    L'autre image est plus drôle que celle-ci. When the word is masculine, celui-ci. L'autre livre est plus cher que celui-ci. (also: plural: ceux-ci, masculine plural and celles-ci, feminine plural). – Lambie Jan 18 '17 at 18:52

The other picture is funnier (than this one)

would be translated as:

L'autre image est plus amusante (que celle-ci).

"Celui-ci, celle-ci, ceux-ci, celles-ci" are "pronoms démonstratifs" that need to agree in gender and number with the thing they refer to. Here, "image" being feminine, in the singular, "celle-ci" is what you need, and for the plural "celles-ci".

    C'est un forum de traduction maintenant?? Pronouns aren't adjusted, they are used....They are called demonstrative pronouns in English. Talking about mixing it up. [I don't mean confuse by mix up] – Lambie Jan 18 '17 at 19:05
