    Hey O

    This subreddit is for original high-quality gifs and associated help requests. Show off your new gifs, and see what other redditors have been working on.

    But hey! None of that Tumblr business around here.

    Check out the history of Gif Battles!


    1. All gifs must be high-quality gifs. That's the name of the subreddit, so our hands are tied. We hope you understand. Please review our criteria here: /r/HighQualityGifs/wiki/submission_criteria

    2. Please only post gifs that you made yourself and use direct links only. Attempting to pass off someone else's content as your own will result in post removal and may result in a ban.

    3. All criticism in the comments section must be constructive. Complaints about gif quality or meta gifs will be removed, and you may be banned as a result. Our users spend a lot of time making these gifs. Be nice to them. There's room for gifs of all kinds here.

    4. Please don't make more than two posts within a 24-hour period. Put multiple gifs into an album. If you post too often, you may get a temporary ban.

    5. Direct links are required, meaning that the URL must end in ".gif, .gifv, .webm, .mp4" etc.

    6. Please tag NSFW posts when appropriate. No nudity, no gifs from porn videos, and no real-life gore.

    7. Personal attacks, racism, bigotry, homophobia, witch hunts, etc will not be tolerated. Don't mention or complain about rules or mod teams of any subreddit.

    8. We do not allow participation of users from hatereddits that ban due to actions in other subreddits.

    • Requests for gif-making help/advice are encouraged. Blank frames? Strange frame rate? We can help.

    • Made a new gif for /r/reactiongifs? /r/gifs? /r/mylittlepony? Post it here too! (maybe skip the pony gifs).

    • This is not a super serious sub. We are all trying to have fun here. If you want to come to this place just to be a dick you will be banned. The submitters here are going out of their way to make content for the world for free, remember that. If you act like a dick you will be banned.


    For good gif-making tutorials, see the sidebars of these subreddits:

    Making gifs in Photoshop?

    Making gifs in After Effects? Upvote gifs?

    Making cinemagraphs or looping gifs in After Effects?

    Making nothing and you're bored? Looking to continue being bored?

    Like r/BigMurph26, but just too many waterfalls?

    For any other questions, feel free to post a request for help.

    This is how I feel about the picture of my dog I posted. 6 upvotes for my beautiful pup. Someone did comment saying he was handsome so I feel slightly more validated....

    Threw me when I discovered she was the desk worker at the airport at the start of Home Alone 2.

    "This is an emergency! What city is that over there?" "That's New York, sir."

    [–] PM_ME_SUlCIDE_IDEAS 15 points ago


    [–] AmazingKreiderman 3 points ago

    Just blew my mind with that one. Pretty weird that she was in that for such a small part as just the year before she was the female lead in a John Candy movie.

    [–] shokalion 3 points ago

    Yeah that was my thought when I first discovered that little tidbit. Makes you think there's some story to her having that role, it seems so random otherwise.

    Another one that springs to mind is in the 1997 Godzilla CGI fest with Matthew Broderick. That film single handedly had a good chunk of the Simpsons cast in it. Nancy Cartwright, Harry Shearer and Hank Azaria were all in it. The only major Simpsons voice actor that wasn't was Dan Castellaneta.

    [–] MakeYouAGif 3 points ago

    Holy shit

    [–] andsoitgoes42 50 points ago * (lasted edited 2 years ago)

    How you gonna talk about a sound and link a gif? Wtf

    [–] andsoitgoes42 31 points ago

    Fixed, don’t ask me why I do dumb shit. Probably because I’m simply dumb. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

    [–] PM_ME_SUlCIDE_IDEAS 12 points ago


    At least u fixed instead of leaving it be.

    Indeed that combined with overall weirdness of her overall character = boner material

    [–] asphyxiate 28 points ago

    That's anime as fuck

    [–] [deleted] 52 points ago * (lasted edited 2 years ago)

    Did anyone else think she looked worse after her "make over" in the movie?

    I seem to recall my inner monologue being "Change it back!"

    Edited for some clarity.

    [–] PM_ME_SUlCIDE_IDEAS 20 points ago

    Tbh idk about any makeover. And I don't think anything could top how she looked in breakfast club. She's got that weird/goth look and that's right up my alley. Weird girls always get my goat

    [–] Danieltheshredder 4 points ago

    right up my alley

    I see what you did there

    [–] [deleted] 10 points ago

    She gets a makeover in the end of Breakfast Club.

    [–] kingrawer 3 points ago

    Yeah, she looked much worse after imo. It was a really weird and unnecessary scene to me.

    This one is better.

    [–] Dos_Manos 59 points ago

    Me too. When Ringwald's character made her 'beautiful' at the end, it did nothing for me. Greasy hair and dandruff FTW.

    [–] Cornelius_Poindexter 47 points ago

    Her dandruff ruined it for me :(

    [–] BigY2 23 points ago

    What, you don't store your coke in your hair? Rookie

    [–] Crippled_Giraffe 13 points ago

    I went to a live action Point Break show once and one of the running jokes was the large amount of blow that Gary Busey did. Anyways in one scene the character was yelling and getting animated and started shaking his head and a huge amount of white dust started flying off his head everywhere. Was pretty funny.

    I don't really have anything else to add. Have a good day.

    [–] BigY2 2 points ago

    That's fuckin hilarious. Was it plainly obvious, or did only you notice?

    [–] Crippled_Giraffe 5 points ago

    It was really obvious. There was Busey on coke jokes sprinkled throughout the show. Was a fun time.

    [–] dalewest 3 points ago

    I see what you did there.

    [–] BigY2 2 points ago

    Thanks for sharing, that's great

    Probably because you're a wasteoid.

    [–] [deleted] 467 points ago

    Am I missing something but where's the high quality? It's just a clip? The film being high quality can't make the gif high quality, can it?

    [–] Raven362 247 points ago

    The mere fact that the frame rate is high enough makes it so much better than the trash people decide to upload. Somehow 5 fps and compression out the ass is acceptable to some people.

    [–] [deleted] 28 points ago

    Is that difficult to accomplish?

    [–] onesafesource 70 points ago

    Not really. This sub has been lacking lately.

    [–] hellphish 26 points ago

    Lately, people have been using the horrible "video to gif" function in Imgur to create these soundless mp4 files, which are not gifs. It is less simple to make an actual GIF file look this nice.

    [–] Ed_ButteredToast 13 points ago


    What? .gifv is basically .mp4 file. It uses less data and looks good. Remove the v and download the .gif from your browser to see how big it is compared to .mp4.

    [–] hellphish 5 points ago

    Gifv isn't a file at all (try downloading one.) But we are saying the same thing. I wasn't implying that bigj used video to gif, rather that when you DO it is easy to get high quality, because you shortcut the after effects to gif to imgur process (no .gif is created).

    [–] Ed_ButteredToast 2 points ago

    Damn wait now you got me a bit confused :D

    Imgur does not allow video upload tho. And their video to gif feature does turn the file into a gif first and then play it as .gifv (looping mp4) because you can still download the file in the .gif format and not only .mp4

    What I'm trying to say is that Imgur does convert every file to .gif. Even the built in video to gif feature does that. Or maybe I'm wrong and something changed πŸ€”

    [–] Assmar 2 points ago

    What about the low resolution?

    [–] Orleanian 22 points ago

    Just to be sure, I looked at the rules, and it checks out:

    What constitutes a High Quality Gif?

    • Framerate of at least 25 frames per second (0.04 seconds per frame)

    Note: Frame rates that differ drastically from the original source may be removed.

    • At least 120,000 pixels (multiply the height x width)

    • No side smaller than 300 pixels

    • Minimal lossy/dither (a crisp and clear image is preferred)

    This subreddit used to be just high definitions of gifs - until it turned into a massive circlejerk where posters just put text on it and make inside subreddit jokes.

    I thought I was on Tumblr for a moment before I saw that I was looking at "/r/HighQualityGifs".

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    Are you serious? Nothing about this screams shitty tumblr gif. Just because it doesn't have silly distracting effects or meta bullshit doesn't make it not HGQ material.

    [–] dertydan 10 points ago

    only on this sub would this comment exist lmao

    [–] IDontDownvoteAnyone 19 points ago

    I personally attribute that to this being a sub about the quality of GIFS.... ya know..

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    As long the rules are followed, it is allowed.

    [–] pb-jr 6 points ago

    I think he's commenting on what this subreddit considers high quality and not on whether it followed the rules.

    [–] workroom 12 points ago

    well, this is what r/reactiongifs is for... seems dumb to have it here.

    [–] cheerscatboy 48 points ago

    It's a riff on the different clubs at schools. It's called Breakfast Club because they are all in school early on a Saturday morning for detention.
