Brithny updated on Jun 22, 2020 to Video Editing Tips | How-to Articles

GIF files are images with animations and you have likely seen a lot of these on various social sites. They are mostly used for memes but many companies use them for their tutorials as well. Most of the time, people share their GIFs one at a time. However, there are now methods to combine GIFs so you can share multiple GIFs at any given time.

You can use these GIF combiner tools to merge your multiple GIFs into a single file. When you send this single file to someone, they will only need to download this one file to view multiple of your GIFs. The procedure to merge GIFs on various machines is fairly easy and you should be able to do it without any prior tech knowledge.

The following are the sections for merging GIFs on various platforms:

 

Part 1. How to Merge Multiple Animated GIF Images into One (Windows)

Windows offers plenty of features and apps to help you get almost all the tasks on your computer. Whether you are looking to edit a photo or you want to build an entire website, there are multiple tools to help you do them on your machine.

To combine GIFs on your Windows PC, you can use an app called EaseUS Video Editor. It is a video editing app but it lets you edit and work with GIF images as well. This GIF format is one of the formats you can export your files to with this app.

You can use the app to combine your GIFs in a couple of ways. The first way is that you can merge your GIFs to display one after another. This gives it a slideshow type of effect. The other way is to combine your GIFs side by side. This lets you show multiple GIFs on your screen at a time. We show how to do both of these in the subsections below.

App Features:

  • Add multiple GIFs to the app at once
  • Multiple tracks to add your GIFs to
  • Combine GIFs to appear like a slideshow
  • Merge GIFs to appear side by side
  • Drag and reposition your GIFs wherever you want
  • Export your merged GIFs to the GIF format

There are not any special requirements to run this app on your computer. As long as you can run some basic apps on your machine, EaseUS Video Editor will work just fine to help you combine your GIFs.
