To use a Simple Tag just place it in your reviews content.
Example: if you put {sr_score} in your review, when the review is displayed on the frontend {sr_score} will be replaced with the reviews score/rating.

Note: {sr_thumbnailURL} and {sr_imageURL} only contain the URL of the image.
To display the image in your review you must put the tag as the image source, example <img src=’{sr_imageURL}’/>.
If you are using a WYSIWYG editor to enter your content (template, review etc) you will have to switch into code/HTML mode to add {sr_imageURL} as the source.
