Share on

Why bother watching a whole video clip when you can simply cut out the good parts and put them in a GIF to share around? A new tool for doing just that has surfaced and made it super easy to turn a YouTube video into a GIF in just 6 east steps.

6 Steps to That Awesome YouTube GIF

Step 1: Go to www.gifyoutube.com and paste the URL to your video into the box and click “Create GIF”. Or for the super lazy, go to the video page for the video you want to turn into a GIF and just add gif before youtube in the URL. At this point the video loads in their handy dandy GIF making tool, i.e:

Step 2: Select the start point of the GIF by sliding the play bar to the desired start point.

Step 3: Select the duration from the dropdown box. 5 Seconds is plenty, this isn’t a Vine here. :-)

Step 6: Share the link!
