Incredibly good news folks, Google is now allowing you to use its Image Search tool to specifically target animated images like Gifs. The new tweak should allow you to snag the perfect Gif that much easier.

Just click the drop-down search tools option and check the ‘animated’ box. and go for it. Google says that it has also added a ‘transparent’ tick box under the ‘Any color’ dropdown to specify animated images with empty backgrounds.


Google uses the Muybridge zoopraxiscope as an example of gifs that you might want to share, but we all know that you’re looking for that perfect Dr. Who reaction shot anyway.
