I'm currently working on a signature picture for once I have enough (donated!) credits to purchase one.

Anyways, I was wondering: What's the maximum size for a signature picture in pixels, and what's the maximum size in kilobytes for a signature picture? I can't find any explanation on the user cp page.

Also, I have yet to see a GIF signature... are they supported? That's what I'm currently making.

Does anyone have any suggestions on making a GIF signature picture be under the allowed size without losing too much detail?

Anyways, thanks for the answers :) !

Well the size is 500x80 and the Kb is 50 I believe. As for GIF there some here. Insane has made one with the Apple girl and Sivy has one with scrolling Matrix code behind it.

:lsduel: :duel:

Thanks...

Hmm, 50kb sounds rather small to me... My avatar alone is over 2kb. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to work around it :).

Thanks for the extreemly fast replies :)!

*EDIT*

Whoa, I just noticed that the your sig picture is nearly HALF of the max kb size... That's a bit disheartening :(.

Anyone have any suggestions on making a GIF file take up less kilobytes?

Thanks agian! :)

Well, I once made a sig pic, black and white...that took up 80 kb....dunno why tho. Anyways, I dont have much help for you, except, dont put super high quality pictures in your sig pic. I mean, look at DarkLighter's...He pretty much has the best sig pics around here, but they are under 50 KB.

That page has .gif and .jpeg crunchers. Just put in the file, and it will crunch it down to a smaller file size. It only lets you view the first 2 with "membership" but the rest can still be saved onto your computer, if you just click on the link, view the image, and save it. ;)
