How to use VEED’s GIF Combiner In Seconds
Step 1: Go to VEED and upload the GIF file you want to edit
Note: If you want to save your project or start additional projects and drafts, you can always create a free account with VEED.
You can also upload video clips in different file formats to export and turn them into GIFs.
You have multiple options to upload your GIF files from:
- Your local files
- YouTube (just enter the link)
- Your webcam
Step 2: Upload the second GIF file in the GIF combiner
You can upload the second GIF to be combined with the first one by clicking the “+” button on the right side of the GIF timeline.
After the second GIF is uploaded, you will be able to see the two GIF files next to each other.
Step 3 (optional): Upload additional GIF files in the GIF combiner
You can upload additional GIF files by clicking on the “Add Video” button above the timeline. Or, you could click on the “+” button to the right of the GIF timeline, just like you did before.
Pro tip: Click on the GIF to select it. Then, click on the “+” button to upload a new GIF; it will be inserted after the selected GIF.
Step 4 (optional): Break GIFs into frames
After you have combined your GIFs, you can go back to break them into frames again. Grab and drag the playhead (the vertical blue line across the timeline) to where you wish the GIF to be split. Then, click on “split” right above the timeline.
Shortcut tip: Select a GIF part and hit “S” on the keyboard to split the GIF at the very moment your playhead is at.
Step 5 (optional): Rearrange the GIFs
Once you upload a few GIFs to combine them into one, you can adjust their order. Just click and drag the GIF part to move it before or after other GIFs.
Step 6 (optional): Trim different GIF segments
You can edit the length of each of the GIF segments you wish to combine into one. Simply select the segment and then drag it by the white handles that will show up on both sides of the GIF.
Step 7 (optional): Merge the GIF segments back together
Once you edit all the GIF segments you wish to combine, you will see an empty gap on the timeline. We want to avoid that, as it would appear as black screen when the GIF is played.
Select a GIF segment and drag it to appear right next to the first one. Now, the separate GIFs are successfully combined into one and will play right after each other.
Step 8 (optional): Delete parts
If you have changed your mind and would like to delete a GIF segment, you can do so.
Select the segment, right-click on it, and then choose the “Delete” option in the menu.
Shortcut tip: Select the GIF segment and press “Delete” key on the keyboard to get rid of it.
If you have deleted a GIF by accident, you can always hit “undo” (the curved left arrow in the top-right of the screen).
Step 9: Download the GIF file
Once the multiple GIFs are combined into one, click on the Export button located in the top right corner of the screen.
After a few seconds, the GIF will be rendered, and you will be able to download it as GIF.
Congratulations, now you know how to effectively use VEED's GIF combiner!
