you just copied the wrong link from imageshack. For sigs you want the very last link on the list that they give u

Maybe I'm out of date on the Sig size restrictions, but I think 300 pixels high is too big... might have to shrink it some to be allowed :?.

Not to mention over 100Kb in file size is also a no-no... So, you need to adjust your signature image to be smaller than 750 pixels in width, 200 pixels in height and 100 Kbytes in file size.

Close, but no cigar ZeBomb ... the dimensions are fine at 500x200 ... but the file size is showing as a whopping 166.99k :no:

As a point of note to all new guys, most if not all forums have rules for the dimensions and file size of signatures ... best to check the limits allowed before creating or using your masterpieces.

Ya, PNGs are lame. Looks like the same quality picture for a much smaller size. Should be good to go now :D.

The main thing PNGs are good for is transparency. Unfortunately, the file size starts racking up. The only way to keep it under 100k (that I know of) is to posterize it and artificially turn the image into a palleted image (i.e. the image only contains a certain number of unique colors).
