If you're subscribed to any of our subscription plans, you'll be able to create GIF animations!

Just note that our designers do not specialize in animation; while they can create simple GIF animations, they cannot accommodate complex animation requests.

Refer to the list below as a guide:

Simple GIF animation:

  • Sliding/Scrolling

  • Floating

  • Glowing

  • Bouncing

  • Zoom In / Out

  • Object Panning

  • Blinking

  • Change in Opacity / Fading

  • Change in Color

  • Simple frame by frame animation (limited number of frames & not exceeding 10 seconds)

  • Resizing or cropping existing GIF files

Complex GIF animation:

  • Infographic animation

  • 3D effects

  • Detailed character walk cycle

  • Animation for video/movies or cartoons

  • Converting of video file formats (mov, flv, wmv, mp4 etc.) to GIF and adding text

  • Multi-frame (complex) and Long GIFs (over 10 seconds)

  • Any other complex animations or effects

Other things to consider:

  • Color mode will be in RGB Format

  • Not exceeding 1MB file size

  • Recommended dimension: Max of 500px across

  • Delivery format will be in .GIF or .MP4 format

    • + Canva for Premium subscribers
