Now however, Samsung has taken it to the next level by making it easy for anyone to make an animated screenshot, also known as a GIF.
In this tutorial I will show you how you can easily make a GIF from anything that happens on your new phones screen.
How to make a GIF on the Galaxy S8 and S8 plus
- Pull in the EDGE panel from the side of your phone.
- Swipe over to the third tab (default placement as long as you did not change it)
- Press the ” GIF animation ” button.
- Press record to capture a GIF of what is happening on your phone’s screen.
If you don’t have the tab on the side of your screen you can turn it on by going to Settings – Display – Edge screen
The GIF feature is something that you can use to capture anything that happens on your screen. I found that the coolest thing was to use it together with the camera app to make GIFs from anything that happens around me. Simply start your camera app and follow the instructions from above to make animations from your surroundings.
The window can be resized by pulling on one of it’s corners and you can also lower the quality by pressing the quality pull down ( Just press where it says ” high quality ” and change it to normal )
If you change your mind the window can be closed by pressing the ” x ” in the upper right corner.
