Making your own animated GIFs and sharing them right away is incredibly easy on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8.
To create animated GIFs from photos in the camera, you can choose Animated GIF mode to automatically create an animated GIF of a sequence of photos taken in burst mode.* Or, after taking photos in burst mode, first tap the photo burst in the gallery, tap the icon in the middle to see the photo sequence, then tap Animate from the menu in the upper right corner to turn it into an animated GIF file.
To create GIFs from a video you have taken, go to gallery and use Smart select to easily select the section of the video you want and turn it into animated GIF and save. You can also create animated GIFs from videos online by using the same method. To create an animated GIF straight from the Galaxy S8 camera, open the camera, swipe open the Edge panel and select animated GIF from the top menu that shows in Smart select. On Galaxy Note8, open the camera, take out the S Pen, tap Smart select and choose animated GIF.
*Animated GIF mode may need to be downloaded separately.
