How to Make a GIF from YouTube
We watch YouTube video every day, and we can convert YouTube to MP3 or make money on YouTube. Of course, we can convert YouTube to GIF as long as we turn to a professional GIF maker. There are several video to GIF apps and websites that’ll let you create GIF from YouTube. Here, we take 2 tools for example.

Using Giphy
Giphy, a super quick and easy to use GIF maker, is recommended here. It supports YouTube and Vimeo links, and allows you to create GIFs from photos. Like MiniTool Movie Maker, it lets you add captions to customize your GIF.

Here is the step by step tutorial:

Step 1: Paste URL of YouTube video

Open Giphy.com’s GIF maker. You have 3 options.

Choose photo or GIF: you can add multiple images to create a GIF slideshow.
Choose video: trim your video into a GIF then add captions or stickers.
Add any URL: it supports YouTube, video and GIPHY links.
Copy the YouTube URL you want to make a GIF from.

Paste your YouTube URL into the input box at the base of the page.

Step 2: Customize your GIF video

Trim video: Use the sliders to select Start Time and Duration (or use your arrow keys to get really precise).

Decorate your GIF from YouTube video: This GIF maker offers a variety of options to help you decorate GIF. For instance, you are able to add caption, or jazz up the GIF with stickers, filters, or even hand-drawn annotations.

Step 3: Add hashtags to your GIF

If you want people to find your GIF and share it widely, you can add hashtags. Think of what you would search for if you were trying to find this GIF in a hurry. For instance, you are able to add your brand name and some common related terms in your list so it’s easily searchable.

Step 4: Download and share GIF

Once you have customized your GIF video, you can click Upload to GIPHY to convert your video to GIF. After the GIF has been created, you can now use the available links to download your new GIF, copy it, embed it on a website, and more! Then, it’s probably time to share it with your friends.
