Hi everyone,

I would like to ask everyone to please limit the size of their sig pics. I see no reason that a sig pic should be larger than 40K, but certainly they should all be less than 100K.

We still have a lot of modem users who like to see the images but get punished on the really large ones. So, to be fair to them before they shutoff the image option in their preferences, let's see if we can't downsize some of our pics to make things easier.

If you don't have the software/knowhow to optimize your images, just ask in the forum and someone will most likely fix it for you and send it to you.

I really appreciate your diligence on this. Thanks!

Convert from .bmp to .jpg and then downsize using the Image -> stretch/skew tools in mspaint and check the properties of your image until you reach 40k.

Hey Bob as you know my puter knowledge is none, just wondered if I fit in guidelines or not. Let me know and if need be I will get someone to change.

Thanks

Bob,
I think a brief refresher on how to tell the size of your pix for those of us who are computer ninnies, might be in order. ::

Thanks

Yeah, that's fine of course! At least I hope I don't hear complaints about text lengths!

Mark, if you're using a Windows box, you can right-click on an image and hit "Properties"

I turned sigs off awhile ago... much nicer. InfoPop does not have the box during posting that you can check on and off to include your signature or not, it's a nice feature on other sites because then you don't have to see the same big picture after every post or reply in a thread.

I host from cardomain and it seems that no matter what I do It stays the same size. What can I do to make it smaller?

You're fine - it's optimized well already and is only 15K...

Thanks!
