What is a GIF!?

a GIF is basically a series of images, stitched together to create a "moving image." It looks like stop motion picture!

Why should I make GIFS?

1. They are so fun!!

2. They are such a great way to create emotive imagery. The ability to capture "movement" within a gif, the way a single photo just isn't able to.

3. It could bring you more income, better testimonials, and uplift your client experience!
