1) Find an image you like. If using Google image search, make sure you've opened the image in it's own tab as shown:



2) Right click the image and select 'Copy image address' (works in Chrome):



3) To insert into a post, first hit reply:



4) Then hit the little picture icon as shown:



5) This puts image tags into your post:



6) Put your cursor in the middle of the two tags and right click, paste the copied image link:



7) Hit post. You're done.

8) Once you become pro, you can just type [img][/img] into the quick reply box and paste in the link avoiding steps 3) to 7).

How do you post gifs in replies? Am sure I've seen some people do it.

I just had to be really sarcastic using words, a gif would better convey my contempt.

I find https://imgur.com/ to be easiest.

Go to 'new post' in the top left-hand corner and drop the gif in the box.

Click the ellipses next to 'copy link', get share links, and copy the BBcode link.

Paste the link in here - job done.
