A simple tool to rotate GIFs

It’s never been easier to rotate a GIF image. Our intuitive platform lets you rotate GIFs with just one click! This lets you rotate them more than once, in any direction and at any given time since the options are quick and easy to find in our video editor.

Rotate GIFs into any position

Transform a GIF by rotating it freely and indefinitely in any direction until you’re happy with the result! If you require precision, use our interface’s tools to rotate it clockwise or counterclockwise by 90°. With both alternatives available, we’re sure your GIF will end up in the position you aimed for.

Make a rotating GIF

By using keyframes, you can create a GIF that rotates continuously or which contains other spinning elements. Since they’re very flexible to work with, you can add and edit keyframes on the GIF’s track to make it rotate gradually as fast and as often as you want.

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.

Steve Mastroianni -

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.

Evgeni Kogan

I'm so relieved I found Flixier. I have a YouTube channel with over 700k subscribers and Flixier allows me to collaborate seamlessly with my team, they can work from any device at any time plus, renders are cloud powered and super super fast on any computer.
