Make GIF files from existing media (images or video) files in your browser!



A handy and easy-to-use app to make GIF files in your browser. Drag & drop existing images or a video file in the app UI (top section), then click on the - Make GIF - button. Wait to see the result and then click on the - Download - button to save the resulting image. You can also adjust several settings related to the GIF image from the right sidebar.


This web application is designed to make GIF files via native HTML5 tools in your browser. It uses a JavaScript API called gifshot. This API is available for all modern browsers and has relatively reliable and fast performance. This web app is not using any other third-party libraries or servers and, therefore, it is safe to use in terms of privacy and security. We do NOT send or store your file(s) in any remote server; everything runs locally on your machine (browser). This web app can be used on any machine that uses modern browsers such as Chrome, Firefox or Opera.

To work with this web application, simply drag & drop your image files or a video file to the input area above, or click on the input area to open the file I/O popup window and then select your files. Then, adjust desired settings related to the GIF image (right sidebar). For example, the width or height of the image or time interval between images in the final GIF. Once settings are done, please click on the - Make GIF - button to generate the GIF file. The time to finish the process depends on the input source and also your machine specs. In general, making a GIF file from a few images is a lot faster than a single video file. If the speed is not satisfactory, try increasing the number of workers (the last setting) and see if the speed improves or not. Once the GIF image is ready, you can save the file to your machine by clicking on the - Download - button.

GIF Maker app is also available as a browser extension. As an extension, this app does not need an internet connection and can be used offline in your browser. Download links for three popular browsers are as following: Chrome, Opera, Firefox.
