    Copy/Paste Gifs

    A minor annoyance but hoping someone here can help.

    I find it near impossible to copy and paste Gifs from the source to another medium. For instance from this forum to Facebook, or from TheChive to a text (SMS), or from a google search to my email, etc.

    When I copy and paste it either just pastes a URL link or a static image of the gif.

    Any ideas or suggestions on how to properly plagiarize, er, I mean redistribute gifs?

    Thanks!

    Right click, copy image address, paste (image address/url).

    When pasting to the forum, you need to use BB Code Image Tags - that look like this:

    [img]https://teakdoor.com/computer-news/computer-news/computer-news/computer-news/.. [/img ]

    ...but without the spaces.

    Thanks Nev.

    Do you know how to paste from one source to another? Like a google search of a gif to send as a text for instance?

    When I try all I can seem to do is send a URL link, not the actual gif

    Download the image to your computer/phone/device first, then send the image from your computer/phone/device.

    ^I've had mixed results with that. Maybe it's some sort of DRM issue with the gif creator.
