Despite occasionally looking out of place against the polished backdrop of the modern internet, animated GIFs remain a popular source of entertainment. Uploading a GIF to Facebook is easy, but what if you want to post one to Instagram?
Instagram doesn’t offer native GIF support, unfortunately, so posting one is not as straightforward as we’d like it to be. There is a workaround, however, if you’re willing to convert said GIF into a video file first. Afterward, you’ll be able to post it on Instagram like you would any other piece of video content. An update from last year even allows you to easily add GIF stickers to your Instagram Stories. Below, we’ll outline how to do both.
How to add GIFs to a post using Giphy
Giphy is a popular search engine for GIFs, one you may already be using to source your reaction posts. The nice thing about Giphy, besides its robust library, is that the mobile app lets you quickly post to various social networks and automates the video conversion process for Instagram.
