[Web] How to create GIFs with sound using Lala Gif
Posted By Kent On June 13, 2014 @ 4:31 PM In World Wide Web | 3 Comments
Creating funny GIFs is quite common among Internet users but how about GIFs with sound? Is it possible for one to create an animated image with embedded audio? Well, with Lala Gif, it’s something that you can easily achieve in just a few clicks or so. So let’s find out how this web app works.
Lala Gif is a simple web application that you can use for free. Unlike other free GIF tools that you can find online, this web app does not directly generate a GIF. Instead, it allows you to create cool and funny GIFs with sound. Furthermore, the sound that you can attach to your animated image can be taken from YouTube so you don’t need to upload any audio or MP3 file. Just place the link to your GIF as well as the link to your YouTube video and that’s it. In just a few minutes, it will give you a direct link to your animated image with embedded audio.
Lala Gif is a pretty simple and straightforward online tool that you can use to create GIFs (animated images) with sound. So if you want to create a GIF with audio, just go to the homepage of this web app and there, you’ll see a form where you’re supposed to place the link or URL to your GIF image as well as the link to the YouTube video that you want to use as GIF sound.
With Lala Gif, you can’t upload the GIF directly from your computer so you’ll need to host it first on other image hosting sites like Photobucket or Imageshack. After which, you can also opt to use the tool’s advanced options so you can specify the video start and end time. You can also customize the color of your GIF’s background.
Once everything is all set, just click the big green button with check mark. This will prompt the online tool to generate your GIF with sound. The processing time won’t take too long. You just need to wait for a few seconds and after that, you will be redirected to your GIF with audio page. Just click the play button and that’s it, you’re done. If you want to share your GIF with sound, just copy the link on your address bar and share it via email or social media.
All in all, I can say that Lala Gif works quite okay but it’s not really that impressive. It’s good for sharing GIFs on sites such as Reddit or Facebook but you can’t really maximize its use since it won’t allow you to embed or share the image directly to your blog or site. If you do this, only the GIF will be retained and not the embedded audio. This is quite a bummer especially if you want to share the image directly on sites like Tumblr.
Apart from this, I also noticed that the web tool’s advanced options do not work properly as it fails to recognize the values that I’ve entered for video start and end time. It could’ve been much better if this online tool could take some to polish or improve its features and options.
If you’re simply looking for a tool that you can use to generate funny and cool GIFs with embedded audio, you can try using Lala Gif. However, it is not something that you can truly rely with especially if you want to create high-quality GIFs with embedded audio. It’s mostly just for fun. Anyways, here’s a good example  of a funny GIF that I made using this web app. So go ahead and check it out.
