How To Animate Your Avon Images!
Want to take your images to the next level and get your customers attention?
How about posting your very own custom Gifs!
So what exactly is a gif? It’s simply an image file that supports animated images.
Simply put a .gif is sort of like a slide show. Gifs have become very popular on social media because the movement in the image draws more attention to the post.
This is great way to promote your Avon products, and creating your own custom gifs is fairly simple. All you’re doing is adding a couple or a series of images to a file to create a 1 minute or less slideshow.
Creating your own custom .gifs to promote your Avon business or products is easy and even easier when created through the FREE GIPHY app.
Here are couple of “GIPHY’S” I created with the app.
These literally took only a few minutes to make!
So are you ready to get creative and give this a try? Here’s how to make your own animated gifs!
First you’ll need to either download or create a couple of images for your animation. Quick Note: It might be easier and you might have more success if you use a desktop or laptop rather than a mobile device.
You can use product images from your Avon eStore, pictures you’ve taken yourself or even create your own images just using words. The possibilities are only limited to your imagination.
Once you create your images then all you do is upload them to the “GIPHY” app and you instantly have an animate GIF to share on your social media profiles!
Just upload your slides to Giphy.com
Giphy is super easy to use and creating a custom animation can be done in just a few easy steps!
1) First you’ll need to CREATE AN ACCOUNT over at www.Giphy.com
2) Then click the CREATE BUTTON at the top of the page.
3) Select the CHOOSE PHOTO OR GIF option to upload your images into the app.
4) Adjust Settings Once you select your images from your drive you’ll be taken to the next screen:
A. Adjust the image duration
I usually use 0.5 seconds if I have several image slides. But if I have let’s say a quote, I might allow a longer time frame. It’s a matter of preference so just play around with it to see what works best for your image.
One thing to keep in mind, Gifphy’s have a time limitation so the more slides you have the shorter time frame you’ll need to choose in order for the slides to stay within the time limitation. That you’ll also have to play around with to see what works best.
B. How To Add More Images To Your Animation
If you want to add more images then just click the Browse Files button.
