How to add text to GIF online

GIFs got an essential part of content that is posted everywhere on the internet. Your domain doesn’t matter – having a creative approach to what you are doing will help to adapt such a form of content to this domain. If you are making them you know that it doesn’t take much time and you are free to play with them in any way you like. For all the types of GIFs Pixiko has a tools’ kit.

For all the ways of using GIFs one of the most popular tools is adding text to a GIF because with it you can make memes, share different information with your followers and customers. A basic tools’ kit for you is to cut a chosen part or parts, join them, add a text, put it on music and resize it. Ready! Your GIF is ready to be posted on the social media you would like to. Or you can also place it as a banner on your website. 

Whether you have an experience with GIFs making or not you know for sure that it’s not enough just to cut a fragment of a video and post it somewhere.

What is it used for?

The next point is GIFs usage for the commercial design of a brand profile. Here we mean GIFs as a part of the whole image that you are creating for your brand (feed on Instagram, Facebook). With the help of them you may show elements of a new collection, sets of examples with your goods to show your customers how they can utilize them. In a short, make useful content that attracts attention to your brand. Vivid informative GIFs may be posted to announce about sales, special offers or just as advertisement in Stories, for example.
