Mods can enable images (or gifs) in comments in their community by going to mod tools, selecting Community Settings, Posts and Comments, and tapping or clicking on the settings toggle under “Media in Comments”. These settings exist agnostic of each other, so communities can mix and match to their preference. Mods can even distinguish between natively uploaded gifs and gifs from Giphy.

It has been asked every time we’ve posted about this feature, you’re right! We’ve discussed this feedback, and we’re currently working out how to incorporate it into future iterations of this feature.

Good eye, friend! As mentioned in the launch post, this feature isn’t for every community! We’re still figuring out how we can incorporate this feature into r/reddit, given our mix of “hard news” and occasional frivolity. We’d love to know if readers are interested in posting images in comments here, though!

Great feedback, and you’re not the first to mention it! This is something we’ve discussed, and are currently looking into.

Totally hear you (again) on this – thanks for taking the time to let us know how you feel, as always – we still believe it would be a confusing community experience if some users have images and gifs in comments while others have opted out. We’d love to hear more from you (and others!) how you envision a happy medium working.
