Create GIF On Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8 Plus

GIF photos are one of the most shared image types on the internet. They combine the small file size and share ability of images, but can include moving content with multiple frames like videos. It is possible to create GIF photos on your Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus and in this guide we are going to provide the information you need to create your very own GIF photos. This will allow you to bring new life to your photos, or allow you to create short, easily shareable video clips.

Samsung already has it’s own motion photo mode on the Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus, but many users find that turning their photos into short GIFs is a much easier way to do things.

GIF is short for Graphics Interchange Format. It’s a type of image file that has moving properties. Unlike other image formats, GIFs can imitate videos by showing a series of frames stitched together. For example, a short video of a man doing a backflip can be turned into a GIF file. When somebody views the GIF file, they will see the frames being played repeatedly.

Compatibility for GIFs hasn’t been great in the past, but more developers are moving to support them on their own platforms. Being able to create your own GIFs on your Galaxy S8+ Plus is incredibly handy these days, especially because platforms like Messenger and WhatsApp now support GIF sharing.
