I have the little camera, but just can't select it to insert a gif.

Indeed. But, some images seem to need to use of a website such as Photobucket or Imgur before it allows you to paste properly. Sometimes, I even have to open up a photobucket image in a new tab - then paste. This forum seems to be somewhat, how to put it nicely, befuddled when it comes to importing images.
I find once you open the image or gif in your browser it works most of the time, but you are right sometimes this site just will not accept the image no matter how many times you try.
Normally i just open the image, right click, copy, right click paste..
I can't work out why forum gets beffudled. I don't think it is image type - ie png or JPEG or whatever else there is. My guess is that it has to do with the source location of file that you are trying to copy
It probably is the source, the image will always show in your post after you paste it but when you publish the comment sometimes its gone, so it looks like the site has some sort of filter on it
Yes -- I think the work around of using photobucket --> dissolves image of original source. My brain hurts. And Im on my phone, so posting an image of a brain exploding would not occur until Christmas
IPhone and Ipad make this forum very hard work.
Mine doesn't work either and I can't get the copy paste idea to work even on images stored on my computer.
I have found images stored on my PC must go through Photobucket to be able to be posted. Also, no one has their 'image insert' enabled. It is a forum mystery. A couple of weeks ago I sent one of Atvi Assists a PM explaining picture problems - he/she has passed feedback on to site team.
You can't copy past images form pc to interwebs. You need to upload them on a picture site.
