Step 1: Find a Gif
The first step in adding a gif to your Google Slides is to find one that you want to use. There are many websites where you can find gifs, such as Giphy, Tenor, or Imgur. Once you’ve found the gif you want to use, save it to your computer.
Step 2: Insert the Gif
Now that you have your gif saved to your computer, it’s time to insert it into your Google Slides. To do this, open the slide where you want to add the gif and click on “Insert” in the top menu bar. Then, click on “Image” and select the gif from your computer. The gif will now be inserted into your slide.
Step 3: Adjust the Size and Position
Chances are, the gif you inserted is not the right size or in the right position. To adjust this, click on the gif to select it, and then use the blue dots around the edges to resize it. You can also click and drag the gif to move it to a different location on the slide.
Step 4: Set the Animation
By default, the gif will not animate in your Google Slides. To set the animation, click on the gif to select it, and then click on the “Format options” button that appears. In the sidebar that opens, click on “Animation” and select “Automatic” from the dropdown menu. The gif will now animate in your slide.
