When it comes to modern technology, there are two things that millennials absolutely love. They love GIFs and they love taking photographs. Luckily, there’s now a way to combine the two. This ends in neat photographs, funny jokes, and memorable pictures. Instagram rolled out their latest update and it has a lot of people talking.
Just when you think the Instagram app has done it all for your photography needs, they come out with something new. Users can create something called their story, similar to what Snapchat has. It’s a temporary glimpse into someone’s life made up of pictures and videos. The story eventually deletes. In the meantime, however, users are having some fun. According to Buzzfeed, you can now quickly and easily add a GIF to your Instagram story by downloading the latest version of Instagram.
There’s no shortage of ideas when it comes to this latest update. You can post a video of yourself running and then add a GIF that shows someone chasing you. You can add a funny face, a celebrity crush, a cute animal, and much more. The possibilities are endless to create true masterpieces. GIFs can also be used to enhance your Instagram story with even more cool effects! You can mess with the weather by adding animated sun or rain. Many people are still left hoping that eventually, they’ll be able to add GIFs to their regular Instagram posts. Right now, that option is not available unless you were to download a third-party app. Instagram will hopefully listen to the people and allow them to add GIFs to all aspects of their life. This will make it easier to create memes and inside jokes among users. GIFs are all the rage and it’s time that Instagram makes full use of them just like other apps like Facebook has done.
