I created this animated GIF of a puppy using Adobe Photoshop. The original video can be found here.

I made this GIF using Adobe Photoshop. Who doesn't love a cute puppy? Social media is full of GIFs, so it's important to know what they are and how to make them. People can use GIFs to:

  • Express themselves further than a photo
  • Relive the best or funniest parts of a video
  • Create a fun, interactive atmosphere on their personal sites
To show how prevalent GIFs are for social media, apps like GroupMe and Twitter have installed GIF keyboards for users to post GIFs as responses to messages. Apple has also taken a similar approach and installed a GIF keyboard into the new iOS 10 update.
