Add Audio to GIF
Add music to an animated GIF online
Easily add a soundtrack to a GIF
With more and more viral GIFs being shared across social media, you might want to put a sound effect or song on your GIF. Attaching audio to the GIF can change the tone and send a unique, funny message. However, the GIF file format doesn't support music, so you'll need to create a video instead. With this free tool, you can combine music on your GIF and download as an MP4 with just a few clicks.
How to Add Audio to a GIF
Adding audio to a GIF means that you will have to convert your GIF into a video file format. This is because GIF files are normally images which cannot have sound. Luckily, you can easily attach audio to a GIF using Kapwing in just a few clicks.
Get started by using Studio, and uploading the GIF that you'd like to attach audio to. Then, you will also need to upload your audio file in order for the two files to be stitched together. You can use the timeline feature in Studio to time out your audio and trim it down to the correct section that you would like to apply to your GIF. You can also use advanced features like adjusting the volume of the audio, as well as generating a waveform to give your audio file some more visual cues.
Once you have added the audio as well as your animated GIF, you can apply additional changes, like adding text or resizing the GIF, easily with Studio. Just use the controls in the sidebar to make the relevant adjustments before exporting your final video.
Clicking EXPORT will output a new video containing your original GIF as well as the audio file attached. The output will be in an MP4 format. If you'd like to preserve the GIF file format, keep in mind that the audio will not be included.
Adding audio to GIFs online should be simple, fast, and free - and that's exactly the case with Kapwing. We hope you enjoy this online editor for all of your editing needs.
