The picture has a copyright. It's owned by lisakelly.org - the photo gallery. When you try to save it by right click and save a warning will appear.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

soo, I have uploaded my pic now, modified.
Actually I have a question, is it ok now? Because on my computer it shows me that it has 99,2 KB, then on photobucket suddenly it has 116123 bytes but here as a sig link it has 101657 bytes.

How is this possible? *lost*

I'm not sure why it's switched sizes, however, you're siggie pic [275px X 130px & 99.27 KB] is within allowed limits of 300 X 300 pixels & 100 KB.

Try this website, courtesy of Ali: Reduce your file size.

I am not sure if this is answering your question or not, but 1KB=1024 bytes, so 99,2 KB (99.2 KB) would be 101657 bytes. 116123 bytes would be 113,4 KB (113.4 KB) which would be over the new limit.

The size issue may have something to do with compression settings on your computer meaning your computer is compressing the file, but when you copy it out of the computer to photobucket it is transfering it in uncompressed format thus showing up on photobucket at 116123 bytes, not the compressed version of 101657 bytes.

I hope that helps with the changing size issue.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

Thanks kingwidgit, Sage, Ali and lupislune

Well, I don't know why my computer is compressing things without my permission (grrrr) but however, I hope it's within the size limits now. Maybe that was also the problem with the initial file, because on my computer it had the allowed size but as the sig, it was a bit too big.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

okay, quick question (from someone who knows absolutely zero about computers): When I go to upload an image, it says that the following file extensions are allowed:.gif , .jpg , .png , .PNG , .JPG , .GIF , .jpeg. What does this mean? And if I have an image saved to a graphics program, how would I get it into my signature? Thanks.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

Me thinks you can find a lot of answers in post #1 of this thread.

When you have uploaded the image, look at the data box in Your Images. It tells you everything you need to know before inserting it into the signature.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

When I try to uplode a picture it says: "File extention is not alowed".
What does that mean? I've checked that the image is the right size. It's 98.5 KB, and 200*150 pixels.
I've reread the tutorial, and I still don't know what to do.
So would someone please help me? I know pretty much nothing about these sorts of things, so please explain simpley...

Extension means the ending like .jpg, .bmp etc. You probably tried to upload an image with a wrong ending.

Following are allowed:
.gif , .jpg , .png , .PNG , .JPG , .GIF , .jpeg

When you try to upload i.e. a .psd file then you will receive this warning.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

Just save it under another file-extension. I don't know what for your programme you use but usually it's "Save under" and then choose one of the extensions I mentioned above.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

Click the File menu tab, then Save As, under the document name there should be a drop down menu of file types.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

thank you very, very much!
I've literally been working on that for hours!


But for some reason the signature won't show up, even though it saved it....hmm...

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

You need to copy the URL with the Image tag in your sig.

Go to "Magical Me" -> "Edit Signature" -> "Your images".
There should be your pic you uploaded. On the right side is a "image link".
Copy this one and go back to the page where you clicked on "your images". Under the link is a empty box. Past the copied code there and save the signature.

This should do it.

Re: Tutorial: Signature Help

I really have no idea how I got this picture into my signature. Is the picture ok or do I need to change anything? I noticed when I scroll the mouse over it, it has a link. Is there a way that I can fix this?
