Now, creating youtube to gif can be a lot of fun, but it’s also a great way to actually promote your video and your channel. Now, YouTube really gives a lot of love to channels that can actually bring traffic to YouTube. The reason why is they can do more ads, and if they make more ads, they make more money. (cash register ring) Pretty simple, right? Well, creating animated G Ifs is a powerful way to actually showcase your video without doing the embed, so you’re actually bringing the traffic to YouTube. So in this article, I’m going to show you three different ways how to actually create animated GIFs for your YouTube channel, so let’s do this. Alright, so in this article I’m going to show you three different ways that you’re actually able to create animated GIFs for your promotion of your YouTube videos. So, first off, you need to select the video that you want to create as an animated GIF. I’m here on Geekify Guys, my other channel, and there is a total wreck that I totally biff it hard on a hover board, so I’m going to show you where that’s at. It is three minutes and 50 seconds, or something like that. Check this out, so I’m there, boom! So I want that as an animated GIF, I think it’d grab people’s attention to get them to go.
So the first thing that we need to do is to select the URL. So I’m going to go ahead, select the URL by clicking on the share button and coming down here and selecting that and copying it. The next one is, I’m going to show you three different places to go. The first one is Giphy.com. You’ll come to their website right here and all you need to do is click create. So I’m going to go ahead and click create. And then all you need to do is enter in that URL, so I’m going to go ahead and paste that URL in here. And it’s going to go ahead and load the video, and watch it create the animated GIF. So for this one, we know it’s at 3:50, actually let’s just adjust it this way, it’ll be easier.
Just click on it and hold your mouse down and right there, you’ll see. Boom! That hurt. It really did (laughs). Boom! Okay that was a big hit. So its looks pretty good. I like that, maybe come back a few seconds so you’re just getting the hit. So you can also add a caption, so down here, go ahead and add a caption. Epic Fail, actually Epic Fall, how about just Epic. Okay there we go. Add a caption, you can choose the style where it’s default, meme style, I like the meme one. You can even choose colors on it.
I’m going to keep it white and you can click on this, hold it down, and you can adjust it, so I’m going to go ahead and click that, adjust it, bring it back up a little bit higher, you’re able to see that. Boom! That’s awesome. Okay, so that’s the first one, then after you’re done, go ahead and create a GIF and then you’re able to download it. The next one I really, really like is Gif.com, Gifs.com I guess. You come here, what we want to do is paste that URL in again. And this one gives you a lot more options: you can add a sticker, but let’s go ahead and you can select your time first. So let’s go ahead and do that. And then we just click on this and adjust this where we want it. So you can see that, how simple this really is. It is so nice. So I’m going to go ahead and add a sticker on it, I’m going to go ahead and So you can add stickers on it, you can also add captions, same thing that we did before, but all you have to do is type right on it and you can just select it, come down, if I want it a little bit bigger you can just click on it and pull it a little bit bigger.
You can crop it or you can do some padding there, whatever it may be, it’s really, really nice. You can flip it around; add multiple captions on it, so if you want something smaller you can do that. Epic…fall. So really, really easy to do that, you can change your font, you can change the type of font, the color, and your alignment. Really nice. Go ahead and create a GIF. You do need to create an account for both of these. If you don’t have one, it’s really nice and it’s really easy to set up as well.
Now the last way is not even leaving YouTube. All you’ve got to be is in your video manager, really simple, only if you have Tube Buddy, and you can get your plug-in at TubeBuddy.com/go. Once you have that and install that plug-in I can come here and click on that, come down to animated GIF generator and we’re able to adjust it, so let me go ahead and put it where the fall’s at, so I like it about right there. Really simple, you can see the preview of that. That right there is really easy, just kind of adjust the green and the red, greens where you want it to start, where you want it to stop. We can also add text in this. And it automatically selects the time when it’s going to do it, so we’re just going to do Epic again.
We want it to be extra-large, white, and we want it bold of course. I’m going to go ahead and hit add, and you can just kind of put in the thing there, just kind of click on it, move it around. I’m going to go ahead and click on the bounding box here. Hold down your mouse and make it smaller or bigger, and I like that for sure. And all you’ve got to do is hit generate GIF. So it’s just going to take a second to render. Now that you have it here, you can click the download button, post it to Pinterest or add it to Twitter if you’re connected with a Twitter account, or create another GIF. I’m going to go ahead and just hit download, and I actually have that to use. Now that I showed you how to create those animated GIFS for YouTube videos, it’s time for the contest. It’s going to be awesome.
Now, I am going to give away a one-on-one private consultation for the person that can make me laugh the most… (laughing) with an animated GIF of course. So here are the rules: you’ve got to follow me on Twitter, that’s pretty easy, right? Now, the second one is a little bit more difficult, You’ve got to use your skills that I actually taught you how to create those animated GIFS for your videos, and you have to make an animated GIF of me thoughts. That’s going to be a fun one to read as well. Thank you so much guys for coming on and reading this article. If you haven’t subscribed yet, go ahead and subscribe and read article.
