How do I embed a GIF in my blog?

Search for the GIF in question. Click it. If you’d like to include a caption and a link for that caption, go ahead and add these. You can select one of two ways of embedding the GIF. Select “Embed full-width GIF” if you’d like the GIF to stretch to the width of your blog text. Select “Embed custom-size GIF” if you’d like the GIF to be a fixed width/height (set to 580 pixels max width and 800 pixels max height)

How do I search for a GIF from a particular Gfycat account or user?

In the search bar, type the account name then press Return. You’ll get a selection of GIFs from that user or channel and can select the GIF you’d like to use.

What are the categories that I see?

To make it easier find GIFs, we’ve picked a few known search terms and curated some of the content there. In many cases, you’ll find really interesting content just by browsing those categories.

Can I use your GIFs for commercial purposes?

Using any of our GIFs for non-commercial purposes is “fair use.” Gfycat is a user-generated content platform and we don’t own the rights to most of the content on our site, so you shouldn’t use Gfycat GIFs for commercial purposes unless you’re sure you have the rights to do so.
