Uploading Custom GIFs

ContactMonkey's Email builder allows you to easily embed GIFs in your Emails using the Giphy library. All GIFs uploaded from here are fully compatible and will animate in the template once inserted. 

You may also use the file manager to upload custom GIFs as an image (insert image content block > browse > upload > insert). Sometimes, these GIFs may not appear animated once inserted into ContactMonkey's Email builder, which requires some additional work to be done by the user:

1. Configure your .GIF

The first step is to create your .GIF using any third party software. 

2. Generate .GIF URL

Visit https://gifyu.com/. Drag in the desired GIF and click upload to generate your GIF URL. Right-click the GIF and click "copy image address".

3. Insert the .GIF into your Email

After you insert an empty row into your builder, drag and drop an image content block. From there, paste the URL into the URL field within the content properties section (as seen below).
