How to Make a GIF

Want to learn how to make a GIF? Here's how!

First, you need to figure out what you are going to make your GIF of. I designed the "How to make a GIF" GIF above on PicMonkey. You can make your own, or take pictures. Here's an example of one I made of Selah:
Go to Hover your mouse over "Generators" and click "Animated GIF Editor." Enter you dimensions of your picture. Click "Add", ctrl-click your pictures, and click "Upload." After they upload, drag them to make them in the right order.
I found the default setting, 500ms, is the perfect duration for these pictures. You can change it if you want it to go faster or slower. Now click submit. You have to wait a little to for it to load, but they let you play "Simon" while you wait. Just be prepared to be interrupted in the middle of your game. If you are not happy with the results, they allow you to go back and edit it. If you like the way it looks, click "upload" and save it to your computer!
