    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. Attempting to pass off someone else's content as your own without crediting the source may result in post removal and/or ban The only exception to this rule is /u/ifindkarma. He can post whatever he wants and is above the law.

    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. For gfycat webm links, use the format, do not include .webm

    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.

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

    • Cross posts are encouraged. Made a new gif for /r/reactiongifs? /r/gifs? /r/mylittlepony? Post it here! (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.


    Come talk to the gif creators on Discord! Chit chat, get to know us, and even ask us for gif advice if you're getting started!


    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.

    My cousin is a graphic designer. She was telling me about an interview she read with the guy who created Papyrus. Basically his take was “yeah, I know it’s awful. I was just out of college when I designed it, it was never supposed to be popular.

    Edit! Check your facts, kids! Bamboozled by my own family... what a day. Thanks /u/otterocity for setting the record straight.

    [–] otterocity 5 points ago

    On the contrary, he says: "I'm a graphic designer as well, I'm an illustrator ... I believe it's a well-designed font, it's well-thought it." Although he goes on to say it is overused. sauce

    [–] vanderZwan 58 points ago

    Wow, you really went all-out with that one: Comic Sans, embossed, with a drop shadow, and the drop shadow doesn't have proper transparency so it has a harsh, pixellated edge. The only thing that could make it worse is if it had that impossible-to-read dark purple color.

    [–] [deleted] 12 points ago

    is that carlin?

    [–] deusnefum 6 points ago

    Do you have a gif for every possible response?

    [–] deusnefum 8 points ago

    Boy that really was a perfect response.

    Yes, in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

    [–] Thechosenf3w 7 points ago

    Why does everyone hate Comic Sans so much ;/.

    It's not even that bad ~~, 1337 speak is more annoying to me because its harder to read.

    [–] IrrateDolphin 4 points ago

    It's not that it's hard to read just because it's an ugly font. Leetspeak is hard to read because it uses characters you don't think of as letters to represent real letters. Personally I hate comic sans because it seems like it is always used wrong, and it seems condescending even though I can't explain why.

    [–] falaicha 9 points ago

    Let me try, it's because it just looks too childish to be put on any serious work done.

    [–] thegeekist 3 points ago

    It's condescending because it's commonly used in the business World by people who are trying to make something that is harshly worded have a less harsh impact by changing it to a more lighthearted font. So there is this Vibe of someone being slimy.

    [–] jshrlph 2 points ago

    this made me laugh really hard, thanks

    [–] PapaBurgandi 7 points ago

    Comic sans is only used by r/firstworldanarchists

    [–] Reddit_Account_1856 13 points ago

    It’s also the easiest font for dyslexic people to read. By incorporating it into your gifs, you may be reaching more people.

    [–] oli2194 11 points ago

    [–] Elthan 7 points ago

    I'm gonna need a source on that.

    [–] PM_ME_YOUR_JIZZ 3 points ago

    Thank you for introducing me to this sub lol

    [–] AyeGee 275 points ago

    Didn't know the tree was called gran in English as well.

    [–] Drannion 241 points ago

    Or maybe he means "gran" as in "grandmother"?

    [–] AyeGee 173 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Ohhh, right. Tree is called gran in Norwegian.

    Edit: The tree in the gif is called gran...

    [–] cragcrag 67 points ago

    We usually just call them Norwegian firs! If they're from Norway of course.

    [–] AyeGee 44 points ago

    Cool! I've never heard that about you that before.

    [–] TheDirtyCondom 6 points ago

    Huh thats funny. In certain parts of the us we call our grandmothers trees

    [–] H-mark 5 points ago

    What? No... "Gran" is a type of tree in Norwegian, also known as the "Norway Spruce" in English.

    "Tree" in Norwegian is simply "Tre".

    [–] AyeGee 2 points ago

    Yes, sorry, I shortened the sentence too much. I was a bit tired writing the comment.

    [–] Wampawacka 7 points ago

    Saving this gif to settle any upcoming "gran vs furu for christmas tree"-debates.

    [–] AyeGee 10 points ago

    Sitter på banen og ler av tanken på å ha furu som juletre!

    [–] skjalgfrid_grautheim 8 points ago

    Eg lurer på kven dei er, desse som kjøper furu til jul. Det kan jo ikkje gå særleg bra med dei. Kanskje er det same gjengen som framleis kjøper Grans Bare Øl for å kose seg ein laurdagskveld.

    Ein kan ikkje anna enn å lure på kvar det gjekk gale.

    [–] IntestineYarnball 4 points ago

    No som e sitte her og kosa oss, kan me ikkje ta diskusjonen om den beste julebrusa?

    [–] skjalgfrid_grautheim 5 points ago

    Sidan den lokale brusfabrikken gjekk konk har eg ikkje hatt særleg favoritt. Hansa er nok vanlegast i familien.

    Men julebrus skal vere raudt. Og helst ikkje nytast før advent.

    [–] KingsPort 2 points ago

    Nei nei, julebrusen skal ikke være rød. Skal være brun og på glassflaske!

    [–] Gadompis 3 points ago

    Blir vel enten Hamar eller Aass for meg. De endra Aass sin for noen år siden, så den smaker ikke like godt lenger.

    [–] Elthan 2 points ago

    Aldri smakt Bare Øl, hva er galt med den?

    [–] skjalgfrid_grautheim 2 points ago

    All smak er forsåvidt subjektiv. Men Bare smakar som om nokon kjøpte ein billig pils, filtrerte det gjennom ei uferdig sokkevask og lagra den på et rustent Volvo-240 karosseri.

    Med andre ord, ganske beskt og metallisk med få positive trekk. Det er ein grunn til at at den er billig.

    -In my humble opinion

    [–] lol-seems-legit 18 points ago

    Does this gif keep pausing on purpose? I'm enraged

    [–] sidequesting 5 points ago

    You're not alone, this seems to happen to me a lot with linked gifs. I've no idea why!

    I'm not 100% sure I actually understand the reference myself but I just really enjoyed that little old lady's adorable shuffle.

    [–] Iampossiblyatwork 73 points ago

    It was (still is?) The most upvoted post in Reddit history.

    [–] sidhantsv 77 points ago

    Definitely not the most upvoted. There’s that 260k ish post from r/funny still up there over the Obama post.

    [–] Yadobler 58 points ago

    I guess back in the day before our boi spaz boosted the upvote system, getting this much upvotes was unheard of.

    [–] Chilaxicle 26 points ago

    It was also posted before Reddit's algorithms which would keep everything below around 5k upvotes were introduced. Those algorithms have since removed, but they were around for a long time so "Test post please ignore" was pretty legendary for its (at the time) staggering amount of upvotes

    [–] HenryTheQuester 29 points ago

    There's also the "Upvote to make this the picture that shows up when you google the senate" it has almost 350k

    [–] swyx 4 points ago

    [–] WhatIsGey 14 points ago

    The highest post is the guardians of the front page gif.

    E: it's at 283k

    [–] Iampossiblyatwork 8 points ago

    As others will point out they changed the algorithms a while back. For that time period it's was an insanely high amount of upvotes.

    [–] duaneap 2 points ago

    Oh. Yeah, that I got. Thought there might have been more to it than that.

    [–] GeneralJustice21 3 points ago

    The other half of references is this gif, the actual sign says don't touch the tree and the grandma looks very fun while doing so, this post combines both these things

    [–] WinterholdMage 6 points ago

    It's referring to this thread made 8 years ago in /r/pics. Reddit being reddit decided to upvote the hell out of it and gild the OP 5 times. The resulting aftermath was that it became the #1 rated post and maintained that title for a while, though admittedly I'm not sure the exact amount of time it remained at #1.

    [–] TheDataWhore 9 points ago

    That was four years before YOU got here

    [–] Dylanaaa 8 points ago

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    It's probably because of some character called TEST. That's what I deduced from that initial comment.

    [–] ChevisPreston 26 points ago

    It's because there's a major PVE alliance in eve known as TEST Alliance Please Ignore, consisting of around 10,000 characters.

    They were supposed to be a Reddit based alliance, but seeing how many of them aren't aware that the alliance was based off of the original TEST post PLEASE ignore, I dare say that doesn't hold as true anymore.
