Can You Add a GIF to Your WordPress Site?

It’s now possible to add a GIF to your WordPress site! Thanks to new tools from Automattic that make adding GIFs as easy as pie. Let’s take a look at how you can add a GIF to your site in three steps.

Step 1. Find Your GIF.

The first step is to find a GIF that you want to use. You can search online using popular search engines like Google or Bing or visit image sharing websites like Imgur or Pexels to find GIFs. You can also use tools like Pinterest Marketing Tools that help you find the most popular and relevant GIFs for your niche. Once you have your GIF, download it to your computer. You’ll also need to determine the dimensions you want for your GIF (i.e. the width and height of your image).

The great thing about these tools is that they make finding and adding a GIF to your site as easy as possible. If you’re using a cell phone to take a screenshot of your desktop browser, prepare to download many more gigabytes of data than you normally would.

Step 2. Add the GIF to your WordPress site.

The second step is to add the GIF you found to your WordPress site. If you have a free WordPress account, you can do this easily by navigating to the Add New page and clicking on the Add Media button. You’ll see a screen similar to this one.

Use the Add Media button to add the GIF you found to your WordPress site. If you don’t have a free account, click on the Contact button above the text area to send an email to [email protected] requesting a free account so you can add media to your site.

After you add the GIF, you’ll see a small portion of it appear in the Media gallery on the right side of your WordPress dashboard. You can either leave it there or delete it to make more room for content.

Step 3. Customize Your GIF.

The third step is to customize the GIF you added to your WordPress site. You can do this by clicking on the small wrench icon that appears in the top-right corner of the Media gallery. This will open up a settings panel where you can choose the dimensions for your GIF and add text or an image to the corners of your GIF.

Use the settings panel to change the dimensions on your GIF. You’ll need to make sure that the text and images fit within the frame of your image. You can also add a description and keywords for your GIF in the area below the image.

Once you’ve changed the dimensions of your GIF, click on the Preview button to see how your content will look on a website.

That’s it! You now have a fully functioning little GIF that you can use on your WordPress site. You can change the dimensions of your GIF as needed using the settings panel. Don’t forget: you can add more than one GIF to your site by clicking on the square bracket at the end of each line of code in the previous step. This will insert a new GIF at each line break.

You can also use CSS3 animations to add a little life to your site. For example, you can animate the rotation of an object on your site using a CSS3 rotate animation. You have full control over the duration of the animation and the speed at which it plays.

Why should you use GIFs on your WordPress site?

GIFs are perfect for web designers and developers who want to add a little animation to their projects. If you’re using an HTML5 template for your site, you can add a GIF to any element using the <img> HTML tag. You can even add a <video> tag and play video files directly in your browser using HTML5.

The best thing about using GIFs on your site is that they add life to your content. When a visitor lands on your site, they’ll immediately know what to expect. You’ll start to see an increase in engagement as soon as you add a GIF to your site.

If you have a product-related website that contains a lot of text, you should consider using GIFs to engage with your audience. The great thing about GIFs is that they’re easy to add to any site and don’t necessarily require an experienced web developer to do so. If you’re looking to add some excitement to your site and don’t have the time to hire a developer, consider using GIFs.
