I found a simple on device work around that doesn't require any additional software or apps. Instead of considering the GIF to be an animated PHOTO, instead think of it as a FILE. So instead of selecting the 'Add to Photos' option we need to select the 'Download Linked File' option. Once it's downloaded as a file, open it in the iOS FILES app and then 'Share' it and 'Save Image.'Browsing gifs from the Google Image search page won't normally give you an option to 'Download Linked File' so you'll need to click 'Visit' to go to the web page where the photo is actually being displayed.

It took me forever to figure out how to download GIFs onto my phone but i think i have the answear.

You are watching: Thank you sir may i have another gif

Instead using Safari or Chrome, use instead the Google app. Like go to App Store and download Google onto your phone. And on there you search for the gif you like and hold down on the image where you can download the picture

Now it should work and actaully move like a GIF should you know? Hope this helps someone out there :)))

Figured out a workaround.

This was just happening to me using the Google Search app. I used to be able to long press > download and it would save to photos.

From the Google app I clicked the 3 dots and selected “share” then chose “open in chrome.” Once in Chrome, I long pressed on the gif and chose download and it saved to my phone. (You may need to give Chrome “add only” permissions for photos in settings but it should prompt you)

Launch the Shortcuts app on your iPhone, then tap on the "Gallery" tab. Tap on the search field, type "GIF," then find and select “Convert Photos to GIF” or “Burst to GIF” from the list.

If you want to save a properly animating GIF from Chrome in iOS 14+, this is how. It's an ugly, cumbersome, but reliable solution. If you don't follow these instructions precisely, it will not work. If you do, it will.

Go to the webpage containing the animated GIF you want to save. Hold and press on the animated GIF you want to save and select "Open Image in New Tab". A new Chrome tab will open, and the URL for the new tab should be the actual image and nothing else.

Inside this new tab (again, which should show the image and image URL all by itself and nothing else) hold and press and then select "Copy" in the small black menu that says "Copy | Look Up". Do NOT select "Copy Image" in the other large menu that pops up from the bottom of the screen - it will not work. You MUST select "Copy" from the black popup menu.

Next, open the Messages App and Paste the GIF into a text message to yourself. Send it.

Tap once on the GIF you sent to yourself so you are working with just the GIF. In the lower Left of the screen, there is a Share icon. Tap it and select "Save Image".

You will now see the fully animating GIF in your Photos and can reuse whenever you want.
