GIPHY Cam adds new levels to Media Potential

Whether it's spicing up a presentation or movement for a feed, a gif, no matter how it's pronounced, is the way to go, and the way to do it, is with “GIPHY Cam, The GIF Creator.”

With the many choices of filters, stickers, masks and text, a simple gif can be made and edited with the app.

Making a gif is simple and sharing it is easy with GIPHY Cam. The GIF Creator. This free app available on Apple and Android, belongs on your home screen. Gifs can be animated pictures, or short videos that loop automatically.

Once opening the app, it will first ask for access to your camera and your photos to use a video or image that you have already taken. Once that’s out of the way, the creative process has only begun. Whether the image or video is taken in the moment or is stored in memory, there are 11 different categories of stickers, boarders, text options and masks that cover all the bases.

Whether making a meme or being #artsy, every category has a wide range of options to fit the needs of the user. The most pleasing aspect of the app, in addition to the new creative outlet it provides, is how shockingly easy it is to save and share the recently made masterpiece. Saving the gif itself takes less than five seconds. After waiting, the gif can be shared with the press of a button. It can be tweeted it, posted it directly to Instagram, emailed it, or sent it over text instantly.

Adding text comes with lots of font choices and changing the size is made easy with the touch screen of a phone, not a mouse.

The creators of GIPHY Cam obviously realized they were onto something and in addition to GIPHY Cam have created two other gif related apps. GIPHY, Inc.’s other gif-tastic apps include a gif search engine, GIPHY the Search Engine, and augmented reality gif stickers with their app, GIPHY World: AR GIF Stickers.
