Hire GIF Animators

An animator is an artist who gives the illusion of movement by combining different images. These images can be hand-drawn pictures, digital images, models and puppets. Animators also create GIF animation - an image encoded in graphics interchange format (GIF), which contains a number of images or frames in a single file and is described by its own graphics control extension. These animators are known as GIF Animators.

What Do GIF Animators Do?

A GIF animator infuses life in images by giving the illusion of movement. They take an image and cram a set of frames into a single file for sequential playback. GIF Animators create special effects, animation or other visual images using computers based technologies.

Animated GIFs are ideal for presenting dynamic or moving content. Their average length is between 10 to 15 seconds and can also be made from still images. GIFs are different from JPEG image formats as it does not lower the quality of the image.

Animated GIFS are usually seen on websites, advertisements, email marketing or simple DIY demos—anywhere where a static image won't do the trick. A GIF animator also designs animated GIFs for enhancing product illustrations, providing visual instructions and demonstrating user experience.
