Tap on Next.
Edit your GIF
You can change the speed of the GIF, and change whether it loops forward, in reverse, or Yoyo.
Remove single frames by tapping on the image and then on the x. Tap Save and you’re done! The GIF will begin uploading and you’ll be able to share it for everyone to see!
GIF Upload Settings
After you create your first GIF, you’ll be asked to save your GIF Upload Settings. All created GIFs will be saved in an album titled “Your GIFs”.
In your GIF Upload Settings, you can choose to make your GIF album private or public, and whether to share your GIFs with Photobucket with the #pbGIFs hashtag.
