GIF Creation Best Practices & Tips

Here are some best practices for making personalized GIFs:

  1. GIFs are limited to 15 seconds, but you should make your custom GIFs shorter, ideally at 6 seconds or less.
  2. Remember: longer GIFs take more time to load, so keep in mind that GIF media will be appearing on smaller screens like mobile phones.
  3. Practice acting out your GIF in front of a mirror before recording it. You can also record multiple takes in one tape and we will simply trim out the best one for you!
  4. Avoid super fast movements or gestures as they can be hard to capture.

Our panel of judges like to feature candid and natural moments from your tapes, but if there's a GIF you're just dying to customize, record your tape on TapeReal with the hashtag #putmeongiphy and we'll let you know when your personalized GIF is ready to use! ;-)

In the meantime, happy taping and stay tuned for new and exciting ways to express yourself using TapeReal!
