FAQ

What is an animated gif?

An animated GIF is a GIF file that contains several images or frames, which are displayed in a certain order to convey animation. The animated GIF will repeatedly play when shown on a web page or stop after a few sequences. Animated GIFs are typically used for banner advertising, and the animation applies only to a small section of the image to keep the file size small.

When should I use an animated GIF?

You can use animated GIFs to: create a short ad (if you have a static visual ad, you can turn it into an animated GIF); showcase the details of a product (a short sequence of images draws more attention than a static visual); explain a process or a how-to; create a micro-presentation; tell a story (sometimes visuals are better than words); animate changing data; showcase your brand’s personality.

Can I make a GIF with my phone?

You can make animated GIFs with your smartphone. If you have a short video on your phone that you want to convert into an animated GIF, you can use an app to edit and convert it into a GIF file. Browse the Apple's App Store or Google’s Play Store (depending on the device you use) to find an app that suits your needs. After you cut, edit and turn the video into an animated GIF, you can also choose how many times you want the sequence to repeat or if it should loop endlessly.

What size should an animated GIF be?

Ideally, you want to keep the size of your animated GIF under 1MB. The bigger the file size, the slower it’s going to load. When creating a GIF, you should keep in mind that a smaller-sized GIF size would work best for every type of website and internet connection. This means you may have to tweak and resize your GIF's dimensions. Try not to tweak its colors, though and keep the highest setting, which is 256 colors. On the other hand, you can perform a lossy compression and reduce the GIF size without losing its quality.

What is the resolution of a GIF?

It’s best to try and keep your GIFs resolution no higher than 960 pixels wide. That’s because most GIF files are distributed through direct messaging or shared on social media platforms. Users check their social media accounts mostly on their phones, and thus the GIF will appear on small screen sizes. A smaller resolution will increase your GIF's visibility, but you also want to make sure it loads fast.

How many colors can an animated GIF have?

Animated GIF is a format that can display up to 256 colors. Similar to PNG-8, it supports 8‑bit color but also animations consisting of different frames. Each frame can have a different color palette, with 256 colors per frame. However, there are some workarounds that you can do to end up with an animated GIF that has more than 256 colors.
