As a Blogger, there are so many things I have to take into account to put a post together. I need a story line, high-quality images and sharing tools. I had never thought of using a GIF in a review, but I plan to start doing this in posts that could really benefit! A GIF is a short, silent animated clip. You can take a standard video you make, crop it to a frame a few seconds long and it will animate without the sound. This is great as I hate to have my readers scan my Blog only for a video to start playing with sound when they perhaps weren’t expecting the noise. This would be great for a child product-a quick GIF of your child playing with the product. Because you can add text and symbols-it would become a branded GIF.
Here is an example of one I made in about 10 minutes to give you an idea. I took a 2 minute video of our tour recently at Universal Studios. My son’s favorite part was when they did the flood scene for us. I went to my App-hit download video-chose this video I had stored in my photos-moved the blue bar to the length of footage I wanted-clicked text to add text then hit Create GIF. From there I saved it and now it is posted here for you! The app is so simple to use. You can set font colors, speed, clip size and more. I could have slowed this down a bit, but I am still playing around with it myself. I did this this first try without reading any instructions because it did such a great job walking me through it on its own.
