Want to create your own GIF's with photos from your device?

If you would like to create your own GIF from some of your own photos - I am sharing what I just did in a couple of minutes (animation below).
  1. I asked my two children (Jack and Sydney) to jump up and down.
  2. While they did I held down the "button" to take photos on my iPhone (this created a burst of images).
  3. I then uploaded the images to Google Photos (remember unlimited storage space for photos and videos - click here for a post I created in May of 2016).
  4. I then selected photos (bottom of Google Photos on my phone) and selected the first picture in the burst. You can tell it is a burst of images by looking in upper-right of photo.
  5. Once selected - I selected the middle button (on bottom) which asked me to:
    1. Keep only this photo
    2. Create animation
  6. I selected create animation and voila - I now have my animation (GIF) that I can share with others.
    1. To share select the share button (bottom left square and up arrow) and then share as you like. I chose save video (bottom right).
Embedded below is a GIF followed by a 1 minute and 26 second YouTube tutorial I created (apologies as I created this tutorial on my phone as my MAC is in the shop getting fixed).
