Upload Compressed or Optimized Animated GIF To Shopify

Eddy Chung

Your original animated GIF works fine, but the file size is too large and you know speed is important to your customers. So you try to compress it but now Shopify says your file is corrupt!

Here’s how to upload a compressed animated GIF to Shopify:

  1. Upload your compressed GIF to https://ezgif.com/repair
  2. In the repair method drop-down, select Gifsicle unoptimize
  3. Click submit and download your new GIF
  4. Upload this new GIF to your Shopify

You can perform these steps after optimizing your GIF and it shouldn’t add to much to your file-size (hopefully!).
