Making GIFs is easy! Follow this guide to using our simple tools.

UPLOAD
Use Upload to put your GIF collection on Giphy so that you can share your GIFs on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, text message, email, and everywhere else

Step 1 – Add Files
Choose GIF files to add by dragging and dropping, clicking the blue search button to browse your files, or entering GIF URLs to add files for upload. You must be logged in to upload multiple GIFs so we can save them to your channel page.
TIP: If you add GIFs via URL make sure your URL is an image URL ending in .gif and not just any website URL (example GIF URL: http://i.giphy.com/l0O9xQNSsQKmfSeUU.gif)

Step 2 – Reorder GIFs
Optional: You can change the order GIFs will appear on your channel page by dragging and dropping the files or clicking "Reverse Order."

Step 3 – Add Tags, Source URL, and Privacy settings
Optional: You can add relevant tags to your GIFs, separated by commas, and add a Source URL to give credit to the original source. You can also change your GIFs from Public to Private. Private GIFs cannot be seen by anyone but you when you are logged in and can't be shared. Settings will be applied to all the GIFs in your upload.

Step 4 - Upload
Hit the Upload GIFs button to finish. Once upload is complete you can view and edit each GIF on its individual page and see all on your channel page if you're logged in.

Step 5 - Share!
You can share GIPHY GIFs on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Reddit, text message, email, and everywhere!

PRO TIP: You can also add video files under 15 seconds to Upload to convert them to GIFs.

SLIDESHOW

Use Slideshow to combine your pictures and GIFs into an animated GIF slideshow, a GIF presentation, or a funny GIF mashup

Step 1 – Add Files
Choose still image or GIF files to add by dragging and dropping, clicking the blue search button to browse your files, or entering image URLs to add files to your slideshow. You can combine both stills and GIFs.

You can change the order of your images to change the way they will appear in your slideshow.

Step 3 – Set Duration of Still Images
Use the slider to change the length of time still images will appear in your slideshow before going to the next image. This duration only applies to stills as GIFs will always play all the way through once before changing.

Optional: You can add relevant tags to your GIFs, separated by commas, and add a Source URL to give credit to the original source. You can also change your GIF from Public to Private. Private GIFs cannot be seen by anyone but you when you are logged in and can't be shared.
