Choosing a GIF
Once you click on the camera icon, a blue pop-up box with a search bar and examples of animated GIFs will display. You can either choose one of the trending GIFs or search for a particular one. For this example, we are searching for "Disney characters" GIFs to add to our trivia question.
Once you've selected your desired GIFs, they will automatically be added to the specified answer options on the Questions tab. Added GIFs will display to the left of the answer choices on the Projector View and under the question's text on the Mobile View.
Removing an Answer's Text Label
If you do not wish to display any text for your Answer Image options, you can remove the labels for your answer options by clearing out any text from the answer option's text field. First, click on the answer option's text field directly or click on the blue Edit button with a pencil icon to bring down the answer option's Edit Panel. Next, highlight all of the answer text.
Next, delete the text content by pressing the Backspace or Delete key on your keyboard to remove the text. Finally, click on the green Save button or simply press the Enter key to save your changes. Once you've cleared out the text field, three dashes (---) will appear to indicate that the answer option has no text label.
