What types of images or videos can I use in a Riddle?

Images, YouTube videos, animated gifs, web articles… really, you can add pretty much any type of media under the sun.

In our media selector, simply click on one of the available media options and just search for whatever you need without ever leaving the site.

We currently support:

  1. Google:  The Amazon of Riddle’s image options, Google will show you a never-ending stream of pictures around any subject. You can also just paste in the URL of any Google Image into the search box.
  2. PexelsWe love these guys – they provide thousands of top quality, copyright and royalty-free images that are completely free to be use.
  3. Facebook: The 800lb gorilla among social networks, Facebook makes it easy to connect and use images from any account or page you manage.
  4. Instagram: The fastest-growing social network, Instagram is the default location for celebrities and fans alike.
  5. Giphy: Ah, Giphy – home of most of the millions of animated clips we all see online these days. They tend to be more humorous than serious – and used wisely, can provide a jolt of energy to your quiz experience.
  6. Articles: Riddle lets you directly embed any online article into your quiz, lists, or polls. We include them in this list – because the article’s main image will be scraped and added to your quiz, along with a link out to that article.
  7. YouTube: You can’t go wrong searching on YouTube. With something like 82 million videos, it’s a near-certainty that YouTube has a clip that’s perfect for your needs. (Heck, even if 40 million are of the internet-devouring cat variety, that’s still one heck of a lot of options!)
  8. Twitter: Embed any the URL of any public tweet from any account – a great way to tap into the Twitter zeitgeist and make your quiz super contemporary.
  9. Upload: You can always kick it old school – and go for the classic option of uploading your own images. This is a good choice if you have your own subscription to a stock photo library like Shutterstock or iStockphoto.
