A free online gif maker allows users to convert uploaded digital pictures or videos into gif images. Some websites allow users to input a video URL directly and convert the link into a gif.
Users can resize their gifs after they upload the desired images, says Gif Creator. There is even a Chrome extension that can allow users to make a gif on the spot, according to Make a Gif. Users can also sign up to store the gifs that they have made or uploaded. The term GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format, states Tech Target. The animated gif may loop endlessly or it can stop the animation after a selected sequence.
