Adding a GIF in Gmail is easy thanks to the “insert photo” feature. Let’s go over the steps for how to add a GIF to an email in Gmail:
Steps to add or embed gif in gmail
Open your Gmail and compose a new email.
> When you are at the point in your email where you would like to insert a GIF, click on the “insert photo” icon on the bottom of the email to the right of the “send” and “attach file” buttons.
> From here, you can drag a GIF to the box that says “drag photos here”, click the “choose photos to upload” button to select your GIF from your files, or paste an image URL. If you don’t have your GIF ready, you can go to a GIF maker like GIPHY and either save the GIF to your desktop or copy and paste the GIF link into Gmail.
> Resize your GIF to ensure it’s the perfect size for your message.
> Finish your email, then press send!
