If you see any such animations that you want to use you need to right click on them and save them to your computer. You then need to upload the picture to a photohosting site such as Photobucket or Tinypics (you can get an account free of charge).

Once you've done that you then get a code for each picture that you can paste to the board. It's a lot easier than it sounds - really it is. :wink:
