GIFs: Make Your Own Shareable Images for Social Media

Animated GIFs, those little moving images that play in a loop for a few seconds: Spin a puppy in a bowl and you have an instantly shareable social media post.

It’s easier than you think, using one of several free tools to capture a video image you shoot and convert it to a GIF. If you can get past the puppy, the infographic below from WhoIsHostingThis.com lays out your options.
