Google has released a new free tool to create animated GIFs. Its name is Data Gif Maker and as its name so straight to the point well explains it, it is a simple generator of animations from data.
Basically Google wants to make it very easy for you to make a “fun” animation based on boring figures and data. Honestly, it looks quite attractive, basically because GIFs are more flashy than a simple chart or a capture of a spreadsheet.
Google Create Gif Maker With Data
Data Gif Maker is extremely simple. All you have to do is fill in the data to be compared, and add the percentage that covers each one. Yes, it only works by comparing two variables, and each variable can be identified with a color. You have the huge variety of four colors available.
You have one term on the right and one on the left. You choose a color for each one, you add the percentage, and you can write some explanatory text underneath. Once ready you can preview the animation by clicking on “Launch” (if it seems that nothing happens is because you must click on the page to activate each part of the animation).
If you are satisfied with your result you can click on “Download as” to download the GIF in reduced quality or normal quality. Of course, I should note that whichever option is chosen, processing is quite slow.
