We ask that you keep your images relatively small. As a rule, please do not exceed 100h x 400w pixels and 35k for a signature image. We also ask that you do not use animated signatures. This will ensure that the forums load quickly for all users.

I personally don't like images in signatures. Is there a way to turn them off at all?

They don't really serve much purpose except to slow things down. I mean, if you want a picture, thats what the avatar image is for...
I don't really care if you've got an Athlon 2 Billion with 1 trigabyte of RAM and a GeForce 1.

I mean honestly....

To turn off viewing signature files:

My Control > Options > Board Settings > Board Display Settings >

Do you wish to view members signatures when reading topics? Set to NO

That's it.

These new guidelines make me very sad.

My Signature is a regular banner of 468x60 pixels (www standard size) and has been uploaded almost a year ago. It is not animated and only has 22K. To me it is a piece of my art and will not be changed. If it needs to be taken off, please do so and remove me from the forums in total including all of my other previously submitted art such as cartoons on the threads, eCard images and Cafepress products.

Thank you

Sorry my friends, love you all but this hurts.

Majandi they are not new Guidelines they have been posted before.
Everyone has had time to comply with them and we seam to be running into bigger and bigger signatures each week so we have had to step in and make everyone aware of the Size rules.
We are sorry that you want to take this course of action and I hope you will reconsider and understand our reasoning for this action.

uhm...
just a thought;
400x100= 400 00
468x 60= 280 80

isn't the total of the sum more important?
or am i wrong?

This has been in effect since 26th November 2004. and was reposted in General Announcements on Dec 27 2004 for all to see Signature Tags
To make it easer for people to actually see the Max dimensions we have also included a sample image.

If I try to put in a sig that measures 400 x 800, will it automatically resize to 100 x 400 like it does when you choose an avitar image?

I believe the board is still set up to automatically adjust signatures to the guideline size, yes.

I think the forum will truncate the signature to the appropriate size, but not reduce it, so it is advisable to reduce the signature to the appropriate size instead smile.gif

OK Ayli, I will. It will take a little maneuvering, but I will make the effort. My goofy computer doesn't have a single program that will resize for me. I know that's very hard to believe but true. My old computer does and I will just use my trusty jump drive and transfer it to the old computer, resize it, then save it back to the jumpdrive and put my new siggy on my new computer and Voila! Maybe I'll have time tonight. That's a good time spender in between loads of laundry! Ha! Sorry for the rambling whistling.gif , thanks for the answer. biggrin.gif

There are many free image programs that can resize. A fairly good one is Irfanview. I use that myself, and it is very simple to use as well. If you wanted to spend some money, Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop are two popular programs that allow you to do even more such as beveled edges , different finishes and textures, etc.... I believe both do offer demos that you can try out also.

Irfanview is great as Kurtg said another one I like and use is
Paint.NET Linky or Here

Paint.NET is image and photo manipulation software designed to be used on computers that run Windows.
It supports layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools.
And it's free I always like that word. whistling.gif
