Omg I saw the newest episode of TTG; I almost screamed out loud!!! THEY USED THE ORIGINAL OMGGGGGGG SO AWESOME!!!! PLZZZZ MOARRRR!!
(( SOMEONE TELL US!!!!!!))
I WANT TO KNOWWWWWW
I KNOW HOW!
Ok, step 1: find the moment you want to GIF
Ok, step 2: put the episode or movie into a program that can crop the videos down to just your clip and also set a frame rate for the clip. Windows Movie Maker is simple and works fine.
Ok, step 3: crop your video down to the clip you want. Add subtitles if you want them.
Ok, step 4: go to “Save Movie” and scroll down to “Create Custom Setting.” The only thing you need to change here is the frame rate. Pick what you think will be best (usually no more than 15FPS for GIFS) and save the setting.
Ok, step 5: go to “Save Movie” and choose the setting you just created. Save the file.
This next part is the MOST IMPORTANT!!!
Ok, step 6: open Photoshop.
Ok, step 7: click “File” then “Import” and select “Video Frame to layers.” In the pop up window, find the video clip you just made, and select it. Click Ok on the next pop up window that comes up, you don’t need to change anything.
Now your clip is showing up as a bunch of layers! What do?
Ok, step 8: go up to the top little tab that says “Window.” Click on the “Timeline” option. This will show all your layers as frames of an animation.
Ok, step 9: want to cut out a few frames? Select the layer that it is on and delete it. Now, at the bottom in the “Timeline” bar, there will be a blank frame. Select that frame.
Ok, step 10: Click on the little arrow in the top right of the “Timeline” bar. Click “Delete Frame”
Your clip is the perfect moment you wanted! Now what?
Ok, step 11: click “File” then choose “Save for Web.” It should already be set to save as a GIF. If not, select it from the drop-down menu.
Ok, step 12: In the save menu for “Image Size,” you must set it under 500 pixels. Tumblr will not accept anything over 500. For safety, just set it to 450. It also must be under 1MB. so, if the file is over 1MB, you will have to make it smaller, or reduce the colors (the option to do that is in the box marked “Colors” in the same window.) If a dither (under the “Colors” box) is preset, set it to “No Dither.”
Ok, step 13: once you’ve set it to what you want, press save!
Now you have a GIF!! Upload it to Tumblr and pray to God that it has no issues uploading! (Tumblr is notorious for being picky about GIFs.)
