How to make your own giphy

Do you want to make your own greeting giphy?

It’s a lot easier than you think.


You can use your own short video of family, friends, decorations or just about anything.

But if you don’t have a great video or don’t have the time, use a video from Pixabay.

Here is how step by step:

  1. Save your video.
  2. Go to and click on create
  3. Type in your caption, and tags.
  4. Select private or public
  5. Click on Create
  6. Click “Download” to save to your computer

That’s all there is to it! Check out my little tutorial for tips.

  1. Love your tutorials Jean! May I ask what happens if you make it private? Will that mean wherever you share it, it won’t load? On the other hand, if you make public, where will it be seen if not shared?

    1. Unfortunately, “Private” GIFs cannot be seen by anyone but you when you are logged in and can’t be shared.
      However, Unless you’re an official Giphy partner or artist, all GIFs uploaded are private, whether you upload the GIF while logged in or anonymously. All uploaded GIFs stay private until the user who uploaded chooses to share the link to the GIF.
      If I understand the policies and FAQ, the “public” choice is just so you can have a link to share.
      Hope I didn’t confuse you more.
