***HOW TO GIF***

Stolen from the amazingly helpful @workingonmynightcheese and the TTGP board.

 

Welcome! If you're new, you may be asking yourself questions like...

  • What is a GIF party?
  • How do I get one of those gloriously funny moving pictures in my post?
  • What the heck is a GIF?
Well, look no further...

A GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) image is a sized down clip of a video. In short, a GIF "is a graphic image on a Web page that moves - for example, a twirling icon or a banner with a hand that waves or letters that magically get larger." Click this link for the nerdy info

This is a GIF of a waving bear, a personal favorite of mine.

Here's how to join in the fun:

From your phone:

  1. Go to Google, search for what you want. For example "funny cat GIF."
  2. Click "view image"
  3. Copy the web address at the top (make sure it ends in ".gif")
  4. Back on TB app, click the little black box in the editing window, it looks like a peice of paper with the corner folded.
  5. Past the URL for the image into the pop up window and press enter. It should show up!
  6. You can also click and hold the image on some phones and choose "copy URL," which does the same thing as copy and pasting the link.
  7. You can also save the GIF directly to your phone, then upload, but this has some sort of required wizardry that doesn't always work. 
  8. Take a nap, you've earned it. 


 From a computer:

  1. Follow steps 1-3 above
  2. If you are stuck on steps 2-3 (on Giphy, for example) right click on the GIF and select "Open image in new tab" and copy the URL of that page. (Ctrl Click on a mac)
  3. Back on TB app, click the little black box in the editing window, it looks like a piece of paper with the corner folded.
  4. Past the URL for the image into the pop up window and press enter. It should show up!
  5. Again, take a nap. 



Remember...with GIF power comes great responsibility. Always GIF responsibly. 

BONUS! How to add a spoiler box:
1. Type whatever content you want or add a photo.
2. Select only the content you want in the spoiler
3. Click the paragraph symbol button. It looks like this: 

4. Click the "Spoiler" button. It'll show up now as a gray box with "..." but only after you post

Example:

Spoiler




Whew! All that explaining has me thirsty!

Re: ***HOW TO GIF***

    I have finally mastered the gif!

    edited because I don't know why a spoiler showed up and I had to make it leave 
  • Guys I know I'm like literally months behind, but I stillllll can't get this to work for me. I even went to some random board on the bump that hasn't been commented in months and tested it lol! Helppp. No google gifs I'm finding give me "gif" at the end. I'm working with a iPhone if that matters.

    I suck at gifs.
  • I've been trying to do this for about a week now and still can't figure it out.  I'll be GIFless forever.

  • @BreezyBee go to giphy.com find one you love and copy the link under it. On my phone I just click it and hold down and it give me the option to copy. Then I come here and use the last tab on the text bar (looks like a paper with a corner folded) and I push paste and go! Let me know if that works! 
  • Somehow I knew this would be my original post from forever ago!
