    I'm having some trouble too. I made a banner in photoshop that I want to put in my sig, but it's saying it's too large. The original file is 55.1kb, and I can save it smaller but I can only get it down to about 23kb, and it looses the quality of the pic, and that's still over the 2kb limit. The actual size of the pic is only 404 by 151, which is within the restrictions. So my question is, how can I make it small enough that I can add it to my sig without affecting the quality of the picture. Is that even possible?

    Sometimes the format of the picture makes it a larger file size. You can change the format by "saving as" and convert say a GIf image to a JPEG and it very well be a much smaller file size.
    The advantage of JPEG is that it can carry a smaller file size than GIF when used in storing photographs and images with a wide variety of shading.
    Here are two images as examples. The first is a GIF and is 2.58 KB. The second is the same image as a Jpeg and is 1.62 KB.

    The note says: The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 2.0 KB (whichever is smaller).
    So it doesn't have to be both, the problem must be somwhere else I think...

    Roland would have understood.

    Argh - has it changed to 500x100, I only read the first post to see what size I was allowed!

    Talk to Matt, he might be able to get it up for you. I've had trouble with them in the past too.

    Thanks.
    To battle SPAM (which I am sure you are not) we had to set a 5 post minimum to use the bells and whistles.

    Feel free to go and introduce yourself and stuff like that, you'll be there before you know it.

    And this will probably be merged into a thread in The Dogan before too long.

    Welcome to the site!
