This tutorial explains how to make an animated gif from a video. It is written for people with a basic understanding of Photoshop and its tools. You will need Photoshop CS or higher and Quicktime.
Saving a Video:
First, you need have a video! If you don’t already have one saved, you can download straight from YouTube. There are several sites that allow you to do this. I normally use Savevid.com. Simply copy the YouTube URL, paste it into the box on SaveVid and hit download.
You’ll need to download an MP4 of the video. If you want a better quality gif, download one of the HD videos. They’re usually bigger files so they’ll take longer to download but it’s worth it! Once you saved your video you’re ready to make a gif!
Making the gif
