You can easily embed a specific GIF through the Gfycat for WordPress plugin.

Step 1: Install the plugin. https://wordpress.org/plugins/gfycatpress/

There are two options available to you.

Option A: You already have a Gfycat URL that you want to insert into your WordPress post. In this case, copy the end of the URL (“AnxiousNegativeIraniangroundjay” from https://gfycat.com/gifs/detail/AnxiousNegativeIraniangroundjay) and paste it into search box of the plugin.

Option B: You don’t have a specific GIF in mind. In this case use the plugin to search for a GIF that fits your intent. You can also click the smiley face icon ? to browse through Reaction GIFs.

Step 2: Click the GIF inside the plugin to embed it into your WordPress post.

You can also simply copy and paste a Gfycat URL and this will automatically use a smaller width embedded version.
