Having trouble downloading your own GIF Image and want to add it to a album on your Google Photos or to your Flickr portfolio or maybe, you just want to add the image to your GIPHY profile, like me?

Well, here is a quick and easy way to do it but you need to be at a computer and not on a mobile phone, as mobile browser's can not open up view-source pages. Shame really.

Here's the guide:

  1. Find your GIF image you want to share from your PS4.
  2. While hovering on your GIF Image, hold down on the SHARE Button on your controller and select Activities.
  3. Type what you want and then select Share.
  4. On your iPad or tablet, head to login to your PlayStation account.
  5. When on here, head to the What’s New page. You’ll find your GIF Image there.
  6. Go into the post as if you was on Twitter and then hold on to your GIF Image until it appears larger, then select Save Image.
  7. Once saved, it should appear in your device’s photos.
  8. Create or login to your free GIPHY profile at and visit the page Create (click the link will open it from here in a new window) on your computer (can be done on mobile using Chrome App and visiting the page link at and opening up the three dots menu ( ••• ) and selecting View Desktop Site, copy your video link and pasting it in the browse box provided)
  9. That's it, that's all you needed to do. Now you have your GIF image on your GIPHY profile and you can now share it on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Facebook Messenger, Facebook Messenger For Mobile and other supporting social networks and applications. Enjoy!
