How to make Animated GIFs and add sound to pictures on the Galaxy S 4

Samsung_Galaxy_S_4_Animation_Shot

Samsung introduced Animation Shot and Sound & Shot with the Galaxy S 4, which gives you more creativity with your photos. Animation Shot allows you to make an image that has movement in it. In other words, an animated GIF. The best part of it is that you can fine tune the duration as well as what parts of the image you want to actually show movement.


Sound & Shot is simply adding voice to a photo. Take a picture, but hold it for another eight seconds for an audio message such as, “We miss you Grammy” or “I love you Mommy.” Both are pretty cool, but with so many new features, it can be overwhelming sorting it all out. That’s why we created this hands on video showing you how to use both modes. In no time you will making some pretty cool animated GIFs and putting a smile on Grammy’s face.

Head on past the break to watch the video and don’t forget to check out all our Galaxy S 4 guides.
