GIFs are one of the internet's nice inventions - they're basically videos and pictures at the same time.
If you have a cool GIF and you want to embed it in Notion, but you're not sure how you can do that, we'll teach you that right now.
How to insert a GIF in Notion
To embed GIFs in Notion, you just have to copy a GIF's link, paste it in Notion and select "Embed image".
If you want to see the full way on how to embed GIFs in Notion, keep reading this guide, as we're going to explain this in-depth.
There are two ways to do this:
- For downloaded GIFs: just drag and drop it in Notion in order to upload them;
- For GIFs on the internet: copy the link and embed it in Notion.
1. Copy a GIF's link
First of all, you need to copy the URL of a GIF. To do that, simply go to the search bar, select the link and copy it.
That's a pretty cool GIF, right? It's a Ferrari F40 shooting some flames. Anyway, back to our guide 🔥
2. Paste the link in Notion
Up next, you want to paste the freshly-copied link in your Notion page.
After pasting your link, there should be three options: "Dismiss", "Embed image" and "Create bookmark".
What you want to select is "Embed image". Regardless of Notion calling it an image, you'll notice how the embed will actually be your GIF, and not an image.
While you can't really see this in the image above, the pasted link contains a GIF with a Ferrari F40 that shoots some flames out of the exhaust.
That was it! The GIF was not successfully embedded.
