How to Convert Video to GIF on Your iPhone and iPad

If you want to share your favorite moments from videos with others, turning them into GIFs is a great option. With the GIF Creator app, you can create beautiful GIFs on your iPhone and iPad without having to buy any additional software. In this blog, we will guide you through the process of converting video to GIF on your iPhone and iPad.

Step 1: Choose the Video Format

To convert a video to GIF, you need to choose a format. There are three options available: MP4, H.264, and AVI. Once you’ve selected a format, you can begin the conversion process.

Step 2: Convert the Video

To start the conversion process, choose “Convert” from the main screen of your iPhone or iPad. Then select the source video file and save it as an MPEG-4 file. This file can be converted to GIF using the “GIF” function on your iPhone or iPad.

Step 3: Create a GIF Conversion Account

If you want to convert videos for use on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, you need to create a GIF conversion account and upload the video files to that account. After processing and saving them as GIFs, you can share them with your friends on social media or use them as background images for websites or apps.

Step 4: Use GIFs on Your iPhone and iPad

To create a GIF, open the photo or video you want to use as a source and select “GIF” from the pop-up menu. Then, add text or videos to represent each frame of the GIF. To save the GIF, select “Save As” from the pop-up menu and enter a filename for the GIF. You can also share your GIFs on social media by sharing a link to the image or video you used as a source and adding text or videos to represent each frame of the GIF.

Step 5: Convert Video Files to GIF

To convert a video file to GIF, you will need an iPhone or iPad device, a video converter, and some basic video editing skills. First, open the video converter and select the desired format of your video. Then, input the filename of your converted video. In most cases, this will be something like “videos/0003_1234567890_GIF”. Next, set up a GIF converter on your device and input the filename of your converted videos into the Convert button. After completing the conversion process, you can save your GIFs in your device’s Photos folder.
