Hi guys,

So as you will have seen, instagram storied added the GIF sticker function.
As soon as I saw this I had lightbulbs flashing for what kind of things I could do and the applications of this for creating branded GIFS.

I am having some trouble.
So far I tried:
- going to GIPHY
- Signing up
- Uploading my GIF that has a clear BG

Now all seems fine, but... I cannot find the GIF in my instagram stories feature.
Has anyone had success doing this?
Could it be that my GIF file size is too large?
Or do my GIF stickers need a certain number of likes before they show up in Insta?

Anyone who has been able to succesfully upload their own let me knows.
If not... follow the thread and I will post as soon as I find out how.

EDIT:

I have finally found out how to upload gifs... see below:

HOW DO I BECOME A GIPHY FEATURED ARTIST?

  • We're always on the lookout for new GIF artists to showcase. If you would like to be considered for inclusion in our featured artist directory, shoot us a link to your GIPHY channel page and your blog/portfolio/website to [email protected]. You must have at least 10 GIFs or stickers on your channel to submit. Please note that this opportunity is only open to visual artists at this time, and that submissions emailed without any portfolio will not be considered. All other inquiries should be directed to [email protected].

HAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE VERIFIED?

  • In addition to all the features of being an official GIPHY partner, Verified Channels will now power “Social Search” - the ability to search specific channels anywhere GIPHY powers GIF distribution. Simply type “@username + any tag” to get content from your favorite creators. This will be available on GIPHY, as well as integrations within Facebook Messenger, Twitter’s GIF button, Tinder, Slack, Twitch, Outlook and many others. Only Partner and Artist Channels can be Verified at this time.

Right, now time to try and get myself verified :)
