Add animated text to GIFs and videos, in your browser

Looking for an easy way to spice up GIFs with some animated text? You’re in the right place! Flixier allows you to add animated  text to your GIFs easily, even if you don’t have any previous editing experience. Just upload your GIF and open the Text tab! You can choose from one of our preset styles, or add a simple title and customize it from the ground-up. When that’s done, you can animate it with more than a dozen presets, choose from tens of transitions, or create your own animations from scratch using keyframes.

Choose a text preset and animate it easily

If you’re in a hurry, you can pick one from Flixier’s many text presets and animate it easily before saving it as a GIF. These presets are fully customizable, so you can still tweak the colors, background, size and other parts of them to truly make them yours.

You’re in control with our GIF text generator

While Flixier does offer presets to make things a little easier, you're still in full control over how your final GIF looks. You can use our powerful text tool to customize your text from scratch. Choose from over 900 fonts or upload a custom one, tweak the font weight, stroke, color, size, shadow and much more!

Edit your GIFs before adding animated text to them 

Our GIF editor helps you edit your GIFs before adding animated text to them. You can cut or trim your GIFs using Flixier, tweak the colors and even enhance the brightness, saturation and contrast in order to make them look better and ensure that they fit your caption properly.

Generate your own animated text GIFs in seconds

Flixier’s animation presets allow you to generate animated text GIFs without having to spend hours watching animation tutorials. Just add your text, choose an animation preset from the right-side menu and then choose GIF as your format when you decide to save it to your computer.

What people say about Flixier

Steve Mastroianni - RockstarMind.com

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.

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.
