Gifs.com is a gif creation tool that lets you utilize clips from YouTube videos.
Whether you like them or not, it’s undeniable that gifs have emerged as one of the leading ways to communicate online. A simple gif of a character from a TV show reacting to something can say more than your own words ever could. There are plenty of gif creation tools on the web, but none have as clever of a domain as Gifs.com. There is, of course, more to the site than just its name. Gifs.com is a rare site that lets you convert clips from YouTube videos into gifs. The entire process is incredibly simple. All you have to do is paste a YouTube clip, do a bit of editing, and then share or embed your gif wherever you like.
The editing process on Gifs.com is incredibly simple to figure out. In order to create a gif, all you have to do is move the slider to the start and finish points of the video that you want to use. You can also add a caption. The gif is created relatively quickly, and is easily sharable across all your social media networks. One of the cooler features is that Gifs.com’s gif player can include links back to any site you want. If you want to promote your blog or social media profile, it’s easy to credit yourself for the creation of the gif with a link.
