TikTok makes it easy for you to turn a video into a GIF.
Gone are the days of screen recording a video on your phone and uploading it to a sketchy GIF-making website, choosing the start and end times, adjusting the frame rate, blah blah blah you know the struggle. Making GIFs can be a huge pain.
GIFing on TikTok is refreshingly easy, and only takes a few taps. Here’s how to do it.
