How To Post GIFs on Instagram

GIPHY offers a one-click solution to turn any GIF into a perfectly looped 15 second .mp4, that you can upload directly to Instagram.

On the GIPHY app:

  1. In the GIPHY mobile app, tap on the “paper airplane icon” located under any GIF.
  2. Once you tap the button, it will open a selection of social sharing buttons — tap on the Instagram button.
  3. Once you tap on the Instagram button, it will automatically open Instagram. 
  4. You will be provided with two options:
    1. Add the GIF as a post to your Feed.
    2. Add the GIF to your Instagram Story.
  1. If you select Feed, an .mp4 (15 second looped GIF) will be pushed into a post.
  2. If you select Story, an .mp4, (15 second looped GIF) will be pushed into the Story creation tools.

Resize the GIF by pinching or expanding the screen, to ensure the entire GIF is visible in the vertical format of Instagram Stories.
