I copied your file into my photobucket and stuck it in your sig. You'll need to use your own file. I just did it to show and example of how it could look.

I just insert the img file from photobucket into my sig. I set the size before I copy the file. If you have a photo hosting site that you use, I would recommend uploading your pic to that site, size it to your liking, and copy/paste the img file into your sig........

ps. If you upload the pic from your computer, which is one of the sig uploading options, you'll see there is a size limit.....

That's how I did mine too, [img] tags with the picture hosted at photobucket.

Not a problem Alky. Yeah, it's a little big. Like I mentioned, your sig pic is in "my" photobucket. It would be nice if you used your own photo hosting site, as I just put it out there as an example. Do you use photobucket or something similar?

I downsized your sig a little more....... Take a look.... It's just a matter of playing around with it

When you sign up at one of the sites, then you're able to upload your photos from your computer and display them when you want. It works good when you want to post pics in a post rather than using attachments from the forum. It gives you a bigger pic to show better detail. Like this:

Here's a 3rd downsize.. As you can see, the smaller you go you lose some of the picture quality.... If you like this size of pic, you can right click on pic and "save as". That's what I did with Jims original he posted of your car and played around with that........



Sorry, just playing around a little bit more......

No problem. Since you use photobucket I removed my file from your sig. It's back in your hands again...
