Viewing images, gifs or videos in a story

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

To be able 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: pictures and videos at the top of a story
  • inline media: pictures 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 photos/gifs or 1 photo/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 photo/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 photos, gifs and videos in the story text. There is a limit to 20 photos/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.
