There are plenty of reasons why someone wants to convert a video to a GIF, and these reasons can be merged into one: Compared to videos, GIFs take up less space but allow users to express their moods, sense of humor, and identity in a more low-effort and effective way. For this reason, people love GIFs. And that's why many people want to convert a video, especially a TikTok video, into a GIF.

In the following instructions, you'll find how to do it with ease. 

Part 1. How to Save a TikTok as a GIF

TikTok allows you to save videos as GIFs directly. But not all TikTok videos support this feature. If your video is not available for saving as a GIF, try using other solutions.

Step 1. Open the TikTok app and find a video you wish to convert. 

Step 2. Tap the three circles under the share button and tap "Share as GIF," then choose "Other."

Step 3. Then, choose "Save Image" to save the GIF to your Photos app.

Part 2. How to Make a GIF from a TikTok Video with a Video Downloader

As we mentioned earlier, not all TikTok videos are available for sharing or downloading. For those that have no download button, you can use the following methods to convert them into GIFs.  

1. Using EaseUS Video Downloader

If you want a quick and straightforward way to make a GIF from a TikTok video, this video downloader - EaseUS Video Downloader, is absolutely the one you're looking for. With this versatile tool, you can convert any TikTok video within 20 seconds long into a GIF without a problem. There are no limits to the number of videos you want to convert into GIFs, so you can generate as many funny memes as you want. 

In addition to that, this program is also capable of doing things like:

  • Download videos from YouTube, TikTok, Twitter, and other main video streaming sites

2. Using TTDownloader [Online]

If you dislike desktop-based downloaders, leave them and look for some online video converter apps to do the same thing. There are many online TikTok to GIF converters you can choose to use. Here we mainly recommend TTDownloader to you. 

TTDonwnloader is an online service that aims to help users convert their favorite TikTok videos to high-quality GIFs. But currently, it only supports converting videos between 1 and 10 seconds long. If it exceeds this limit, it will fail to convert. 

Note: Online converters sometimes may come with malware, which might destroy your data, slow down your computer or mobile phone, or crash your device. Hence you'd better run a stable anti-virus program to protect your device from attack.

To convert TikTok videos to GIFs with TTDownloader:

Step 1. Open TikTok and navigate to the video you wish to download.

Step 2. Click on the "Share" option at the bottom-right corner of the page, and select "Copy Link."

Step 3. Open TTDownloader, paste the link to the input box and click "Get video" to convert.

Step 4. Click on the download button to save the GIF to your computer or mobile phone.

Step 1. Open the TikTok app on your device.
