If you are wondering how to upload GIFs on Facebook, it really is very easy. First of all, the type of photo or video that you choose to upload must be large enough to load in the tiny browser window that the Facebook application offers you. In general, a GIF should be around 500 pixels wide. To test whether a GIF file is available, go to the upload section and click the “Open” button. You’ll then be given the option of selecting an uploading method. It’s recommended that you use the standard web browser that you’re using, such as Internet Explorer because you might get an error message when trying to upload a Gif if your browser isn’t designed to support it.

Once you have chosen an upload method, you’ll want to find the photo on your computer that you want to use as the GIF file. To do this, right-click the photo and choose “Open.” You’ll then see a folder of photos that are related to the subject of your Gif. Clicking on one of these photos will bring up a preview of the photos in that folder for you to choose from.
Once you have chosen the photos that you want to use, you’ll want to right-click them and go to” Gallery.” From there, you can pick a different format to choose from. There’s a link labeled” Gallery,” above the photos that you want to display. This link will typically be yellow, above the photos. If you’re using a different color theme than the one shown, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve clicked on the appropriate icon in the drop-down list.
After you have made your choice, you’ll want to save your photos as a Gif file. To do this, you will need to either click on “Settings” next to the gear icon in the lower-left or on “My Account” next to the gear icon in the lower right. You’ll see the option for uploading Gifs along with a Save button. Clicking on that link will prompt you to select a file location where you’d like the resulting GIF to be placed. The folder that you choose will dictate where the resulting Gif will be stored.
The next part is a bit more involved but is still pretty easy. Once you have located the photo that you want to upload as a Gif, you’ll want to double click it. A dialog box should pop up displaying a “loading image” message. If you don’t see a message, you’ll want to click on the “Open” button. If you see the message “Your image is currently not supported”, you’ll want to click “Open.” Once the image has loaded successfully, you will see a preview of your completed Gif.
There are a few different methods for sharing photos with Facebook. The most popular is by posting to your wall. To do this, you need to click on the “Share” link under the photo. Now you can simply click on the “Share” button or you can also drag and drop the photo onto the “Share” canvas. You can also drag and drop the entire canvas to a specific location on Facebook to post your photo to that location.
If you’re using Google’s Picasa web-app, you can upload your photos directly to it instead of Facebook. First, go to the settings and click “Gallery.” On the left side, there will be a pull-down menu for selecting an album. Click on the plus icon to add a photo to your gallery.
For the best results when learning how to upload GIFs on Facebook, you’ll want to save all of your images directly to your computer rather than the social media site. If you already have photos you want to post, Facebook offers two options: one is to upload them and the other is to upload them to your photo album. To upload the photos to Facebook, you’ll want to click on the “Advertising” menu and then on “Social Media.” Look under the section called “Apps and Services.” Open the app and scroll to the bottom where it says “Open in Facebook,” then select it.
