Frequently asked questions
When should I use animated designs?
Animation is your cheat code for more dynamic designs. Just keep things balanced. You never want to make something overly loud for the purpose of, well, being overly loud. Use animation with intentionality. It works in just about everything — marketing materials, advertisements, company presentations, social posts, etc.
How do I make animated videos?
If you’re designing in PicMonkey, choose a video template from our template library. Add graphics and text. You can animate both using our animation effects. Then download as an MP4 file.
How do I make an animated GIF?
GIFs are just animated image files. You can make one in PicMonkey using videos, graphics, or text. Like memes, GIFs usually have something to say about our culture, often communicating jokes, feelings, or ideas. When you’re done with your design, download it as a .GIF file.
