Create GIF from YouTube Video

Here is how you can very easily create an animated GIF out of a YouTube Video like the one we created for Sandia Seed, below:

It's super easy with – here's how:

  1. Go to YouTube on your desktop, and open the video which you want to create a GIF out of.

  2. Type “gif” before youtube in the URL, then hit enter, this will redirecte you to site, which automatically creates an animated GIF out of your video! It's awesome because you you can also trim the GIF down, and choose the start time, and end time to make the GIF shorter. It also allows for sharing the GIF as a link, as well as a download option! Very cool free service, you can upgrade the service if you want an unbranded version.

I especially love how easy is to use, their editor makes it super intuitive to trim your gif made from any YouTube video. Have fun gif'in!
