How to Make a GIF in Google Slides

Turn Your Slides into an Animated GIF

How to Make a GIF in Google Slides

  1. Go to and sign in with your Google account.
  2. Select your Slides presentation.
  3. Specify the width of your GIF in pixels. I selected 800 which is the highest number of pixels in the drop-down menu, but you can type in higher values if needed.
  4. Enter the slide duration in seconds. I set mine to display each slide for just 0.5 seconds. You might want each slide displayed longer depending on the content.
  5. Indicate the sequence of your slides (optional). You can list out the order you would like your slides to appear in. Not only is this a great way to reorder and skip slides, but you can also have a slide repeated multiple times to effectively extend the time that it is displayed.
  6. Click Create GIF.
  7. Preview your animation and click Save to download.
