HOW TO CREATE A GIF IN CANVA


In this Canva tutorial, I’m going to show
you how to create a gif in Canva, so that you can easily animate your graphics with
the Canva animation tool. If you don’t have a Canva account yet, click

need a Canva For Work account, which is Canva’s premium service that costs $12.95 per month,
when paid month to month, or $9.95 per month, when paid annually. One of the advantages of having a Canva For
Work account over a regular Canva account is that it has its own built-in gif maker
that you can use even if you’re not design-savvy. You can try Canva For Work free for 30 days. Again, the link to Canva For Work is in the
description box below. Alright, so to create a gif in Canva For Work,
you’ll want to start by choosing one of Canva’s pre-set templates in the dimensions
of your liking, such as a Facebook post. Now customize your image by adding any element
of your choice, such as text and an image. For instance, say that I want to promote my
latest video, and want to get more people to watch it. I’ll go ahead and add a bit of text that
says ‘watch my latest video now!’ and add an image of my video. To download this image we just created as
a gif, you’ll go ahead and click on the arrow in the top, right-hand corner, right
next to where it says ‘publish to Facebook’, and click on ‘animation’. Now choose the animation style of your choice
from these seven options: fade, pan, block, rise, breathe, slide and simple. So let’s say we want our design to have
the slide animation, so we’ll go ahead and click on that. Okay, so lastly, to download this image as
a gif, we’ll change the file format from ‘movie’ to ‘animated gif’, and then
press ‘download’. But before we do that and download our gif,
here’s another cool thing we can do when creating a gif in Canva: we can add multiple
pages to make an element, like the text flash, to call more attention to our gif. Let me show you what I mean. So let’s make two additional copies of the
design we just created, by clicking on the copy page button on the top-right of our design. Now as you can see, we have three pages. We’ll leave the text on the first page this
black color. On the second page, let’s change the text
to yellow, and on the third page, let’s change it to grey. Now to make the text flash in our gif, let’s
click on the arrow on the top, right-hand corner, then on ‘animation’, and select
the ‘simple’ animation style with ‘fast’ timing. As you can see in the preview, our gif now
has flashing text in multiple colors. To download this image as a gif, we’ll change
the file format from ‘movie’ to ‘animated gif’, and then press ‘download’. And that’s it! Now you know how to create a gif in Canva,
so that you can easily animate your graphics with the Canva animation tool. Again, if you don’t have a Canva account
