Hey Reddit! We’re Giphy. Let’s talk about GIFs!
What’s up, Reddit?
Let’s be real: we’re really proud of our site and we’d love more redditors to start using it. So, we’re going to start running ads on Reddit for the next month and you'll see us around. But before they get started, we wanted to say ‘hi’ and answer any questions you might have.
Like, “Are you guys releasing some new features any time soon?” Well, funny you should (sort of) ask because we have two new features rolling out today:
- Giphy now supports GIF uploads. The upload size is unlimited so feel free to upload your HD GIFs. What’s also cool about our upload functionality is that you can upload any MP4 file and it will convert into a GIF. This functionality even works on mobile, too, so take a video with your phone, upload and voila! It becomes a GIF that can be shared.
- We know Redditors love GIFs that load super fast so we now offer the HTML5 video version of all our GIFs. Find the link on every GIF permalink page under “Share”.
Anyway, we’ll be hanging out for a couple hours so ask us anything about Giphy, GIFs, our API, new features, or even what we like to eat for breakfast. Whatever! We also want to build the best tool for you guys so feedback and suggestions are totally welcomed.
Here’s the proof that we are, in fact, Giphy4RealTho: http://giphy.com/gifs/5xtDarIt1AVFfvXG2SA/tile
EDIT: Alright, guys! We're wrapping this thing up. We had a great time and hope you did, too!
EDIT 2: So after chatting with you guys, here are some things were going to be working on: albums/galleries, RES, tagging GIFs, creation tools, and finally our pronunciation of 'GIF'. ;) Thanks again and stay tuned!
Edit 3: We're in RES now :)
