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 visibility settings
You can add relevant tags to your GIFs, separated by commas. You can also change your GIFs from Public to Unlisted. Public GIFs appear on your profile and can be searched for and discovered by anyone. Unlisted GIFs cannot be seen on your Gfycat profile by anyone except yourself when you are logged in. Unlisted GIFs can be shared if you send the URL to someone or post the URL on social media. Visibility settings can be applied individually to all the GIFs while they upload or you can set the visibility setting beforehand.

Step 4: Share your GIFs!
You can share Gfycat GIFs on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, Pinterest, VK, Tumblr, text message, email, and everywhere!
