    Well then! This was entertaining but I'm no where near my 72 virgins and grasping the pebble. Google Chrome has a search function where you can click content, images, video or something else. Is that Google + that is going away in April? Otherwise I don't have Google +. In other words, I don't know what the flock that even is.

    And there we go..........posted as a jpg thumbnail instead of a gif file. As I said, this does not always happen, but it's annoying about when it works or won't.

    Google Chrome is a web browser that's free to download from the internet. It sounds like you are already using Google Chrome.


    Google plus is a 'social network' that didn't become popular and is being discontinued. They tried to copy Facebook.

    Wish I could help you but a couple of years ago I wanted to use an animated background on my Profile page here. It only gave the option of uploading from your computer and each time I uploaded my .gif image it was turned into a jpg.


    I finally just gave up on it and never tried again, but I know it can be done because Trinnity has animation on her Profile page.

    If you read my earlier comments at #5 and #9, you'll see that I am having problems even posting my .gifs using a URL. I haven't uploaded from the computer since my early attempts a couple of years ago. I hope someone sees your problem and can help you.

    What drives me nuts is sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Posting by trial and error sucks. It's embarrassing when gif posts as a thumbnail sometimes, a thumbnail doesn't begin to convey what an animated frame will.........can even change the meaning.

    That's what upsets me too. For a couple of weeks if I pasted a link into a reply it would not activate when posted. Now it is working again. The gremlins are fiddling with stuff again, lol.


    If you had a webhost URL to your image you could paste it to me here and I could post the image. Then you could just copy and paste it where you want. I believe MrMike posted a free webhosting site, or you could use a site like Imgur;
