Creating an Image post with a GIF

You can create a moving Image post on Haiilo by uploading one GIF. When a GIF post is shared on social media, it will be animated and play for viewers.

You cannot edit a image post's audience and GIF after the post is published.

Step 1: Select audience

  1. Select Image in the Create a post box at the top of the feed
  2. Select an audience: External sharing or Internal reading. External sharing means the post can be shared on social media. If you choose External, you can select the social networks on which the post can be shared. For all networks, you can only upload one GIF.
  3. Select Next

Step 2: Add a GIF

  1. Upload the GIF. After uploading, you can still remove and replace your GIF. However, the GIF cannot be changed after publishing.
  2. Give your post a title
  3. Select Next

The supported image format is GIF. The file size cannot exceed 5MB and can contain up to 250 frames. There are no specific ratio requirements when uploading a GIF to Haiilo, but very large GIFs will be compressed, which might affect the quality.

Step 3: Configure

  1. Select the channels where you want your post to appear. You must add at least one channel, but you can add multiple channels.
  2. Set the post's language. The language is automatically set based on the content of the post, but we recommend verifying that the language is correct.
  3. Add a campaign for your post. This option is only available for admins.
  4. Enable or disable comments for your post. This option is only available for admins.
  5. If you selected External as your post's audience in Step 1, you can also:
    1. Write recommended messages for each selected network. You can write multiple messages by selecting the + icon or, if activated for your platform, use AI to generate sharing messages.
    2. Define points per network that users receive for sharing the post. This option is only available for admins
  6. Optionally, enable additional options, such as read (view) confirmation, featured posts, or notify users immediately. These options are only available for admins.
  7. Select Next

Step 4: Confirm

  1. Optionally, write comments or an explanation for your post. These comments will be displayed above the post when it's published and will only be visible internally within the platform, not when shared on social media. We suggest using this field to inform your users why they should share the post on their social networks.
  2. If you want to delay the post's publication, select Schedule and define a date and time for it to be published. This option is only available for admins. Scheduled posts show on the Scheduled feed until they are published. 
  3. Once you are happy with your post, select Done to submit the post. Unless you scheduled it, your post will be published immediately.
    • If you are a user, your post will need to be approved by an admin before it is published.
