A GIF is an image file format commonly used for images on the web and sprites in software programs. In simple words, GIFs are a series of images or soundless video that loops continuously and doesn't require anyone to press play. Learn how to insert a GIF to your site to relieve a text-based content and add animated elements to attract the attention of your users.

Important: this option is available for Pro sites only.

Finding a GIF

There are plenty of platforms that allow you to store, download, and share short animated images. Most of them allow you to embed the image using the iframe tag — you can find this information in the Help Center of the relevant app. However, the GIF will consist of the third-party service's branding and most likely will stand out from the overall design of your site.

We've gathered the most popular apps to show you how you can embed the GIF to Weblium without any mentions.
