You can now search and share my free GIF animations and stickers with GIPHY. My channel is still pretty new, but my GIFs have 28 million views so far! They’re free to share. And they’re built into the social media channels you’re already using. Visit my channel on giphy.com to share directly from the site. Or download the GIPHY app to search and share from your phone. There are two types of animations on GIPHY: regular GIFs, and stickers. Technically, they’re all GIFs. But, the stickers have a transparent background - which is used for overlaying them on photos in Instagram. See below for more details.
Simple Sharing thru Social Media!
My GIFs and stickers are built into all the main social media channels. Here’s how you can add them to your posts:
When composing a new Tweet, click the “GIF” button and type “phillustrations” in the search box.
To add my GIFs to your Facebook post, click the button with the three dots under where it says “What’s on your mind?”
Next, click the GIF button. Then, click in the search box and type “phillustrations.”
For Instagram, you’ll be using the Stories feature. And the only GIFs available here are the “stickers.” This makes it easiest to add the animations on top of photos and video.
First, tap the story button at the top of your Instagram feed. It’s the + icon that says “Your Story” underneath it. Take a picture or video, or add one from your camera roll. Next, tap the sticker icon at the top. (see below)
Then, tap the GIF button. And type “phillustrations” in the search box. Tap a sticker to add it to your story. You can also reposition, rotate, or scale the animation by pinching and dragging. Repeat the steps to add more stickers to the same story!
You can also add my GIFs with other popular web tools. If you use Slack, Pinterest, MailChimp, or WordPress, you’ll find a GIPHY connection there! I’m always adding new GIFs. So, keep checking back to see what’s cookin’! Tag me (@phillustrations) in your tweets and stories so I can see how you’re using them.
