An Essential GIF Editor App

Communicating with GIFs is on the rise, not only as memes on social media but
to empower training materials, tutorials and marketing content too. Animated
GIFs with loops of repeating frames provide a perfect medium between videos and
images to convey your marketing message or to make someone understand a complex
idea. CloudApp is an essential GIF editor app that simplifies online GIF creation and makes it a breeze to edit and share animated GIFs across multiple platforms. Whether you are in marketing, product or design, our GIF editor will allow you to communicate more efficiently and accelerate your workflow. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of GIFs in today’s world.

Benefits of Communicating with GIFs

  • GIFs are more powerful in their impact than images because they are short loopable videos
  • They are a perfect tool when an image does not do the job and a video is too heavy on a web page’s performance.
  • GIFs have a much smaller size than videos due to their encoding but their impact is as strong as that of a video. We recommend GIFs over video as much as possible.
  • One of the biggest tech companies in the world, Dell, saw its revenue touching 109% when it launched a campaign that was based around GIFs. In simple words, GIF serve as one of the best ways for content marketing.

Cisco has predicted 2019 to be the year of visual content, and according to the visual networking index report, by 2019, online video and visual content will be responsible for four-fifths of global Internet traffic. In the US, that number will be 85%. Companies use GIFs more frequently because they are lighter on resources than videos but more narrative than images.

With CloudApp’s GIF editing tool, visual communication is just one of the many benefits for every industry where speed and clarity are essential.

GIF Creation Made Simple

One of the issues with GIF creation in the past was the
difficulty that one had to face. There are still online guides from a few years
back that show you five, six or seven easy ways to create GIFs. However, making
a video or taking a snapshot is still much easier than creating a GIF despite
those easy steps. You can now find a GIF editor online that will do the job but
make the creation process a headache. 

With the GIF creator app, you can quickly create GIFs of digestible content, annotate or embed them, and save them to the cloud. CloudApp will help you with
GIF creation and editing like no other app out there.

CloudApp lets you create your GIFs effortlessly. You

  • Probably the fastest GIF editor when it comes to
    sharing. It creates a link for you to share across numerous platforms as soon
