, now it will start uploading your GIF onto the Giphy server. Now you need to agree to their Terms of Service and then click on the “Upload GIFs” button. –
Now once you have uploaded your GIF onto Giphy, it will load a preview window , Now scroll-down to the bottom of the GIF image preview and select “Advanced” option.
Note – Giphy does notes that Giphy links preview in Facebook &Twitter but Giphy Links do not animate by default and hence we are using the GIF Download Links.
Note – If the preview doesn’t load even if you pasted the correct link, Please reload the page and try again until the preview appears.
