How To Create GIF Photos On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus

Look, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus camera is powerful enough to give you outstanding snapshots and videos. If you’re up for some more, it’s not the camera, but your passion for immortalizing special frames. Samsung gets that and this is one of the reasons why it packed up the Camera module with essential tech features while it also enhanced the stock Camera app with some irresistible effects. Thus you might want to know how to create GIF photos on Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus

In one of our previous Galaxy S9 tutorials, we showed you how to use the motion photos option, creating and sharing motion photos as videos with all your loved ones. But this feature left aside – you know it’s similar to the one from Apple, called Live Photos – you still have at least one just as cool alternative to make ordinary photos funny and out of the box.

As the title of this new tutorial suggests, we are talking about the option of creating animated GIFs on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. This Graphics Interchange Format, which happens to be specified as GIF89, is a file that reproduces a series of related images, in a specific order, at a constant speed.
