Follow our best practices for making GIFs to optimize your GIFs on GIPHY!
- Uploads are limited to 15 seconds, although we recommend no more than 6 seconds.
- Uploads are limited to 100MB, although we recommend 8MB or less.
- Source video resolution should be 720p max, but we recommend you keep it at 480p.
- Keep in mind media will appear mostly on small screens or smaller messaging windows.
- Our mobile applications do optimize the content for size, which sometimes results in subtle changes to the GIF's size and speed, which is why following our best practices is recommended!
- Minimizing the total number of frames will help us to preserve your content when downsizing and reformatting. Fewer than 200 frames works well. Fewer than 100 works even better!
