The year was 1997 when I first stepped into the vast world of the Internet. I can recall that moment vividly, as it was filled with a sense of enchantment. It carried the aroma of exploration, the thrill of the unknown, and a hint of danger, considering the minute-by-minute charges.
But above all, it sparked a wellspring of creativity. The Internet was teeming with animated GIFs, despite their slow loading times. And yet, those quirky little animations brought us immense joy. Eventually, the trend of animated GIFs waned due to their bandwidth-heavy nature.
However, with the passage of time and the rise of Twitter, animated GIFs made a glorious comeback, much to my delight. There’s nothing quite like a moving image to convey an idea or evoke laughter among friends. I even incorporate them into some of my articles here.
While I don’t personally create animated GIFs from scratch, like most people, I turn to the Giphy website to find them. Nevertheless, there’s equal pleasure in crafting them effortlessly without any hassle. All you need is a video snippet (where YouTube-DL comes in handy) and Adobe’s Convert To Gif service.
This service truly stands out as a top-notch tool that offers remarkable ease of use. The process is simple: you upload a video, select your desired transition for the GIF conversion, choose the format (horizontal, vertical, square), and voila! You have your dream GIFs ready to captivate social media.
Isn’t it incredible? I highly encourage you to give it a try. A big thank you goes out to Adobe for providing such an exceptional service.
