So i got a lot of comments asking how to use gifs in journals so i will teach you all!
alternative text

1.) Ok step one find a gif of your choice (i usually look them up on google and on tumblr)
alternative text

2.) Copy the image address (you do this by right clicking the gif and click on "copy image address")
alternative text

3.) then when your on your journal put this address in
< img src="filename.gif" alt="alternative text" width=X height=Y >
(i put spaces in-between < and > so you can see the address just make sure you get rid of the spaces)  
alternative text

4.) where it says "filename.gif" put in the image address and with x and y put in the size you want (i usually use 300 or 200 for x and 200 or 100 for y)
alternative text  

5.) AND NOW YOU HAVE WONDERFUL GIFS FOR YOU JOURNAL!!!!!

Guys, if it's not working, you're doing something wrong because I literally just did it in my journal and it worked on the first time. Remember the spaces between the actual address and the < and > need to be taken out. Take out all of the spaces. It was literally said in this journal. Also in the filename spot, literally just copy and paste the url of the gif into there. Then where it has the width and height, put how big you want it. I usually use 300 for width, and 200 for height. 

And that's literally it. It's literally just a bunch of copy and pasting.

I followed the instructions and it still didn't work.

Ok, let's take this step by step then.

1. Take out the spaces after the < and >. So take out the space between the < and img, and the space between Y and >.
2. Go to your gif, right click, click copy image address.
3. Replace filename.gif with the image address. (KEEP THE QUOTATION MARKS ---> " ")
4. Put in dimensions of the gif where it says width and height (300 for width and 200 for height)

Make sure you're doing it in a journal and not a comment. It doesn't work in comments.

I can't help you any further unless I record my screen for you. You don't even need premium membership.

Here, take this one I premade. It has everything done, all you have to do is replace the gif with one of your choice. Copy and paste the link below into your journal and click preview. You should see a gif.
