The thing you posted is a *page*, not an image.

Therefore you have to use the LINK (globe with chain link) button, not the postcard.

https://giphy.com/gifs/movie-reactio...-4baoNZ5Qo8dX2

You could right-click on the GIF that's on that page and "save image as..." to your PC, then post it in the same way you did the reciprocating engine.

Thusly: giphy.gif

*OR*
right-click on the image, choose "copy image address" and then use THAT in the Postcard:

https://media.giphy.com/media/4baoNZ5Qo8dX2/giphy.gif

... notice how the above address ends in ".gif"

I don't know... i don't have an iPhone. (*)

On an Android phone, it's easy to extract the needed info from that page.
In Firefox, i just long-press on the image ... a menu appears
The choices include "Copy Image Location" ... which grabs the info the PostCard wants.
Then i just Paste it into the PostCard's query box.

The page's address is https://media.giphy.com/media/4baoNZ5Qo8dX2/

The file's name is giphy.gif

Glue them together to get the postcard-suitable address:

https://media.giphy.com/media/4baoNZ5Qo8dX2/giphy.gif

(right-clicking on the image in a "real" PC gets that entire line as the "image address")

In the message just before this one, you were using the LINK icon instead of the POSTCARD

( URL mark-up instead of IMG )

That's why it "didn't work"
