or share it.
Just Use Giphy
The most well-known app to create GIFs for free is arguably Giphy. You can choose from the app’s huge storage of pre-made ones for most purposes imaginable. You can also create one from the photos you have in Camera Rolls, add text, stickers, and other effects. You will have guidance from Giphy all along the way.
Here is what to do:
Step 1: Find Giphy from the App Store and download it.
Step 2: Follow the instructions to make GIFs.
Step 3: Grant Giphy permission to have access to your phone’s camera.
Step 4: Save or share the GIF with your friends.
