How to make a gif:

  1. Take a short video of yourself. This can be a boomerang or a five second long video. Sometimes I’ll create mine in our Instagram stories so that I can use a filter.
  2. Go to and click “upload clip”.
  3. Select your clip from your camera roll and hit choose.
  4. Once your clip is finished uploading click the blue download button below your gif clip.
  5. Select download clip and then tap on the top right drop down arrow to view your downloaded clip.
  6. You can either save video or copy. I do both.
  7. Saving the clip will save it to your camera roll. Copying the clip will allow you to add it to your Instagram stories.
  8. Once you hit copy open your Instagram app and upload a story. Upload a story, video, or screenshot.
  9. After that, tap on the font/type Aa button and hit paste!
