Not interested in doing dull chatting or posting something on your Discord channel without a super fun emoji or gif? Gifs and emojis add a different spark and fun to the text you send to someone or any post that you put out on your channels.

Emojis and gifs play a huge role in the context of your text. If you text something sarcastic to anyone without emojis then that person can be offended as he or she will not know that it was a taunt or insult or actually sarcasm.

So he or she might take it personally and argue further. But if you add a laughing emoji or send a funny gif after that text then that person will know that you are joking and then it will be a fun conversation instead of a heated argument. 

So the same case is with the posting stuff on Discord. If you do not post a gif then maybe someone can get offended, even if it is not worth it or it was not your intention to offend someone. There are several people watching your posts and everyone has a different way of thinking, they all have their own opinion.

But I obviously know that posting Gifs is not always about clearing yourself up or defining your text or post, sometimes it is about just having fun with stickers as well.

So if you know how to post Gif then it is great, keep posting and enjoy but if you are new to Discord and do not know how to post Gif, then you do not have to worry at all you are absolutely at the right place. Here I will explain to you very easily how to post a Gif. And you can post whatever Gif you feel like. 

How to Post Gifs on Discord? 

We all know that Gifs are a very important and fun way to communicate and connect with people. Gifs can capture the idea about what we are feeling and can also express our reactions virtually.

Instructional videos for freelancers, businesses, or education can be made by them. Gamers, interest groups, and people who make fan clubs use these Gifs to be in touch with one another and communicate fastly. 

How to Find The GIFS and How to post them as well

1. You can find a Discord Gif on a Discord Gif picker, it is also the easiest way where you can find Gifs. 

The Gif pickers contain lots of Gifs in it that it provides them all to its users. It has Gifs based on all emotions and you can choose whatever you find interesting, fun, or according to your mood. 

There is a huge collection of the categories present and you can browse from there. There is an option given on the right side of the Gifs from where you can add any Gif to your favorites.    

On your mobile, Gif can be inserted through the collection of your keyboard’s Gif into a text channel. These Gifs can take a while to get loaded on the platform but one thing is for sure that it will be embedded in the channel and by doing this all your friends will be able to see it. Now just save the Gif that you chose on your desktop and then to upload the Gif on Discord you have to just click on the + button which will be on the left side of the chatbox. 

Then you will see an option “Upload a file”, click on that. Now after clicking that you can even add a comment if you feel like it so that it goes with the file that you are uploading or it can even be a spoiler.  

2. You can even make your own Gif now. There is a Gif maker now and you can customize your own Gif according to your choice from this and then share it on Discord. You can use Dopplr to create your own fun and super cool emoji. Now to upload it on Discord you have two methods, you can either download it on your desktop and then upload it or there is a shortcut also i.e, via a short link. 

If you have chosen Doplr, then let me tell you that Dopplr has a feature that helps it in saving all the Gifs automatically. You do not have to do it manually. Not only this, it even saves the screen recordings, screenshots to a cloud and for each file that is stored, it creates a URL, and that too automatically. 

The link that Doplr created for every Gif can be copied to Discord and then screen share will be automatically shared on the platform that you put the link on.
