# 1 Forum graphics question
08-01-2012, 04:20 AM
Hi peeps

I've seen a lot of forum posts from guys and gals that have an image of there ship or capital at the bottom of there posts.

I was curious as to how it's done. Or what the technical name for this image/process is.


Thanks

Go to your forum User CP, click Edit Signature, scroll down to Signature Picture and choose between uploading one from your PC or linking to a webhost (Photobucket etc) with your picture of choice - notice the maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 150 pixels or 195.3 KB (whichever is smaller).

Then click 'insert signature picture', and [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] will appear in the text box; this is your picture. Click preview to get an idea of how it will look, and save it if you like it.

I use Macromedia (now Adobe) Fireworks for all my image editing, since it was new. It's rather expensive though as is their more popular Photoshop. There are great free alternatives to MS Paint, like GIMP.

I had a really neat signature image (personal opinion) back before the forum's changed. But I lost about 50% of my artwork when I failed to make sure my backups took hold on DVD. Stupid software I used burnt blank discs and closed them as though they were full. I didn't find out until I had reformatted and re-installed my OS... So, the one I use now, I threw together in about 10 minutes.

I use an eight-year-old version of Photoshop for my signature editing needs. As you can see, it works fine.
