Adding a GIF to your post is very simple. Our partnership with Giphy allows you to search and upload your favorite GIF right from the dashboard of Publer.

Instead of posting them right away, opt for scheduling GIFs for a later time on the Twitter & Facebook accounts. LinkedIn and Google My Business don’t support them, which makes sense.

Plus, Publer will ease your life even more. It can automatically watermark GIFs for you with your own logo, just like any other photo or video.

Last but not least, GIFs are essentially videos, thus very resource consuming. For that reason, they’re only included in the Publer Aurum version, but you can try them for free. We have reset the video free trials for all users.
