We all know about Gif files. They have become very common these days. Instagram has recently launched a service called Boomerang, which allows users to make and upload Gifs, easily. Facebook also supports Gifs and ‘Giphy’ allows website owners to embed them, now Instagram also joins the league.
Boomerang allows users to take short photo bursts and converts them into an animated Gif file. These animated videos get saved in your phone’s storage directly.
Once it’s created, you can upload the animated Gif file on Instagram and any other platform that supports Gifs, like Facebook. This can be done directly from Instagram. The app also offers the users looping and reverse features so that they can experiment more with the animation and make creative videos!
“The app stitches together five photos to play them forward and then in reverse in a total 1-second video.”
Boomerang is already in the news in the worldwide Digital Media scene, taking it by storm!
