That’s changing now, as Tumblr has added a GIF search tool to its editor. Just click on the ‘+’ button and you’ll find a new button to easily look up animated photos.
Images show up with source credits, and whoever posted the GIF first even gets a notification letting them know you’re using the image, so they can feel litttle bit more special on the inside.
It’s a neat little update, particularly given the popularity of GIFs on Tumblr. The changes should be rolling out to all users today – though only on the Web.
