Whether you pronounce it “jiff” or “gif,” sending a GIF to a friend via your iPhone’s Messages app is a fairly straightforward process.

First, make sure your iPhone is running iOS 5 or later. Then, go to a GIF archive—Reddit and Imgur are good sources. Copy the GIF you want to send to your camera roll.

Then message a friend who you know has an iPhone—- select from camera roll and then send. It will look static in your roll until it’s sent when it will start animating again.

If you’re an Android user, there a few apps you can use to share GIFs, though you can’t text them back and forth as easily.
