If you enjoy making GIF files from online video you are sure to enjoy the new online service that has been launched by Imgur that allows you to create a GIF animation from an online video.
The new Imgur Video to GIF service has a size limited of 1G and allows you to paste in a URL right into the input field to make it even easier to create GIF files from hundreds of popular video sites.
Video to GIF is currently only available on the desktop site, Imager explains a little more in their blog post today :
“The GIF has emerged as the primary form of self-expression online. GIFs allow us to share our thoughts to the Internet in a way that everyone can understand.
Traditionally, GIF creation has been a challenge reserved only for those with mad image editing skills. Imgur wants to change that by making the beauty of custom GIFs accessible to the entire Internet. Starting today, Imgur is the best place to discover GIFs and the best place to create them.
Click or drag on the timeline to set your start time. Then drag to adjust the total runtime and/or add text. Choose “Create GIF.””
