Are you uploading your pictures to MOCpages or are you linking to them from another site?

Straight to MOCpages

Then maybe you ought to try uploading it as you would a normal picture first.

You are being far from helpful. That was the first thing I've tried.

The uploader does not seem to like animated gifs, you will need to host them on another picture sharing site first, and share the html code in your moc. I normally use photobucket, but i beleive flickr allow animation too.

So how do I add a .GIF file to my pages?

That's a little complicated, but I'll tell you the steps...

1: Create a brickshelf account at http://www.brickshelf.com/. This will host the gif for you.

2: Upload your gif into a folder on brickshelf.

3: Write this code, only putting spaces where the word SPACE appears:

< a SPACE href = 'place your image url here' > < img SPACE src = "place your image url here again" SPACE border = 0 SPACE width = 500 SPACE height = 375 SPACE alt = "" >

4: Replace the obvious instructions of 'place your image url here' and 'place your image url here again'. Make sure you don't copy from the directory, make sure you click your image until you reach a blank pag with NOTHING but your image on it.

So copy from something like this: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/dcastdeclan/Gifs/abtoptimusprime.gif

Not from something like this: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=6021944

That help? Sorry I had to specify the spaces. The comment wouldn't post otherwise. :)

Right, here's all that explained.

Animated images need to be hosted somewhere else, yes. High quality images in general, really. The uploader's been improved, but it's still not that hot, I believe.

Now:
<img src="URL"></a>
This is what you need. That's it. No resizing, border, mouseover text or links. The URL (ending in .jpg, .png, .gif or whatever, instead of linking to the folder) goes in the spot marked, and all is done.

If you want to get fancier:
<a href=URL> <img src="URL" border="NUMBER" width="NUMBER" height="NUMBER" alt="TEXT"></a>

"A href" is the link to the image, so that when clicked, it'll lead there. Otherwise you just get a plain picture.
"Border" is the width of the border around the picture, in pixels.
"Width" is the desired width of the picture, in pixels. There's no point using it if you aren't resizing the image. "Height" is much the same. Keep proportions in mind when resizing; if you get these wrong, it can distort the picture. Don't scale up, it never ends well.
"Alt" is the mouseover text.

Should clarify things.

Thanks. I guess that I'm never good at teaching people things (especially over the net). You know what they say; two heads are better than one! :)
