As per Karen's suggestion, I am posting instructions on how to insert GIFs into your messages (GIF means "graphics interchange format"... which basically means it's an image that is usually animated).

First you will need to find a website that hosts the GIFs. I usually use:

http://plaatjessite.mine.nu/index-engels.htm

and (these are smilies)
http://www.watchfarscape.com/forums/mis ... howsmilies

Next:

1. Find the GIF (image) you wish to insert in your message
2. Right-click on it and select "properties"
3. Highlight and copy the URL (where it says "Address (URL)" (short cut for "copy" is "control C")
4. Click on the Img box at the top of your message, under Subject
5. Paste the URL (short cut for "paste" is "control V")
6. Click on the Img box again
7. Make sure there are no spaces between the "img" functions and the URL

Do a Preview and see if it works!

Thanks, Karen!

Susan, you are doing everything right but it seems that particular site/gif does not allow direct linking so the gif does not appear. I removed it from my list (sorry about that). Try it with the first link I provided.

For places that don't allow direct linking, you can set up your own page at a place like

www.photobucket.com

I keep some of my favourite blinikies there.

Hey! Neat, it worked.
I wonder why it didn't work the other times.

For this one, it looks like you were showing the address of the web page that showed the image, and not the image file itself. The image file would have to have name.gif at the end, I believe, and the code above only goes to the web page.

(Storm - correct me if I'm wrong!)
