    Ok, so I thought since everyone else is doing it, I'd add a signature onto my posts and feautre a little picture with it.
    I've got the pic and tried downloading it twice from my computer, but each time it says "unable to save image".
    The pic size is 509 X 325 snd its 14.8kb in size.
    According to the note in the part of my User CP that allows me to post a sig, the pic has to be 500 X 100 OR 19.5kb, whichever is smaller.
    So I figure I got it on file size, but it still won't accept the pic.

    What am I doing wrong?

    For our trivial pursuit game about this site:
    Question: "What question had been asked the most on WW2Aircraft.net"
    Answer: "How do I put that damned picture in my siggy?"

    Marcel,

    I did change it (as you can see), however, that pic wasn't really all that large.
    463x287.
    It was the height that I couldn't comprimise much more than you saw in that pic.
    I think the "edit signature" page actually lists a size of 500x100, but doubling that height doesn't seem to hurt things too much.
    The current pic is 509x198 and I think it fits much better into the post (wouldn't you agree?)....I just wish I could come up with a better tag line for it.

    Nice addition Wurger. Most of the sigs do have the users name on them.

    The picture looked big. Mine is actually slightly too big, too, bit no-one notices as the lower part is the same as the background :lol:
    I love the pup, Elvis. Good show.
