Edit and add effects to a GIF without leaving your web browser

Add filters and effects to your GIFs in just a few clicks with our online video editor! You can choose from multiple color profiles, including Sepia, Polaroid or Black and White to set the right mood. Apply effects such as swirling, glitches or zooming for artistic effect. Adjust the colors manually to enhance the looks and sharpness of your GIF, or use masks to blur and pixelate parts of it in order to censor out faces and important information. If you want to tinker, you can even add text, shapes and overlays and animate them yourself using our simplified but powerful keyframe system, and thanks to Flixier’s revolutionary cloud technology, you’ll be able to enjoy a smooth GIF editing experience on any computer.

Blur or pixelate parts of your GIF 

Protect people’s identities or sensitive information by blurring or pixelating areas of your GIF. All you need to do is add a square mask from the shapes menu and choose the effect you want to apply to it. You can then move the mask around the canvas and resize it to make sure it covers everything you need it to, or move it around the timeline to change when it comes up on screen.

Apply filters and color corrections

Zoom in and out of a GIF with keyframes 

Use our simplified, but powerful keyframes system to zoom in and out and animate different graphical elements of your GIF manually. This gives you full control over your GIF and allows you to create better instructional or reaction GIFs. You can also add text to your GIF and animate it using keyframes to create funny memes or reaction GIFs.


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.
