So here is my question:

Can someone please explain to me without sending a million links (because I have been searching) on how to load a gif onto my profile or forum? I just need simple instructions. Its been ages since I have used one on such a setup and I am not computer savvy, unfortunately. (Sigh. Its my fatal flaw. )

So with that being said, if some kind soul has the patience to explain such a feat to me I would be very appreciative!

I am sure I will facepalm myself later for making this issue seem far too difficult for my book-smart brain.

You should be able to find tutorials for everything you need to know there. The "How to identify a GIF's problem" link arguably being the most useful since it tells you how to fix the most common issues. Though the GIMP tutorial may be handy as well.

If you're just putting a GIF in a forum post there's not much to it. Make sure there's no transparency, upload it and you're done. For an avatar you'll also want to crop it into a square and make sure the file size is < 1MB before uploading it to your profile.

What I do is put its URL in the image uploader thing instead of uploading straight from my gif folder

Copy the picture/gif link and put [*img] before the link and [/img*] after the link. Remove the asterisk/star symbol (*)



For example the gif in this post
Step 1:The Link http://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire3/8934280f4f820c025ef8e10bb88da0f41462625051_full.gif
Step 2: Add [*img] [/img*]
Result:[*img]http://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire3/8934280f4f820c025ef8e10bb88da0f41462625051_full.gif[/img*]

Remember to remove the *
