How To Create a GIF Image on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Step 1 – Go to the video you want to create a GIF off. Keep in mind, this can be either an offline video or online because essentially, the Note 7 will screen-capture regardless of what you are viewing.

Step 2 – Don’t start the video just yet or if you want to snippet a part in between the video, just pause it few seconds before. Use the Air-Command utility by pressing the S-Pen button and then selecting Smart Select.

Step 3 – From the next menu, click on Animation.
