Gfycat was founded in order to upgrade the GIF viewing experience to the 21st century. We all know GIFs are awesome because they play everywhere, they are simple to view, they contain concise content, and they loop over and repeatedly.
The digital language is not limited to letters and numbers, using visual tools is increasingly widespread social networking and messaging services. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and if you are moving, better than better, which is why GIFs are one of the preferred methods in communicating a mood or reinforce a message.
There is a new tool for lovers of animated images. Gfycat Loops, the popular app to create and share GIFs that spent time available in some countries in beta, it has already reached worldwide. We tell you how you can take full advantage of this tool and encourage your publications.
Gfycat Loops lets you satisfy your need for gifs. You can search GIFs, browse among more than 200 categories of memes and reactions, sign in with your account, and manage your own GIFs, but the part you’re most likely looking for is GIF creation.
With Loops, this happens by either directly recording something on the camera, converting an existing video, converting video links from any site, or recording your screen and turning it into a GIF. You can add captions with text and emoji, apply filters to any recording, and personalise whatever GIF you’re creating before sharing it.
Gyfcat allows you to create GIFs easily in three ways: You can use the camera of the device and record the scene you want, you can capture screen Mobile or choose a fragment of an online video you’ve found on YouTube, Facebook or other service online video playback.
If you choose the third option, you will need to copy the video URL and paste it into the “Paste URL” section. In this case, you must also bear in mind that the app needs to import the video, so if it is long it might take a while.
Once you have, the video you want to convert into GIF you can edit it by selecting only a fragment, which by default will have 15 seconds maximum duration.
In addition to cutting, the piece that interests you, Gfycat also let you add text to the image, crop the frame to your liking, or add filters to choose between black and white, sepia or reversed.
If you prefer to give it actually Gfycat has a library of huge GIFs with hundreds of categories. Within each section, there are plenty of GIFs so you choose the one that best represents what you want to express. Once you selected you can share directly in social networks.
