Is this okay?

(I took the white background out, not sure if that's what the maker was doing?)

yeah, they made it huge and I didn't want it to off-set the page. Thanks so much, Kay! :D

It's not really that big... just 700 pixels wide, but I did change your res to 300 vs 72 dpi and compressed it to make a smaller actual file (in MB). I also lightened Buster and black dog (color corrected) so they dont look so muddled. Hope this works for you.

yes, I know thanks. :) but there is a size limit here (25 kb) and I didn't want to break the rules of that.

If you ever need a program that resizes images, for free, look at Irfanview :)

thanks, I have that but I don't know how to use it. :o I do have jasc paint shop pro 9 but when I resize sigs/avatars it reduces the quality. :rolleyes:

After you resize with Paint Shop Pro, go to

effects > sharpen > sharpen

and sharpen it once or twice. DON'T use "sharpen more" because that usually OVER sharpens it. Well I mean use it if you'd like. ;)

Also MAKE SURE when you are saving as a .jpg click the "options" button on the "save as" screen and make sure the compression rate is a low number, 10 or less.

ok, I did that, thanks! :D but what I am confused on how do I do the compression rate 10 or less?? :confused:

When you go to file > save as

And select .jpg from the dropdown menu of file types

There is a button to the right that says "options...". If you click it, a window will pop up where you can change the compression rate

Here it is at 24K!

(It's easy to do in Photoshop, which is what I use, but it is an expensive program, so I don't expect everyone to have it!)

Guess you didn't like my resizing! :p


Maybe be under 25KB, but a bit too big in pixels, IMO.

It is easier resizing to 25KB in Photoshop...But if you do it in PSP the quality goes down and it looks really bad :\

Not necessarily. You just have to know what you're doing and how to alter the image to make it look good. I use PSP to resize all of my sigs, like the one I have now, and its below 25K. Of course doing it to larger images is harder.

oh no, I like it! :) i think the cream-colored background makes the siggie HUGE. :eek:
