What is happening?

After 9 years in existance WeGIF is shutting down. We started WeGIF at a time when animated gifs seemed to be in jeopardy from extinction. We believed that there was a lot of power and creativity in the format so we created WeGIF to allow anyone on the web to make their own animated gif creations in a fun, engaging way without the need for paid software packages.

Needless to say a lot has changed since we started. The world has been taken over by smartphones and we're pretty certain gifs are here to stay! We like to think we played [at least a small] role in that. :)

Why is this happening?

WeGIF has mostly been supported by our ourselves and it has been a labor of love. But it does cost money and more importantly, time, to keep it running. A lot has changed in our lives since we started WeGIF in 2007. It's finally time to close the doors.

What does it mean for you?

On November 30, 2015 will close and all website data will be erased. If you wish to download a copy of the gifs you have created, please log in and choose download my archive.

Gifs embedded with the WeGIF player in your own pages and blogs will stop functioning. If you wish for them to continue to work, please download your archive and upload the gifs directly to your sites.

Thank you!

We want to send a huge thank you to everyone who checked out WeGIF and helped us co-create as part of this creative journey. We also really want to thank our families who helped tremendously to get us started and supported us along the way.

Thank you and keep creating!

- The WeGIF Team.
