Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. What is GIF Maker?

    GIF Maker is a lite and multi-browser add-on that enables you to create GIF files easily inside your browser. As the source for the GIF file, this app needs some images or a video file. Once one of these inputs is provided, you can click on the - Make GIF - button to create the GIF file. Please note that, before making the GIF image, there are several settings that you can adjust. If you want to save the GIF file to your machine, please click on the - Download button. The file will be saved to the default download location on your machine. On the top right corner of the UI, there is a reload button to reload the app (in case something goes wrong or an error occurs). Please note that the default size for the GIF image is (300 x 300) pixels, however, you can edit this value from the UI.

  • 2. How can I work with GIF Maker add-on?

    To work with this addon, simply click on the toolbar button to open the app UI. Then, drag and drop desired images (at least two) in the designated area in the app (top section). Please note that you can either use images or a video file to make a GIF file. Once input files are imported, please adjust the settings for each GIF image. Settings are available in the app at the right sidebar. Currently, there are 17 options to adjust and all of them are self-explanatory. Once the settings are adjusted, please click on the - Make GIF - button to generate the GIF image. Depending on the input source, the time to make the resulting GIF may vary. Please wait for the app to finish the job; once done, you can see the resulting GIF image in the app UI. Now, you can click on the - Download - button to save the GIF image to your machine. As mentioned above, the download location is the default download path on your machine. This app does NOT need an internet connection to work; it uses an open-source JavaScript API which is very lite and fast to make GIF files inside your browser.

  • 3. What is behind the GIF Maker addon?

    as mentioned above this addon uses an opensource JavaScript library called gifshot to make the GIF file.
