I'm trying to describe my day with a GIF but then the GIF comes out all statiky and unreadable.

If you can't see the GIF, it turned out all whiteish in some areas.

I wouldn't refer my group to anyone with this problem anymore. I haven't helped anyone fix a GIF in over two months, even though they keep posting. I have plenty of time, but a severe lack of motivation and a terribly depressed mentality.

Crunchyroll should just fix this issue themselves.

That's fine, it's just to keep people from being disappointed in the end.

Ah, this question again. Let's see if I can help you...

The easiest way to fix this is the host the .GIF image on an external site and use the IMAGE BB Code instead of uploading the GIF to the Crunchyroll servers.

Example


One of the largest free image hosts is Imgur [http://imgur.com/]. They have a GIF file size limit, but we'll get to that later. So, here's my finished embedded GIF using Imgur as a host:



If you Quote my post, you'll see the BB code, the IMG tags, that were used to embed that image.

1.) Upload your .GIF image to Imgur.
2.) After it uploads, you'll see something like this:



See the Red Box I've drawn in on the right hand side? That's the BB Image Code for forums. Click on it to Copy it (or Right Click and Copy, etc.).

3.) Paste the BB Code into your Crunchyroll forum post.
4.) Done.

Now, Imgur has a GIF file size limit that you might run into when trying to upload large GIFs. Another site to use for larger GIF files is Minus [http://minus.com/], I don't use Minus a lot because they can be pretty slow sometimes, but they don't have a GIF file size limit.

Do not use PhotoBucket. They have bandwidth limits for free accounts.

Also don't "hotlink" off other web sites (except Tumblr). Hotlinking is taking the direct link of the image from a website and wrapping the IMG tags around it to embed in the forums. That's considered rude and many sites will block you from doing it. Tumblr does not. You can hotlink to images/GIFs on Tumbr sites.

There are other free images hosts, but I'm not going to list them all as it wouldn't be constructive. I hope some of that helped. Let me know if you need clarification on any part of my tutorial.

Cheers.

Okay, so let's say you have a direct link to a Tumblr GIF (or any GIF from another source), and you don't want to type out the IMG BB code tags every time. Do this:

Here's a direct link to a GIF hosted on someone's Tumblr:

- http://25.media.tumblr.com/6380f3a5fe734d6b9c1bcc418cffd6ce/tumblr_mi734wc4He1qbvovho1_500.gif

That's on my Clipboard. I just need to Paste it somewhere useful so that it'll show up as an embedded image. Look at the toolbar above the Crunchyroll forum box:



See where my crappy blue arrows are pointing to in the image above? That's the Image button. Click that. That'll pop up a dialogue box with a place to Paste in the GIF/Image URL. Do that and click OK.

That will automatically wrap that URL with IMG tags. And you're done.

Check out Puush. They are the most awesomest.



Mfw I found puush.

You install and just right click any image in your folders. It uploads it and automatically puts the link on your clipboard. It also takes quick desktop screenshots, etc.

That's Yuzuko from Yuyushiki and the background is from Evangelion.
When I first saw the gif, I knew who Yuzuko was but I didn't know where the background was from... until I searched the image on google.
