Where can we share our GIFs?

So, are there any ways for us to share the GIFs we made? Sure. Here, I will recommend some websites to you, and you can share and create GIFs with sound there.



Imgur is a famous website that allows users to share different kinds of videos and GIFs with sound on the internet. Add tags to your GIFs, and share them with others. Before uploading, you need to sign up for Imgur. Not only sharing, but you can also view many interesting and funny videos on this website.



GIPHY is a dedicated GIF with sound sharing website. Different from Imgur, you can create GIFs with sound on the website. Log in to GIPHY and then click the Create icon. You can upload your videos or GIFs to the website, and you are able to add captions, stickers, filters, and draw to the GIFs or videos you have uploaded. Nevertheless, as an online creator, the function you can use is limited. It is a better choice for you to editor your video or GIFs with TunesKit AceMovi before you upload the GIFs or videos to GIPHY.



Tenor is a famous GIF-sharing website. After the GIF or video editing in TunesKit AceMovi, you can upload it to Tenor. In Tenor, you can save the GIFs you like by Right-clicking on the GIF and save it. Different to the above two websites, all the GIFs and MP4 are silent.

The bottom line

Contrary to the videos, GIFs come with small file sizes and low image quality. In an online chat or personal post, GIF always plays the role of a meme, which can help us express our moods and feelings. Though most platforms do not allow users to play GIFs with sound, we can create GIF with sound with TunesKit AceMovi and export them as MP4 or WebM or post them to the websites I recommended above. In addition, if you are trying to change the speed of GIF, crop a GIF, or add a filter to GIF, TunesKit AceMovi can be the best assistant for you.
