Be still my beating heart, you can now make GIFs directly from YouTube

Dreams DO come true. This feature isn’t live on every channel, but luckily It’s Okay To Be Smart is one of the first to test this new feature from YouTube.

If you want to make a GIF of a video, here’s what you do:

1. Find the thing you want to GIF
2. Click “Share” beneath the video on the watch page
3. Click GIF, move the sliders, add text if you want to
4. Profit

You can find this feature on lots of our favorite channels, so if you’ll excuse me I have some GIFs to go make.

Share your creations with me by tagging them with #itsokaytobesmart or hollerin’ at me on Twitter! via
