GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) files may contain a single image or multiple moving images in animated GIF files. GIF files are often used as avatars and in forum posts online. Sometimes, merging two or more GIF files results in a more dramatic or effective presentation. With the help of some free Web-based GIF utilities, you can fuse your GIF images or combine your GIF animation files.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Merge your animated GIFs into one animation using the utility on GIFmashup's website. Simply enter the Web addresses of the GIF files you'd like to merge into the "Enter URL of .gif" fields in the green boxes on the page, and then click "MASH GIFS." GIFmashup's utility allows you to resize each GIF dimension and to adjust their orientation. However, the utility's main drawback is the inability to upload GIFs from your computer.

  2. 2

    Use GIFMAKE's online utility to merge multiple GIF animation files into one. GIFMAKE allows you to upload GIF files from a Web address or from your computer. You can adjust the duration of each GIF. If the two GIFs have different dimensions, you can set the larger GIF to conform with the smaller or you can set custom dimensions for them. You also have the option of setting a finite number of loops for the merged GIF or you can set it for an endless loop.

  3. 3

    Merge your GIF images into one file using ImageMerger's Web-based utility. ImageMerger's utility is designed for image watermarking, but can be used to merge GIFs of any size. The utility lets you set one GIF image as the background and set the other as the foreground for the merged image. After selecting your GIFs, you can drag and drop your foreground image anywhere over the background.
