The Phases of Creating a GIF


There are two main options when it comes to creating a GIF on Canva.


If you are completely green to Canva, read my blog on how to get started with Canva as this will guide you through the basics.


You can start with the basics, which is in essence a picture/ photograph that is a moving element.


Or, you can upload a video and transform that into a GIF as a slightly more advanced option.



Option 1


The basic GIF on Canva


  1. Sign in to Canva,

  2. Identify the template that you would like to work with. Personally, I find that using an animated social media template can very helpful,

  3. Create your design,

  4. Click on the download feature and select the option "Download as a GIF short clip- No Sound"

Option 2


The video GIF on Canva


  1. Sign in to Canva,

  2. Identify the template that you would like to work with. Personally, I find that using an animated social media template can very helpful,

  3. Upload your video to Canva,

  4. Create your design,

  5. Add your video to your design,

  6. Crop your video using the "crop" icon,

  7. Click on the download feature and select the option "Download as a GIF short clip- No Sound"

Final Thoughts


As you can see, there is no big difference between options 1 and 2.


The only difference is that you have to upload a video file in option 2.


I hope you have found these steps helpful.


All the best with creating your GIFs on Canva.
