Once your ideal GIF appears on your Snap, you can then move it around the screen by dragging it.

You can also pinch it to resize it.

To delete the GIF, you can drag it to the garbage icon. "Garbage Icon" was my nickname in High School, but when I type "garbage icon" now it is referring to the trash can on the bottom right of your screen.

The final step is to then send your Snap! Just hit the blue arrow on the bottom-right corner.

How To Update Snapchat

Should you need to update Snapchat because the thrill of posting GIFs on your face will not be lost on you, head to the App Store. There you can check for updates and get the latest version of Snapchat.

If that still doesn't work, try logging out and then back into Snapchat. You can find this option on the Settings section inside the Snapchat app.
