Easily make yourself into a GIF and remove backgrounds from your photos with one click using Canva Pro.
> Take two photos of yourself in two different poses (like a GIF would look)
> Open Canva.com on desktop
> Open a new template (I used a blank Instagram post)
> Upload your two images to uploads.
> Place one of the images onto the blank post. Click affects in the top left hand corner and select background remover. This will happen automatically.
> Place the image where you want it to be on the page.
> Choose background (I used one of my own designs in this tutorial and added a filter).
> Add text/wording.
> I chose to add a few extra line details to enhance the affect.
> To make it easier, I copied the page.
> Place your second image onto the copied post and repeat background remover affect.
> Place your second image on the page in replace on the first one and delete the first one.
> To enhance the affect, you can adjust your extra elements to be larger or smaller on the copied page.
> Copy the first page and move down.
> Copy the second page and move down.
> Repeat the above two steps. You should now have 6 pages with the two posts alternating. (The idea is to have at least a 3sec video, min for Instagram)
> Now to animate. This has recently changes (like a few days ago, recently)
> You should see the word animate in the top left hand corner.
> Choose simple and fast.
> Click Download in the top right hand corner.
> Choose Video and click the blue Download button.
> Use your GIF!
