Upload Animated Pictures on Facebook Page/Profile [Cover Photo and Life Events]


Now, it’s time for you to place an animated picture on Facebook for your page. The method instructed to insert animated pictures on Facebook profile is completely a different one, that is, by tagging. But here, you may upload by altering or changing some attributes in Facebook source code. Using this method, you can upload animated pictures to your Facebook timeline too. This method is not meant only for pages, also works for profiles that have timeline. A previous method which I posted about animated pictures on Facebook is by continuous tagging process. That process looked more troublesome to most of the users who love Facebook tricks. The problem is, we have to find a profile with animated picture, add him/her as a friend and get tagged in that picture. That method looks more complicated, right? What if, I take their profile picture without giving any friend request or getting tagged? Sounds Good, Right? Now, you may insert animated pictures on Facebook profile or pages.

Note: You won’t be able to upload your own GIF images as Facebook has patched the trick long back.

To do this trick, you will require Google Chrome. If you use Mozilla Firefox, you will require Firebug plugin to be installed on your browser.

Let me teach using my profile. The same trick applies for Facebook Page, but instead of Life events, you have to use Milestone feature.

To insert animated picture on your profile’s cover picture:

Step #1: Go to someone’s Timeline, example mine. You can also make use of any page.

Step #2: Open the Cover Photo.

Step #3: Analyse the URL of the picture. Copy the value of fbid and paste it in Notepad for easy use.

Example: If you find a URL like the one below, then the fbid is 3288234299547
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3288234299547&set=a.1955965913670.85877.1678391008&type=1&theater

Step #4: Go to your Profile and hover on your timeline. Choose Change Cover option. Select Choose from Photos and select any album of yours.

Step #5: Right click on the first picture (for making the tutorial not confusing) and choose Inspect element.

Step #6: Find something in the code as shown in the below picture. This will look like fbid which you copied from others profile or page. Just replace that ID with the one which you copied from other page or profile.

Replace Value Facebook Photo ID

[Click on the above image to enlarge]

Step #7: Click on the first picture which you right clicked for changing the code. Now, it’s time for you to show off your friends or fans.

You can also insert animated cover photo on Facebook page. Follow the same above method for pages.

To insert animated picture on Life event or Milestone:

Step 1: Go to someone’s timeline and see about of theirs. You may also use my profile. I have some animated images added in my Life event. you can make use of that. My profile link is available in the step 1 of the above tutorial.

Step 2: Open the picture which gets animated on their Life event. Please note, that you can also use your other’s animated cover photo for inserting it into your timeline.

Profile Life Events

Step 3: Copy the value of fbid from the Photo URL.

Step 4: Go to your profile and in status box, choose Life Event. Choose any type of event, say Travel & Experiences > other Life Event.

Step 5: Enter the name for the event and click on Choose from Photos. From now, Follow the Step #5, #6, #7 of the above tutorial.

To insert animated picture on Facebook Pages, just in the step #4, you will be seeing a option Milestone. Use them to create events for Pages.

    Is there a way that I can get fbid of an animated gif I just made?

    • Arjun
      July 20, 2012 at 3:01 pm #

      Own GIF images can’t be uploaded. The trick was already patched by Facebook. Only images that are already on Facebook has fbid.

        heres what i did:
        I went to the page with the firing cat picture.
        clicked on the picture and in the url, i took the fbid.
        then i went to my profile and cliced change cover photo and chose from photos
        then i clicked inspect element
        I used Apple F (Ctr+F on windows) and typed in “MediaThumb” to find the line show in the picture above and i replaced that value before “rel=” with the fbid. then i hit enter, and clicked on the picture and changed it to my cover photo…and nothing happened. Any solutions to this problem im having?

        • Arjun
          July 31, 2012 at 8:47 am #

          While choosing from photos, see that you see a list of photos and not list of albums. If you see a list of albums, then click on any album.
          Right click on the first picture, and click Inspect Element (Chrome) or Inspect Element with Firebug (Firebug).
          Do not press any Ctrl + F, just see the code after clicking Inspect Element. A code starts with “<a”
          Follow that line, you’ll see either photo_id or photo_fbid. Change the value to the fbid which you copied from the picture URL.

    What if we use notes to upload the gif image have seen many people doing it

    • Arjun
      July 21, 2012 at 1:22 am #

      Yes you’re right but it was patched by Facebook long back. It was made possible just by using a normal HTML tag for images.
      But Facebook, now makes all images static.

    So how come there is that timeline animate picture? how it possible that its working on facebook and we cant create one?

    • Arjun
      July 25, 2012 at 8:31 am #

      The trick to upload an animated picture was working long back. At that time people uploaded such pictures. One of the big pictures is firing cat. It meets all the size eligibility for setting it as cover photo. Now, the trick is patched by Facebook. But animated pictures are still animating. By continuous tagging or by changing the source, we may place animated picture in our timeline’s cover.

      I think this can be a easy method when you succeed in it at least once. I will guide you. Most of the people find difficulty while inspecting element. That is so simple! Just find the code starting with

    Hey Arjun!

    This tutorial worked really well, I used somone elses fid from their aimated cover and it worked.

    However, I’m now trying to figure out how I can upload my very own animated .”gifs”, I heard somewhere that you can convert .gif into .jpg files without losing the animation.

    Looking forward to your input!

    • Arjun
      July 25, 2012 at 10:14 am #

      Thank you! Happy to see that this article helped you! Own GIF images can’t be uploaded. That trick was patched by Facebook long back. But still pictures were animated till today which was uploaded by that method. So, by tagging or by changing the photo_fbid, we may make animated picture as ours.

  7. NIkola
    July 25, 2012 at 12:29 pm #

    U want to say that gift animation cant be uploaded?

    • Arjun
      July 25, 2012 at 11:38 pm #

      Yes. You can’t upload GIF images to Facebook as it resize ever image it gets on its server. A trick used to upload such animated ones was working long back, not now. But the images which were uploaded using the trick is still working. Those images can now be used for your cover picture without even having to download them.

    I was wondering if you knew anything about this.

    facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=351587161582711&set=t.100001942891086&type=3&theater

    This is the latest .gif that this person has uploaded, less than a day old (as i’m currently posting this) and has many more. There must be a way.

      Yes. Check out my profile’s Life event for such pictures. :)

    • Arjun
      July 25, 2012 at 11:34 pm #

      Stephen, You have right clicked on file browser. You don’t have to download the image from Facebook even. Just open the cover picture, fortunately, you’ll get it in a theater mode and now, on the image you have to right click and choose inspect element. For your information, own GIF images can’t be uploaded to Facebook. Only Existing GIF on Facebook will work. The trick used to upload own GIF images was patched by Facebook long back.

    Is there a way to do this with profile pictures?

    • Arjun
      July 26, 2012 at 9:22 am #

      We can’t do this with profile picture for two reasons:
      [1] Whenever a profile picture is chosen from Photos of you, it asks for cropping. This will result in making the animating image static.
      [2] Uploading animated pictures on Facebook was patched long back. A trick similar to this was used.
      If I find anything to set as profile picture, will post here.

    July 26, 2012 at 11:35 pm #

    Dude why are saying facebook patched it? Can’t you see this image was uploaded on July 17th
    facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=309714825792068

    Now I know how to do it and I’m not gonna tell ya!

    • Arjun
      July 27, 2012 at 12:06 am #

      Well, it was uploaded on July 17th but that person didn’t upload directly from his computer. He might have used this or the previous trick to upload. Just visit my Facebook profile and see the cover picture upload date and Life event uploads. It shows July! The thing is, we’ve uploaded indirectly.
      Patched I mean is, we can only use available GIF images on Facebook. We can’t upload our own GIF images. The method to upload own GIF is patched but pictures uploaded by that method still animates. If you want more pictures, you may visit my about me part of my timeline. You can take images from History by Year section by using this method (this article).
      BTW, please use real name for the comment.

    So, I want to be able to use this GIF for my banner. cresselina.deviantart.com/art/Umbreon-And-Espeon-Caramelldansen-Animation-290353190. However, I’m reading the comments, and you say there is a patch, and to have it, I would need somebody who made it work before the patch. Right? Is there no other way, I have to rely on the hope that somebody else has made it work and use that? If so, do you know of a way to find someone who has it uploaded? Thanks!

I get something like “sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/318826_266662150101949_579974994_n.jpg” and the moment that I change the element to that it will show up as that picture, but then when I click on it, it reverts back to the original image. I have no clue what’s wrong.

    • Arjun
      July 28, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

      When you see any animated picture on Facebook, do not copy/see the direct image URL. Just open the image in theater mode and analyse the URL in the address bar of your browser. You can find the value of fbid there.

        but i want to do it via system… Is there any solution for that?

        • Arjun
          July 29, 2012 at 3:13 pm #

          With an application “system” or without using any application?
          If you want to post via “system”, then create a Facebook application. Tutorial: http://www.cryptlife.com/internet/social/animated-pictures-on-facebook-as-page
          Use this link to get access token: facebook.com/dialog/oauth?client_id=YOUR_APP_ID&redirect_uri=YOUR_CANVAS_PAGE&scope=publish_actions
          In this way, you can use your own application to post animated pictures on Facebook Timeline.

        • Arjun
          July 29, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

          Or, Try with this.
          facebook.com/dialog/oauth?client_id=YOUR_APP_ID&redirect_uri=YOUR_CANVAS_PAGE&scope=publish_actions

          Replace YOUR_APP_ID and YOUR_CANVAS_PAGE with your application ID and canvas page.
          Canvas page is the one which you provide while setting up the application. If you didn’t get the idea of this, just use the URL of Facebook, it works fine. :)

        • Arjun
          July 29, 2012 at 3:16 pm #

          Please see that you’ve followed these:
          1) You have to select any album and then you have to do inspect element.
          2) You won’t be seeing the animated picture in the “Choose from Photos” dialog though you’ve replaced the photo_fbid.
          3) Please see that FBID you’re trying to take is a public image.

      This trick is no longer working. Facebook has patched this trick. You can’t upload any animated pictures on your life events.

      The trick still seems to have patched. Though it doesn’t tells anything when you save, the animated picture becomes static after saving.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Appreciate it!

    • Arjun
      November 15, 2012 at 5:54 pm #

      The trick is patched by Facebook a few months ago. Due to this, we receive an error “You don’t have sufficient permission”. If we find any ways to insert animated pictures on Facebook, we’ll show up on CryptLife. Stay Tuned.

    Please do not shout at me but is it possible to have a series of jpeg cover photos which scroll from one to the other on a loop? Does that make sense?

    So not just one static cover photo / picture but a changing image.

    If it is possible, how do you do it and how do you set the scrolling time / rate?

    • Arjun
      December 7, 2012 at 6:22 am #

      Your idea is totally a good one! But Facebook doesn’t give a feature to play slideshow. If any bug found on Facebook, we can consider them.

        Hey Arjun, I tried following your steps.. it did not work. I tried to upload the animated GIF image .. its not working.. just the animated image is becoming static..

        In Step #7: Click on the first picture which you right clicked for changing the code, you don’t seem to mention we need to safe the profile or not. Its directly directed to the other profile. And you don’t also mention as how to close the code box… please kindly help me on that
