How to Upload GIFs to Gfycat

Use the Upload feature to upload GIFs and short videos on Gfycat so that you can share your GIFs on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, text message, email, and everywhere else.

Step 1: Select and Add Files

Choose GIF or video files to add by dragging and dropping, clicking the blue button to browse your files, or entering GIF or video URLs to add files for upload. You must be logged in order for GIFs to be saved to your account page.

Step 2: Uploading

Once you choose your files, we automatically begin uploading them to save time. While that is happening, you can locate more GIF or video files so they can begin uploading also.

Step 3: Add a title, tags, and privacy settings

You can add relevant tags to your GIFs, separated by commas. You can also change your GIFs from Public to Private. Private GIFs cannot be seen by anyone except you when you are logged in. Private GIFs can be shared if you send the URL to someone or post the URL on social media. Privacy settings must be applied individually to all the GIFs in your upload.

Step 4: Share your GIFs!

You can share Gfycat GIFs on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, Pinterest, VK, Tumblr, text message, email, and everywhere!
