Hello!

I notice now that Photobucket has a handy little resizing tool that offers choices of sizes for pictures, i.e., message board, website, thumbnail, etc.

My concern is that on my home computer, I have a monster screen so all of my pictures look huge, but then on my laptop, they're not. What is a good size to post here? I'm trying to be cognicent of people with dial-up and I don't want to post posters, either. lol

Is it the 320 x 240 size that's preferred?

Thanks.

Anything under, say, 500 pixels wide is usually fine.

I compress to 448 x 336, but I do that on my computer (Micorsoft Office Picture Manager-it is their website setting) because I have dail-up and it is faster to upload my pictures onto Photobucket that way. :)

320 x 240 is too small, we need bigger pictures of than that of Maggy and Hugito. :D

I was kinda wondering about pics. too. :) I use PhotoBucket and I've tried to upload into my siggy several different pics. I've also tried to get different avatars in but they aren't being accepted. I'm going to continue working on this today. I have to keep adding my siggy (which is really small) into attachments after each post. :p

An avatar needs to be 60 pixels square or smaller, and saved as a .jpg or a .gif file. Have you tried that?

Yes I have went and resized all of the pics that I tried to use. It tells me it's not saved in the correct format and I'm pretty 'puter illiterate. :p How do you get your pics and siggys larger? I'm using the attachments and you can barely see the pics that I post.

I try to add some siggys that I have had made and they aren't the correct format either? How do I save them differently? Thanks. :)

I've not sure why you can't upload your picture as a siggy. Anyway, I cropped the white background out and saved as jpeg, if you load it onto PB and use as a siggy from there it should work ok.

p.s. I also saved for web to make it less kb

Ok, this isn't the pic. that I stuck into my signature but it'll work. At least I can see it. :) Thanks again for trying to help me but I think I'm hopeless. :p

In photobucket, I usually use the website size. I think it comes out to be a good size...not too big and not too small.
:D

I think that size is fine. To give you some idea of how it looks here is my current sig resized to 320x214.

Another important thing is, in my opinion, the size in kb, to always try to make it 25 or under.
