I decided to make a GIF for the Punk icon and legend, the founder and front man of “The Stooges,” who were arguably the first and most influential Punk band ever to exist, James Newell Osterberg Jr. aka Iggy Pop!
Sine there aren’t many quality videos out there of his days in The Stooges, I decided to use his music video of his solo song “The Passenger.”
Little known fact about this song: David Bowie originally sang the backup vocals.
To create this GIF, I followed a few simple steps that I’ll walk you through below.
In your web browser go to makeagif.com. Once you’re there, you will need to sign up for an account or login. (I’ll also include a video at the bottom in case I missed something).
Once you’re logged in, you can use the YouTube to GIF option. You will need to copy and paste the URL from the YouTube video into the block. Once you’ve done that, it will bring you to this page, where you can trim and edit the length and speed of your GIF. When you’re finished, click Continue to Publishing in the lower right corner.
From here, you can download and get the link to your new GIF. Enjoy!
Here is the video for more help.
