How to animate text in PicMonkey
Start a new project
Add text & customize
Replace the template’s text with your own or add a new text layer. Customize your text’s color, font type, size, and more.
Select a text layer and click Animate on the Text Tools menu. Click an animation effect to add it to your text. Voila!
Download your design
Download your finished design as a GIF or MP4 file. It’ll autosave in Hub, PicMonkey’s cloud storage, in case you ever need to re-edit.
Make GIFs from text animations
Words or phrases are sometimes all it takes to make a fun, impactful GIF. But that doesn't mean you're stuck with Comic Sans. Peruse our massive library of fonts and get choosin', or grab a text layout for instant words with style.
When it comes to text effects, PicMonkey's tools are unparalleled. Curving text and circular text are as easy as a single click. Outline and drop shadow offer tons of creative customizations. Colors, textures, and clipping masks are yours to tinker with.
