GIPHY Loves Vine is a new conversion tool that's been launched as a place for users to download their favorite looping videos and preserve them in the form of Vine GIFs.

This is of huge importance to many Internet users, as Twitter recently announced that it will be discontinuing its Vine app in the coming months. While this may mean that many Vine users may lose their most hilarious six-second video creations, GIPHY is stepping in to make it easy for anyone with an account to transfer all of their vines to GIPHY's own platform.

The Vine GIFs will be shareable as GIF images, and the platform will also save a copy of the video with sound and source data, so that hours upon hours of user-created content does not have to disappear forever.
