Google Tips & Tricks: Turn a YouTube Video into a GIF!
Animated GIF images are so much fun, and can make it really easy to show students and teachers how to do things. This is an easy trick using a tool called GIFYT. Simply type the letters GIF after www., and before youtube, and you will be directed to the site to create our GIF. These GIFs can be up to 15 seconds long, and you can select the exact portion of the video you wish to use. See the example and steps below.
Step 1: Using your browser, locate the video on YouTube that you wish to convert to an animated gif image.
Step 2: Type, “gif” between the “www.” and “youtube” portion of the URL (see below).
