Posted on September 13, 2018

To add a photo to a new post, comment, or question, select the camera icon in the lower right corner of the update box:


From here, click on the ‘Choose Photo’ button to upload an image from your device. Keep in mind that images can only be posted if they’re in a .jpg, .png, or .gif format.

Once you’ve chosen your photo, you have the option to tag it by picking an existing category tag or by adding your own new category tag:

Feel free to include text with your photo by typing in the text box, or simply post your photo as is.

From here, you’ll see a pop-up window where you can search through a library of available GIFs using keywords like ‘smile’ or ‘happy’. To add the GIF to your post, simply click or tap the gif:
