Website Feature #3: Photo GIFs
Sure, you tell your friends you’re angry, but if you don’t share a GIF in your text thread to prove it, will they really take you seriously? Not likely. GIFs can add so much personality and flair and showcase your brand. Even the simplest of GIFs can engage your target audience.
There are different ways to create GIFs, but we love using the Frame Animation feature in Photoshop. It doesn’t have to be complex. Simple GIFs using a few photos can create something really fun!
