-- Thursday, September 08, 2016
Samsung released the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with a new camera feature, which is called Animated GIF. You may get really interested in the GIF images and want to know how to make it. After you can make a bunch of GIF files on your Samsung mobile, here comes the problem with the loss of images like accidentally deleting or device broken.

Now I want to show you how to do the GIF images recovery from Broken Samsung Mobile, but you need to know more about GIF at first.

Part 1: Introduction of GIF

GIF, the acronym of Graphics Interchange Format, is the image comes from photos being compressed to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality, or the video that being trimmed. Actually, GIF file is a kind of animations in a very short segment. People may get really close to the GIF images because we always send this kind of images to our friends on the social Apps. It is more interesting and can express more information than the photos.

You may normally create a GIF on the website or make it by the software like Photoshop. We just need to pick up several images or trim the video file into a two or three seconds segment. It is not a harsh job but it would take you some time to finish it. Now, Samsung makes GIF process much easier. We can take motion photos and create GIF images directly with Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. We just need to set up our device and change the camera mode! So if you are the users of Samsung Galaxy S7, you don't need to make GIF photos with the time-consuming way but just need to pick up your device and film the scene.
