Online GIF maker
GIF maker allows you to instantly create your animated GIFs by combining separated image files as frames.
Produced GIFs are of high quality and free of watermarks or attribution, making this tool ideal for developers and content creators.
To make a GIF, you can upload a sequence of GIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, HEIC, AVIF, and other types of images, ZIP archive containing images, and even mix different formats and sizes – they will be converted automatically.
You can also upload animated GIF, WebP, or APNG images, they will be split and delay times preserved. That way GIF maker can also be used to edit, shorten, or merge together existing GIFs.
How to make a GIF?
Press the “Choose files” button above and select the images you want to use as frames.
You can press and hold the ctrl/command key to select multiple files.
When the images are uploaded, you can adjust animation speed and frame order before making the GIF.
After generating the GIF, you can resize, crop, and optimize it or use any of the other tools we provide.
Tips for GIF creation
- You can control the speed for the whole GIF by setting a “Delay time” at the bottom
or adjust the delay for individual frames with a “Delay” input box right next to each frame.
Delay time is in one-hundredths (1/100) of a second between frames – a larger value causes the animation to appear slower.
It’s not advisable to set delay time lower than 2 because some browsers will ignore such values and default to slower animation speed.
- By default, all frames will be sorted in alphabetical order by filename (and will keep the original order if you upload existing animation), you can drag and drop them inside the GIF animator area to rearrange.
- Enable the “Crossfade frames” option, if you want to create a smooth, fading transition between images.
Useful for creating photo slideshows.
Greater “Frame count” and shorter “Fader delay” parameters will result in smoother animation,
but will significantly increase file size because the GIF maker has to generate more additional frames
between each of the original frames. Play around with those values to find the balance for your needs.
- If you upload differently sized images, 2 additional options will appear: to automatically resize and crop them all to match the smallest dimensions, or to choose the alignment (e.g. top-left or center). You can also manually enter top/left coordinates in pixels for each frame.
- If you want to create GIF images from a video, use the Video to GIF tool instead.
- To make a GIF out of a sprite sheet, use the sprite cutter tool.
