Bjorn's TEXT-2-GIF

Spice up your slide decks with animated text as GIFs

- a Google Slides extension -

Spice up your slide decks with simple animated GIFs, quickly generated from text.

You feed the app some text and it will generate an animated GIF, breaking the text up in a number of frames.

You can break the text into the following parts (each part becomes a new GIF animation frame)

  • Characters
  • Words
  • Sentences
  • Lines

Color lists

You can apply a color list as shown in the sample below.


Parts can be shuffled as in this example.


If you break text into characters it might look like this.

Individual frames

You can make the GIF only showing one part at a time like in the image below.

Safari issues

This app is using a feature (create images from HTML markup) that is NOT AVAILABLE in the Safari browser. With that said, you can launch the app in Safari but you can't use this critical feature. Sorry...


Note - if you have installed the add-on and the add-on submenu only contains the 'Help' option - PLEASE RELOAD THE DOCUMENT - and the other options will appear.
