I've been making GIFs for years, but it has always been a bit of a struggle. There was never a really easy way for anyone to make one. But recently I found a new workflow that makes it really easy to make one. No downloading. No apps. No registration. All done just using two freely available websites.
So here's how it's done.
Step 1. I find the best Wolves highlights are usually at NBA.com. All their video is also put up on their Youtube channel. So first you find the clip or video you want to pull a GIF from on youtube.
Step 2. The real thing that makes this work is this site I found. I am not associated with this site or anything but I've used a lot of these and they always kind of sucked. This one actually works quick and clear. I don't think I can put URLs in here but the site is yt2gif . com. I guess it stands for youtube 2 gif. You get the url of the youtube video you want and put it in the yt2gif site and then set the beginning and duration of the gif and it pumps it out in a few seconds. It is pretty good. The default settings seem good.
Step 3. It will open up the gif on a web hosting site called imgur or something like that? Anyway, you can either just right click and save the gif to your computer at that moment or use the url where the gif is to put it in a Fanpost or whatever. Easy peasy .
Lets get gifin'. Go Wolves!
