How to make a gif & edit it w/o Photoshop

I’ve been getting a lot of asks about this and I’ve decided to make a tutorial. You don’t need Photoshop to do this, but you do need to download something (you don’t have to install it).

U P D A T E

Ok ever since I’ve posted this, there’s been LOADS of updates so I’ve decided to let you guys in on the cool & functional new features!

You can download the latest version (4.0) here(:

Again, I will be using the ‘One Thing’ music video as an example

Once you’ve made your gif, click on Edit and a new window will open up with all of the frames. Right click and you’ll see the new available options:

RESIZE:

You can change the size of the gif, even bigger than it already is! Just click and drag the percentage.

YOYO:

This adds reverse frames so you get that “yoyo” effect.

KEYBOARD INPUTS:

Basically a more precise way of editing it for a lack of a better word. You can change and the size of the gif to exactly how you want it. You can delete frames in between rather than manually deleting every single one. And you can also change the delay to your desired number. Keep in mind that 0.06 is the minimum delay time accepted. If you go 0.03 or under, it’ll round it to 0.1, which is basically 10 fps.

DRAW GREENSCREEN:

So for this one, you draw a green screen so that part of the gif is moving and part is still. **You have to start from frame one and it’ll automatically draw the green screen on the rest of the frames. If you would like to only draw a green screen on one frame, just hold shift while you’re drawing. You can also automatically fill in with green screen. First, draw a box or anything that’s enclosed (in the first image i drew a rectangle at the top). Then hold Ctrl and click on the part that you want to fill in with green. This tool is very handy when you want to reduce the gif size.

You can also change to colour of the green screen as sometimes it clashes with colours on the gif.

SAVING OPTIONS:

You can now save it into different colour formats (usually to save file size). Custom allows you to change it to the nearest colour manually.

Preview allows you to see your gif before you save it.

SOME TIPS:

  • Record your gif at 16fps. I find that it’s smoother that way rather than the default 10fms
  • If possible, change your video into the highest quality for a higher quality gif
