Turn yourself into a GIF-machine with tumblr’s new feature

GIFs make the world go around. Ok, maybe they don’t but we use them every single day of our lives and reblog the shit out of them. I mean here’s a prime example of a brilliant one.

But fear not if you struggle with Photoshop and hate using the apps to make GIFs which give you a horrible watermark. Tumblr have listened to all our worries and incorporated heaven into their app, you can now create your very own GIFs using photo bursts or videos direct from your phone.


If you want to have a go at making your own you can in these 5 simple steps.

  1. Open Tumblr

2. Tap the ‘Compose’ button.

3. Click the ‘Photo’ option. (Are you keeping up? It’s not difficult yet is it)

4. Pick a photo bust or video that you want to make into a GIF.

5. Select the item you want and edit it so it looks the most GIFFable. You can change the GIF speed, zoom on the image and more if you really want.


It’s as simple as that, if you’re using an Android phone you’ll have to wait a little longer until it’s rolled out to you guys but your time will come precious.
