How Do You Create A GIF On An iPhone?

This guide will show how to create GIFs on the iPhone, thanks to two of the best apps on the App Store. GIFs have now become commonly used in the best instant messaging apps. Often, images or short animated videos are worth more than a thousand words, adding a touch of personalization to our chats with friends, relatives, and colleagues. And it is precisely on this last front that it is possible to indulge, creating a variety of unique GIFs well suited to our interlocutor. So, let’s see how to create GIFs on the iPhone and iPad quickly and easily.

How To Turn A Live Photo Into A GIF From The iOS Photos App

The Photos app of the iOS operating system is undoubtedly a good starting point, especially for those who want to transform live photos into GIFs. For those who don’t know, Live Photo is a moving image lasting three seconds that is activated by holding down the display (you can permanently deactivate this function by following our dedicated guide).

Therefore, taking advantage of the Photos app installed on iPhone and iPad, it is possible to convert live photos into GIFs, thus creating excellent short videos to exchange with our contacts. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Unlock your Apple device and access the home screen (we suggest you look at our guide on hiding apps on an iPhone to tidy up your iPhone or iPad).
  2. Open the iOS Photos app.
  3. Tap on the album item located in the bottom menu. On the iPad, you must instead click on the All Albums item in the left menu.
  4. Enter the Media Types section and tap on Live Photo.
  5. Now recover the image to be converted. Alternatively, you can take an image via the Camera app by tapping the Live Photo icon in the top right corner to activate the feature.
  6. Press the small arrow next to the live button to access the effects.
  7. Select Loop (which allows you to repeat the animation infinitely) or Bounce (playing the photo repeatedly) to turn the photo into a cute GIF.

  4. Once everything is complete, press the purple button with the arrow at the bottom right and tap Share GIF to share the GIF you created on your favorite social network.

Another app that we want to suggest is GIF Maker Studio, a program full of features, many of which are available; however, upon subscribing to a subscription program with a price starting at 9.99 euros per month, GIF Maker Studio allows you to convert photos and videos into GIFs applying filters, effects, and stickers.

You can share GIFs on various social networks, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, and others.
