Animated GIFs, Learn How to Make Your Own

Create your first animated GIF

While you are here, you will create an animated GIF that represents your business. Animated GIFs are small, short videos that will keep repeating until the viewer stops them.

Animated GIFs help to get the viewers’ attention. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a moving image can be worth much more than a thousand words.

The moving image above is showing people what kind of ad they can make for an online flyer.

Numbers to keep in mind:

  • Maximum dimension of 500 x 500 px
  • Maximum number of colours that will show up: 256
  • Maximum size that can be uploaded into WordPress: 2 MB

Note that we can make them into clickable links. People click on them to go to a page, post, YouTube video or section of a page. See example.

Careful of too much movement

If a visitor is trying to read a page, excessive movement can be too distracting. Sometimes you want to keep the movement quite subtle.

Elsewhere on this website, we are telling people that we can create a quiz for them. The quiz can be addd to their Facebook page to help promote their business.

animated GIFsThey can have, say, 15 questions. 14 will be interesting & entertaining to the visitor. One question can be specifically about our client’s business.

We can have the graphic you see here that has very little movement. There is just enough movement to get the visitors’ attention.
