Method 1 of 5: Create a-g.webp" />
Step 1. Choose an application to convert videos to-g.webp" />
There are many options, such as Giphy-g.webp" />
- If you would rather download an application, you should first read the reviews in the application store of your mobile device's operating system so as not to download and run unreliable applications.
- Generally, the online applications mentioned above can create-g.webp" />
- To use most of these applications, you must upload the video you want to use to a website like YouTube or Vimeo where you can share it via the URL, while in others, like Giphy, you can upload the videos directly to the application..
Step 2. Choose the video that you will use to create the-g.webp" />
Find a video online or, if you're using Giphy, choose one that you have saved on your device. Make sure the video is 0.5-15 seconds long. If you are going to use an online video, open it in your browser.
Step 3. Upload the video to the application
This step will differ depending on the application you use.
- If you are going to use a YouTube video, open it in your browser, copy the address that appears in the bar at the top of the screen and paste it in the box indicated in the application, which should say something like "Paste the address here ". Press Enter or click "OK."
- If you are going to upload a video that you have saved on your device, press the button that says "Browse your video files" to choose the video you want.
Step 4. Determine the duration of the-g.webp" />
Each application offers different editing options, but in general, you should be able to specify which part of the video you want to convert into a-g.webp" />
Step 5. Add text to the-g.webp" />
Almost all applications have options for adding text or other elements to-g.webp" />
Step 6. Create the file
When you're done, click the "Create GIF" or "Save GIF" button to open the "Save" dialog box. Name the-g.webp" />
- If the file is larger than 10 MB, these applications generally create a file with the extension ".gifV" instead of ".gif", although this will not affect the characteristics of the file itself.

Method 2 of 5: Create a-g.webp" />
Step 1. Gather the images
To create a-g.webp" />
Step 2. Choose an application to convert images to-g.webp" />
There are many options, such as GifCreator and GIFMaker Video Maker, which you can use directly in your Internet browser without having to download them.
- Applications of this type often have similar features, such as the ability to adjust frame sizes and control animation speed, and can also be used on mobile devices that support Internet browsers.
- There are also applications that you can download, but the downside is that the free ones usually carry a lot of advertising. Therefore, you should read the reviews before downloading a particular application.
Step 3. Upload an image to the application
Open the application in your browser and press the button that says "Upload images" (or something like that, depending on the application you use). A dialog box will open so you can browse the files on your computer and choose the image. Double-click it or select it and press "Open." This will bring up a thumbnail version of the image in the application.
Step 4. Resize the image
Most of these applications offer configuration options for each image, which allow you, among other things, to adjust the size and the number of times you want it to repeat for the duration of the-g.webp" />
Step 5. Continue uploading and making adjustments to the images
Continue uploading images by clicking the "Upload Images" button. In most of these applications, after uploading all the images, you can drag them to move them, so don't worry if you upload them out of order. You can also change the size of the images. When finished, if the application you are using does not show you a preview of the-g.webp" />
Step 6. Create the-g.webp" />
When you finish modifying the order and size of the images, click "Create-g.webp" />
Method 3 of 5: Create a-g.webp" />
Step 1. Open Gimp
If you prefer to create-g.webp" />
Step 2. Create a new image
Open the "File" menu and click "New" to open a dialog containing options for the image.
- You will see two boxes labeled "Width" and "Height" followed by "px", which refers to the pixels in the image. Enter the desired size in pixels in each box. If you prefer to use another unit of measurement, open the drop-down menu where it says "px" and select the unit you want.
- Where it says "Fill with," choose a color for the background of the GIF. Below the side toolbar you will find two boxes with many colors. Select the box that says "Main Color" to make the image color the color of the front box, and select the box that says "Background Color" to make the image color the color of the back box.
- Click "OK" to create the image.
Step 3. Make the "Layers" dialog visible
Open the "Windows" menu, select "Dockable Dialogs" and then choose "Layers."
Step 4. Create a layer for the first element of the-g.webp" />
Each element of the animation must be on a different layer. To open the "New Layer" dialog, click on the icon with a square piece of paper in the lower left corner of the "Layers" dialog.
- Enter the name of the layer in the corresponding field to make it easier for you to switch from one layer to another.
- To make the animation smooth, set the color to "Transparent" and click "OK."
Step 5. Add images or text to the layer
If you want to draw on this layer, click on the brush icon in the sidebar and choose the color you want to draw with. If you want to add text, click the icon with the letter A in the sidebar and then click anywhere on the layer to write.
- Everything you add in a single layer will animate together. That is, if you add text and draw a drawing on the same layer, they will be in the same box as the finished-g.webp" />
- After adding images or text, locate the "Opacity" option in the "Layers" dialog. You can move the slider down to make a layer less opaque.
Step 6. Create another layer
You can repeat the layering procedure as many times as you like. Give each one a different name and then click "OK."
Step 7. Preview the animation
Open the "Filters" menu and click "Animation" and then "Playback" to preview the animation from the layers you have created.
Step 8. Change the animation options
Open the "File" menu and click "Export" and then "-g.webp" />
- If you want the animation to play in a continuous loop, check the box next to the "Perpetual Loop" option.
- Next to the "Delay between frames when not specified" option, enter how long (in milliseconds) you want each frame to display in the final animation. The default time is 100 milliseconds, so the preview will look faster. Enter a longer time, such as 300 or 600 milliseconds, and then click "Export."
Step 9. Make more adjustments to the delay
If you want each of the layers to display for a different time in the final animation, you can set the duration of each layer separately.
- In the "Layers" dialog, right-click on each layer's name and then "Edit layer attributes."
- Enter the duration in milliseconds next to the layer name without leaving a space:
LAYER NAME (200ms).
- Click "OK" to save the changes to that layer and continue in the same way with the other layers you want to modify.
Step 10. Preview the animation and export it
Open the "Filters" menu and click "Animation" and then "Playback" to see the changes you have made to the animation. When you want to save the image, click "File", then "Export" and then "-g.webp" />
Method 4 of 5: Create a-g.webp" />
Step 1. Create a new image in Photoshop
If you'd rather use a video to create a-g.webp" />
- Open the "File" menu and click "New" to open the options for new files that you can create. Enter the name of the animation in the box labeled "Name."
- Pay attention to the units of measurement next to the boxes labeled "width" and "height", as these can be pixels, centimeters, millimeters, etc., depending on what you usually wear. If you are familiar with pixels, you can change the units to that option or vice versa if you prefer to use centimeters or millimeters. Enter the dimensions for the width and height of the image.
- Choose the background color for the animation. Click the menu next to "Background" or "Background Contents" (this will depend on the version of Photoshop you have) to choose the color.
- Click "OK" to create the new image applying these settings.
Step 2. Open the "Layers" and "Animation" panels
Each frame of the animation must be on a different layer, so you will need to work with the "Layers" panel. Click the "Window" menu and check the "Layers" and "Animation" panels so they appear on the desktop.
Step 3. Create the layer for the first frame of the animation
Click the "(+)" sign in the "Layers" panel to create a new layer. In the corresponding box, give it a name with which you can easily differentiate it from the other layers, such as "Layer 1". Then make sure the fill color is transparent or the same color as the background and click "OK."
Each element of the animation must be in a separate frame. So everything you add to this new layer will show up in the same frame as the finished animation
Step 4. Add text or drawings to the new layer
To make a drawing, choose a color from the swatches panel (where you can display squares with all the available colors) and then click on the brush tool. To add text, click on the icon with the letter T.
Step 5. Create another layer
To create the second frame of the animation, you must create a new layer.
- If the second frame will be the same as the first only with a slight modification, you can clone the previous layer so you don't have to create a new one. For this, right click on the layer and choose the "Duplicate layer" option.
- Repeat either creating new layers or cloning them until there is one layer for each frame of the animation.
Step 6. Create new frames in the "Animation" panel
In this panel, which is near the bottom of the screen, click on the icon with a small rectangle and an even smaller square on it. This is the "New Box" icon. Click again until you have the same number of frames as layers. For example, if the animation you are going to create has 7 layers, you must create 7 frames.
Step 7. Edit the first frame in the "Animation" panel
Click on the first box. As shown in its miniature version in the panel, this box currently contains all the layers of the animation.
- You can see that in the "Layers" panel, there is an eye icon next to each layer, which indicates that the layer is visible. To have the first frame in the "Animation" panel only show the first layer, click the eye icon on all other layers so that you can't see them.
- You can modify the duration time of the frame (in seconds) below its thumbnail version in the panel. At this time, the time should say "0 seconds".
Step 8. Edit the other boxes
Go to the next frame and click the eye icon on all other layers except the one you want to display in that frame. Do not forget to modify the duration time of each frame below its thumbnail version in the panel.
Step 9. Press "Play" to test the animation
This button is at the bottom of the screen below the boxes.
Step 10. Save the animation as a-g.webp" />
Click "File" and then "Save for web and devices." Check that you've selected the "GIF" extension from the drop-down menu under "Default" and then click "Save."
Method 5 of 5: Create a Non-Animated-g.webp" />
Step 1. Choose the image you want to convert into a-g.webp" />
Some websites or applications only accept images in-g.webp" />
- If the image you want to convert is on the Internet, you must first save it to your Mac or PC computer.
- If you need to scan the image first, read the article How to scan photos.
Step 2. Open the image in image editing software
Locate the image on your computer using the file explorer. Then do the following:
- On Mac: Double-click the image to open it in Preview.
- In Windows: Right-click on the image, click "Open with" and choose "Paint."
Step 3. Save the file with the-g.webp" />
Once you've opened the image with Preview (if you're on a Mac) or Paint (if you're on Windows), do the following:
- On Mac: Open the "File" menu and click "Save As." In the "Format" drop-down menu, choose "GIF," name the image in the box next to "Save As," and then click "Save."
- On Windows: Open the "File" menu and then click the arrow next to the "Save As" option. Choose the "-g.webp" />
- Animated images and banners can be helpful, but you should limit their use on websites. A good web design should not have a lot of animation, as this distracts from the other elements on the page.
