Now, your ideas in GIF form: Practical guide to create your own images

September 29, 2015

In this new phase, at ideas4all we are committed to the visual potential of your ideas, to help explain them better and because we believe that an idea made image is a source of inspiration for the community.

For this reason, we invite you to add images to your ideas. We even encourage you to start making your images move. In order to do this you can use animated GIFs, a trend that has become extremely popular in the Internet. Here are several very inspiring examples.

There are many websites in the Internet that offer animated GIFs that you can share in social media like ours. Some of the most popular are the following:

That said, the most imaginative among you might want to create their own GIFs to illustrate ideas. If that is the case, there are many websites that allow you to create your own GIFs in the cloud by simply selecting and uploading the images that make them up. Inspiring? Try some of the following links:

And finally, the most skilled among you can liberate all their creative potential by creating your own animated GIFs. In this practical tutorial you can find out how to do so in simple steps. Feel like giving it a try? It worked for us!

There is nothing more motivating than seeing how your ideas get going.

10 qualities you should cultivate to become more creative

10 qualities to become more creative

The title of this post reads “more creative” because I always like to proceed on the basis that we are all creative. Yes: all of us, even you; and even if you think you don’t have that “spark”. No matter how hidden your creativity is, all of us have it innately.

Although there is no exact model to define a creative person, we can find a series of qualities and conducts common to highly creative people, which we can apply to ourselves.

See what they are and you may realize that perhaps it’s not that you aren’t creative; you just need a little practice:

1. Curiosity: an essential quality is to continue seeking answers, even if the question isn’t completely clear. We must ask questions, wonder, inquire and try to understand the world that surrounds us, because that is the best way of finding new ideas.

2. Flexibility: rigidity is something we must do without if we wish to be more creative, for one simple reason: it will always take us down the same path. Only flexible thinking will make us capable of seeing different perspectives and possibilities, which can lead us to more creative solutions.

3. Imagination: although creativity and imagination usually go hand in hand, we don’t necessarily need to have a great imagination in order to find creative solutions for the problems we face. But we still need to be able to unleash our thoughts and let them invent without limits. Remove any restraints from you imagination.

4. Observation: seeing what is going on around us is not enough; we need to be completely aware of all the details. Observe everything that happens, everything that surrounds you, what it makes you feel, what really moves you… this is the only way we will be able to see possibilities wherever we look. The simplest detail can inspire us.

5. Passion: we must find our passion, because when we do something we are passionate about, when we are enjoying ourselves, the effort disappears and desire and interest grow. Passion is what makes us want to improve things.

6. Perseverance: this quality is very closely linked to the previous one, because perseverance and passion often go hand in hand. Passion makes us persevere and through perseverance we can find creative solutions. We may not have the most brilliant idea at first, but if we persevere it will only be a matter of time.

7. Freedom: if you aren’t free it is very probable that your creativity has a limit you have unwittingly set yourself. It is like fastening a chain on imagination, on the will to experiment, learn and try things out.

8. Confidence in yourself: we need to be sure of ourselves in order to face the world and its conventions, barriers and limits. We need to believe in what we are capable of contributing. If we judge things too early, we will probably never be satisfied. If you believe you could do things better, simply have confidence in yourself and create.

9. Positive attitude: because nothing good has ever come out of negativity, and if we see the world with a negative attitude we will only see obstacles instead of opportunities. By being positive we open doors to creativity through opportunity.

10. Courage: we mustn’t be afraid of getting something wrong, or our creativity will be restrained and we will end up doing the same old things out of fear that what is ‘new’ won’t work. We need to think ‘Out of the box’ even if we are afraid and in unchartered territory. We have to explore new areas, where true creativity and disruptive ideas can make their appearance.

Charlas oficina ideas4all

One thing we are absolutely certain of at ideas4all is that ideas inspire ideas, and that is exactly what we mean to put into practice by organizing our talks on innovation in our office. Our entire team gets together in a quest to find the essence of inspiration, debating the ideas others give us in an attempt to give rise to new ones.

Our talks began with three true innovators: physicist Antoni Trias-Bonet, co-founder of Aplicaciones en Informática Avanzada (AIA), who spoke to us of the dormant potential in data. Amuda Goueli, founder of Destinia, shared her personal story of how she launched Destinia, and Antonio Rodríguez de las Heras, professor of Madrid’s Universidad Carlos III and Director of the university’s Institute of Culture and Technology, spoke to us about the effect technology is having on education through MOOCs, and the cultural changes this entails.

All three visited us in our office in Madrid to share their stories and ideas, which have taken them to where they are today. We wish to thank them once more for their enthusiasm and generosity with the entire team.

Although we are currently organizing these talks in private sessions, if you are interested in finding out more about them or know an innovator with a project that can inspire us, you can contact us at and we will get in touch.
