    Convert YouTube to GIF Free in 3 Simple Steps

    Unless you are living in the pre-internet era, you must have come across GIFs, the short video clips that often run on an endless loop. With the internet now accessible to a majority of the population on planet Earth, GIFs have increased in terms of popularity, often finding their way on emails as well as personal and work chats.

    If you want to make a GIF from any YouTube video, here are some platforms that are free to use and don’t require any special knowledge. Most of these tools require you to copy the URL of the YouTube video you want to convert to GIF.

    GIPHY is one of the most popular websites on the internet that lets you convert videos from YouTube and Vimeo into GIFs. Apart from videos, you can also make GIFs and stickers from photos. While the service is free to use, it requires users to sign up using their email ID.

    1. Head over to the GIPHY website and tap on the ‘Create’ button that appears at the top right.

    2. On the page that loads, paste the URL of the YouTube video you just copied and hit enter.

    3. Now, a new window will appear where you will be able to trim the video and choose which part you want to convert to a GIF.

    4. Click on the ‘Continue’ button and wait for some time for the conversion to complete.

    5. You can also choose to make it loop normally or reverse and add effects of your choice.

    6. Once done, press on the ‘Continue to Upload’ or ‘Download’ button, following which a new screen will appear where you will be able to add tags, source URL and choose to add the GIF to your collection.

    In case you don’t want to go through the hassle of creating an account just to make a GIF, try GifRun.

    1. To make a GIF using the free-to-use service, head over to Gifrun.com and paste the YouTube video link on the top bar.

    2. On the page that loads, press the ‘Create GIF’ button on the right half and wait for some time.

    3. When done, choose the width and the frame rate of the newly generated GIF and customise it by adding text and you will be able to download it from the same window.

    4. For those who want to change the speed and loop type, Gifrun requires users to sign up for a free account.

    Don’t want to use websites to make a GIF? Try GIFit!, a free-to-use extension that works with Chromium-based browsers like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. This is probably the fastest and best way to create GIFs from YouTube, but the customisation options are pretty much limited.

    1. Once you download and install the plug-in, just open the YouTube video you want to turn to GIF from and you will see the GIFit! button at the bottom right of the fullscreen button.

    2. Choose the starting and ending point, width and height of the GIF, the frame rate and the quality of the GIF.

    3. When done, tap on the red ‘GIFit!’ button, wait for a few seconds and you will get the option to download the newly generated GIF on the same screen.
