World's simplest gif tool

This online utility lets you add any text to a GIF animation. You can add captions, subtitles, annotations, symbols, and emojis to a GIF.

Text to gif adder tool What is a text to gif adder?
This browser-based program overlays text on top of animated and static GIF files. The text can be as short as one symbol (such as a Unicode emoji) or a short one-word label, it can be a multi-word caption, it can be one or more sentences (an annotation), or even multiple text paragraphs. When you enter the input text in the options, it will be placed as the top layer above all GIF frames. The entered text will immediately appear on all frames but if you need to place it on specific frames, you can list the frame numbers in the options. For example, like this: "1, 3" (add text only on frames 1 and 3), like this: "4-9" (add text on frames 4 to 9), or like this: "3, 5, 10-20" (add text on frames 3, 5, and frames 10 to 20). The position of the text area can be adjusted in the GIF preview field with the mouse or specified in the options using four parameters: x, y, width, height. The text area can be fully transparent, it can be filled with a solid color, or it can be made semi-transparent. By default, the input text appears in the center of the text box but you can align it to the left or right if needed. You can also adjust the text style by choosing the font family from a list of suggested fonts or enter a custom typeface using the font URL option. There are also more options to set the character size, the line height, the text paint color, add a shadow to it, and make it bold or italic. As you make changes to the text, you can observe the output GIF in the continuous animation mode or in the stop-frame mode. Once you finish placing the text, you can download the animation from the output animation area. Gifabulous!

Add a Location Label to a GIF
In this example, we add a caption "Machu Picchu" (location of the Inca citadel) to an animated GIF file. We place the caption at the bottom of the animation and stretch the text box to the width of a frame. We make it semi-transparent (color rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6)), use a 20px Helvetica font for the text, and paint it in green (color rgb(82, 248, 84)). (Source: Pexels.)

Add a Quote to an Animation
In this example, we write an inspirational quote over a calming sunset animation. We align the text to the left and fill the text box with transparency. We select the custom font mode and paste a URL to the Google font called "Satisfy". The color of the text is white and to make it stand out better, we add a shadow to it with the format "2px 2px 2px black". As there are two lines of text, we increase the line height to 30 pixels. For an even better look, we make the text italic. (Source: Pexels.)

Special Attack Instructions
In this Street Fighter sprite, the Guile game character is releasing the Sonic Boom special attack. This attack can be released by charging backward, pressing forward, and pressing the punch key. To teach you how to invoke this attack, we add keystroke instructions to the first three frames of the animation. We use different Unicode characters, letters, and emoticons to show the instructions and print them in bold using the Courier New font. (Source: Capcom.)

Semi-transparent Overlay
In this example, we add an empty text box to a GIF animation of a lavender plantation. We outline a 378 by 190 rectangular box and put it at the position (26, 26). We make the text box semi-transparent by filling its background with an RGBA color with the alpha channel of 0.2. As there's no text given, the entire text box is see-through and it creates a nice overlay effect. (Source: Pexels.)

Cover an Animation with Dots
In this example, we use the regular full stop characters to create an unusual digital dot effect on a GIF animation. We cover the entire frame area with white dots having 10% transparency (α = 0.9). We use the browser's default monospace font with a size of 24 pixels and a line height of 16 pixels. (Source: Pexels.)

Add Emojis to a GIF
