We’ve all seen them … those short video clips on social media and elsewhere, which repeat endlessly, and are intended to send a message, or just a feeling. They’re called ‘GIFs’, or ‘Graphics Interchange Format’, and, as I found, they’re so easy to do; just visit a site such as and follow the instructions. Could be, though, that they’re a bit too easy, and maybe that could lead to overuse?

You could download a ‘ready-made’ GIF, but I think it’s more fun to make your own. Maybe it could be a home for all those bloopers and out-takes that you cut when making your regular videos.

Unlike videos, though, you can, in many cases, just upload them like an ordinary photo.
