Doing fun things with your pictures can make them more enjoyable to look through. So how about creating an animation of your photos? In this article, we are going to talk about How to Create Google Photo Animation. Let’s begin!

Google Photos lets you select from two to 50 photos and turn them into a neat animation, here is how you can do that. We have gone through a number of things you can do with Google Photos. I won’t list them all here but feel free to take a gander at our Tips, Tricks & Tools page, and then check out all of our content.

Today we are here to talk to you about the animations. Remember when you were a kid and you drew a bunch of photos in your notebook and then flipped the pages to make a short “movie” if you want to impress all your friends (I was never this cool). This is actually what you can do with the animation feature.


Our setup is also the same as all of our other Google Photos walkthroughs:

  • Must have the Google Photos application installed and logged into your Google account
  • Have to take some pictures that you want to play with

Create Google Photo Animation on the iPhone and iPad

Open the Google Photos application on your iPhone or iPad. In order to create an animation, start from the Albums or For You tabs at the bottom.

  • Albums tab: click your Animations album at the top and then Create animation at the bottom of the next screen.
  • For Your tab: Under Create New at the top, select Animation.

Then click to choose each and every photo you want in the animation. You can also pick from two up to 50 photos. When you finish selecting pictures, then click Create and your picture animation will display.

Edit your animation on iOS

Just like with the Google Photos collage feature, you can also apply a color filter, adjust the light or color settings, or crop and also rotate your animation easily on iPhone and iPad.

So, when your new animation opens, then tap the Edit button (settings icon). You can then move from left to right adjusting each of the options for Filter, Light, and Color, or Crop and Rotate as well.

Keep one thing in mind that you can currently only make these edits when you first create the animation, not later. Hopefully, Google will then change this down the road.
