FOR THE LOVE OF GIF
GIF PHOTO BOOTH
What is a GIF?
A GIF is a sequence of images that have been strung together that then loop in order to form an animated effect.
The pronunciation of the word is a heavily debated topic, the creators of the format however say the 'G' is supposed to be a soft g and therefore pronounced 'JIF'. At Propel however we choose to pronounce it 'GIF' (with a hard 'G') you know, cause thats how it should be pronounced ;)
How does a GIF photo booth work?
The photo booth takes a sequence of photos. It quickly formats them into sequence to produce an animated GIF or video.
For uploading to Instagram the software uses the .mp4 format as this is currently the only way to upload GIF's to their platform. Users are then able to email the Instagram ready GIF to themselves and can then upload it from their device.
