Step 1 – Open Streamlabs.com

To create a custom alert with GIFs you will need to log in to Streamlabs.com with your Twitch account and navigate to Alertbox on the left hand side. Select the alert type that you want to add the GIF too.

For this example I’m going to be using the Donation alert.

When you are in your alert type (donation, Subscription etc) scroll down to the image section and click on the URL icon.

A box will appear asking you to add the link to your image. This is the link we copied from the GIF platform previously. Remember just right click –> Copy Image Address.

Paste this link into the link section in Streamlabs.

When you click submit you should then see your GIF inside your Streamlabs alert.
