Does anyone know how to insert an animated GIF on a reply here? I'm a terrible Luddite, I know. Just thought occasional bouncing boobs are a necessity ...

AJ posted a quick guide here :

ie.  http://awesomegifs.com/

right click the gif,  a table will show up, down the bottom is 'properties', left click properties, another table shows up, copy the 'address-URL' which should end with 'gif' ,  paste the URL  in the green TV looking thing when you reply to a thread.   Hope that made sense?

eg.



I think Alex (General Kahn) has a more in depth post somewhere but I can't remember what thread  Embarassed

I'd avoid hotlinking (which some site owners dislike because of bandwidth usage).
Best to link it via a photo sharing site such as photobucket. Grab the link from your saved Gif and paste it into your post.

yeah, I use Google chrome on my PC.  I just right click on the gif, click copy image URL and then paste it into the normal tv box thing that you use to post an image.



but i haven't managed to work out how to do it on my phone though  scratch without downloading the image, then uploading it to Photobucket and linking it there.
Which is a bit of a hassle and a bit time consuming. Although your right Paul about the use of bandwidth and also links can disappear after a while this way. Problem is though you end up filling your image hosting account with nothing but gifs of bouncing boobs and you have no room left for anything else  :cool laugh:

yep now you've got the gif in photobucket, click on the IMG tab in the right hand column . it will then say 'copied', then paste into the green tv box thing on your reply toolbar on TIG, like you would to post a pic  Smile
