how do you insert pictures to left?

I’m new to forums and I need someone to tell me how to insert pictures or small animations to the left where your name is and stuff.

find the picture, if you find it on google you can just click it so it’s the only thing on the page, and then copy and paste it into your profile settings. If you have the picture saved in “my pictures” right click it, hit open with internet explorer, and then copy and paste the link into your profile settings.
