Viewing Images, GIFs and Videos in a Story

Wattpad stories are more than just words; they can also contain images, GIFs and videos to help the story come alive!

To view media in a story, you must have a strong enough internet connection. You will see a grey box if the media has not been downloaded.

There are two types of media:

  • Header Media: Images, GIFs and videos at the top of a story
  • Inline Media: Images, GIFs and videos in the text of a story

 

Select a type of media to learn more about it:

Header Media

Header Media appears at the top of a story part.

There is a limit of 2 pieces of media in the header: 2 images/GIFs or 1 image/GIF & 1 video.

The number of dots under the image shows if there is more than one piece of media there. On the apps, swipe left to see the other image/GIF or video. On the web, click on the other dot.

Tapping/clicking on an image will enlarge it; tapping/clicking on a video will start the video.

Inline Media

Inline Media are images, GIFs and videos in the story text. There is a limit of 20 images/GIFs or videos in the text per story part.

Tapping/clicking on an image will enlarge it; tapping/clicking on a video will start the video.
