DENVER - Photobucket Corp., a leading global photo-and-video-sharing service, announced it will debut the Photobucket Animated GIF Maker for iPhone and Android devices at Denver Comic Con, which begins today and continues through Sunday.
Photobucket users will now be able to create their own animated GIFs to share on Photobucket, social networks, forums and blogs, the company said.
The app for iOS users is now available and an Android version is coming soon, Photobucket said. The app is free to download through iTunes and Google Play stores.
Denver Comic Con, first held in 2012, is expected to draw 75,000 attendees to the Colorado Convention Center.
"We're always seeking out creative ideas," said Tone Ellis de Jesus, Denver Comic Con director of communications. "With all the amazing things happening at Denver Comic Con, we think Photobucket's GIF maker is a really great way to capture, save and share all those memorable moments."
"We chose Comic Con to launch our new animated GIF Maker because of the celebrities and creative audience that the event draws," said Kate Hare, Photobucket's chief product and marketing officer.
Photobucket is home to more than 15 billion images, with more than a billion animated GIFs. A GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is a short, looping animation or video clip in image form.
Photobucket's new mobile feature allows anyone to create, store and share animated GIFs instantaneously, the company said.
