Example Usage

+ make me laugh
- Hope this image cheers you up! ^image("https://i.giphy.com/l41lIioP4RFRmIVB6.gif")

Details

Ensure that the URL you are using is actually a URL to an image and not a website that contains an image.

Common examples of incorrect URLs might be Google Image search result URLs or pages that host images but are not of the raw image itself (e.g., double check this with Dropbox or GIPHY).

The URL should not be bounded by angle brackets (< or >).
