Think making the perfect GIF is a hard process? Not if you use Video Converter by Wondershare! This tool allows you to convert content from more than 1,000 formats and is up to 30 times faster than other converters. The best part is their GIF Maker tool. Here’s a list of the several simple steps it will take you to create the perfect GIF.
Step 1: Convert photos.
After installing the Video Converter tool, go to the Toolbox section and click GIF Maker. Click the + Add Files button in the upper left-hand corner to select the images you want to use. You can add JPG, PNG, JPEG, and BMP files to convert.
Step 2: Set GIF preference.
In the bottom left-hand corner, you can choose the output size, frame rate, and file location where you want it saved to. Then click Create GIF on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen to continue.

Step 1: Add video.
Switch from the Photos to GIF tab to the Video to GIF tab, and click + Add Files on the left-hand side to load the video you’d like to work on.
Step 2: Select video clip.
After you choose the video clip you want to convert, enter the specific start or end time into the designated spot on the right-hand side or drag the side lay that is underneath the video.
Step 3: Set the GIF preference.

That’s all you have to do! One other tip: it’s better to make the GIF file size as small as you can (usually 1MB), so it’s easier to view. Even if you have to tweak your images a little, it’s worth it. Also, colors are better at the highest setting to maintain the best image quality.
Now you can share your new GIF with everyone you know! And it’s okay to reveal your secret: that you couldn’t have created your awesome new GIF without the help of Wondershare!
