How to make a photo animation



Drag the photos you want to use in your animation over from your computer, or bring them over from cloud storage services like Google Photos and Dropbox. 


Create your animation

Arrange your images on the timeline at the bottom of the screen. Add animated transitions between them, animate the images using keyframes and use the left-side menus to bring over animated text or sound effects.


Export your video

When you’re done, click the Export button in the top right corner of the screen. Flixier will process your video and save it to your computer as a video or GIF.

I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.

Evgeni Kogan

My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
