😀 Learn More and Download the Presentation (PPT) @

In this Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 / 2019 Tutorial video, we will use GIF files to create an Amazing Text Animation Effect. The idea behind this animation is simple. Just convert your text into an object using Merge Shapes Subtract command and then place a GIF file behind the converted object.

You can also place Animated Character GIF as I have used in the last text animation shown in the preview. While Googling for Character GIF, you can also click on Tools, Colors and then Transparent; to have Animated Characters GIF files having a Transparent background.

Information also applies to the following versions:
PowerPoint 2010
PowerPoint 2013

  1. Sir I am using 2010 version but when I select rectangle & text ,the subtract option is not enable That is not highlighted.When I am using two shapes It is working but with text not able to subtract. plz guide

  2. My favourite way to find GIFs is to go to, type in my search terms, add a space, and add filetype:gif after it. Then, to make sure they move, go to Tools > Type > Animated. Works every time!
