    You can also make them clickable/linkable by having the url tags around the image tags:

    image http link

    I think the rules say to try to keep the sig around 500x80 pixels and <50KB big?

    Use .png or .gif compression for drawings and .jpg for photos.


    To resize/crop/compress/draw? images I suggest www.getpaint.net

    There's also photobucket.com if you want free image hosting.

    First you need to use a photo-editing program to resize it. Open it in Photoshop, Fireworks, MS Paint, or some other image editor and then find the option for "image size" in one of the tabs up top. Hopefully it defaults to scaleable, and then just edit the height to 80 pixels, and it will automatically edit the width for you.

    Now that you have a properly sized image, go to imageshack.us or photobucket like other people say, upload it there, then grab the link which says "direct link to image." Come back to PA and in the sig box enter new link.

    That may seem complicated, but it's really all fairly rote stuff. If you ask nice, you might even get another forumer to do the image resizing for you. It takes about 30-60 seconds tops (cuz it looks like your image might need some cropping, too).

    I resized it for you.

    Small I know, but it needs to fit within the signature restrictions that everyone else adheres to.

    Go to "Edit Profile" in the top right, and in the Signature field, put:
    [img]http://img75.imageshack.us/img75/1381/glen7.png[/img]
    

    That should work.
