Ok so im gonna explain how I make the gifs I make for you guys in my Request a gif threads. 

There are probally alot of ways to do this but with my method you wont need photoshop or any program or download / account so thats pretty easy and handy imo.

If you want to make a gif yourself and you got a question please read the entire post 1st before you ask a question if you do have a question afterwards please ask in this thread and not in a pm mail so others can learn aswell. ( but dont be afraid to ask ill glady answer it)

Step 1     Choosing your gif

This step is the hardest part I always use 3 options        1. Giphy               2. Tumblr            3. Youtube / converter 

For this example I will use the keyword : car

As I said this is the hardest part : Ill give some tips what to type  -  car - action - forest - nature - animated - art -  a movie name 

  1. Giphy ---- https://giphy.com/ 


Click in the white box that says @username .. and type car and press enter

      2. Tumblr --- You can make an account here but not really needed so just for example type in google search images - Tumblr car gif

You will get the screen as below once you click on one of the images the gif will begin to play.



      3. Youtube / converter --- If you want to make a gif from a youtube video ( 1 to 10 seconds ) ( I use giphy but you can choose )

Find a video you like and copy the url from above

Go to this site 

https://giphy.com/create/gifmaker

Put the url  in the white box here

You will get this screen  --- it explains itselfs on screen but say if you want to make a gif from 4:30 to 4:40 type in the start time : 4:30 and set duration to 10 seconds then click Continue to Decorate ( blue box below )

Step 2     Puting text ( names ) on it = customize 

If you find a gif you want on Giphy or tumblr simply right click the image and click : copy adress of image ( it may be spelled different because I got dutch version )

you will get for example this

https://78.media.tumblr.com/0f79d68c4d0c4cc6e4ca1a47a3628ad1/tumblr_nkv89faOxy1up0vr5o1_500.gif

(  Note : sometimes when you want to do this with giphy it might download a webp that means you have to click the image with left mouse till you see where it came from or it is a video and then you have to convert it if possible )

Possiblity 1 : Giphy (copy the url from the image in the white box )

Knipsel4.PNG

You will get this screen ( Type ur name here I added and for the rest I think it explains it self you can choose colers and filters etc )

image.png

Possiblity 2 : Online image editor ( Use this when you want other lettertypes or glowing text - a gif inside a name )

https://www.online-image-editor.com/?language=english

You will get this screen  choose from URL and copy the url from ur gif  in the http:// box ( for example https://78.media.tumblr.com/0f79d68c4d0c4cc6e4ca1a47a3628ad1/tumblr_nkv89faOxy1up0vr5o1_500.gif and click upload

  ( dont worry about convert or resize or the adds below )

image.png

Now you will get this screen  ( again now you can choose what you want in the tabs above the picture I will explain how to make a gif inside a name latter )

image.png

Step 3 :   Saving your work 

From giphy when you are done click continue to upload

image.png

Then click Upload to Giphy

image.png

Then you will get this screen now right click the image and choose copy adress of image + you can save the gif on ur pc

image.png

From image editor online : same but make sure when you added your text you click apply ( left down corner in my picture )

( note : this link will be temporary = it will be gone after idk 10 minutes or so either save this image on ur pc or edit this gif in giphy and put a small dot on it so you wont see it then you will get a working link from giphy when you upload )

image.png

Step 4 :   Sometimes the gif can be verry big in size then you need to resize it 

You can use others aswell for this but I use ezgif cause well its ez xD

https://ezgif.com/

Click resize tab copy the url again

image.png

Type in New width a number and in new height a number and then click resize image below and voila. ( again this is a temporary link )

You can also add other things here but you can discover that urself :)  .

Thanks guys !

And for gif inside name 

Example : search in giphy  - fire 

image.png

I want the middle gif so I left clicked it then right click gif select copy adress of image

Go to http://www.online-image-editor.com/?language=english

Click the tab From URL then copy it there click upload

image.png

Then you get this screen 

But you will see this gif will be too small to work with so we are gonna resize it here

image.png

Click resize tab icon then move the resize image slider all the way to the right ( its still not verry big in this case but ok its an example )

image.png

Now click the 2013 tab from above ( the one next to Wizards )

Knipsel23.PNG

Click on image in text icon tab then you will get this screen

image.png

Type ur name in the text box

You can change font = lettertype I use Impact for this because its big letters what you need in this case

Size I use 85 = size of text

I used strokewidth 1 = its a line around the text to give it an edge

If ur happy click apply

image.png

If u clicked apply you will get this

image.png

Right click the gif and click copy adress from image / or save it to ur pc

Im gonna copy the url and go to https://giphy.com/create/gifmaker

Paste the url there

image.png

Im gonna click on the tab Draw  under draw is a circle click it move the slider to 1px (= its a small dot in white now click ur gif somewhere you wont see it but its a change so you can upload it here)

image.png

Click continue to upload at the bottom click upload to Giphy and voila you got a working link

Now again right click the image choose copy adress of image and then you can go to 3d and post the link

I have a 1 stupid question :d:d u make my photo from giphy.com ?
Dont worry its not a stupid question yes I made ur name in giphy ( In giphy its olmost always the same letter type and  + - 5 colours )

For search ----> https://giphy.com/

For edit ----> https://giphy.com/create/gifmaker

The https://www.online-image-editor.com/?language=english is used if you want more lettertypes / glitter effect text / a gif inside a name

But I found the image in tumblr here is the orginal ( dont know exactly what I used for search word here but something like: tumblr space gif

Ye nice work Devil :)  looks good thanks

For the fire one I would choose not to add strokewidth ( so 0 )

And you can play around with the lettertypes ( = font )

For example ( same gif inside name ) /monthly_2017_05/Gif36.gif.3e5bc3e58894e2f7a0693344c11b4253.gif vs 


But for your first try its already verry good !
