Lightbulb GUIDE/HOWTO/TUTORIAL: Adding your signature images

Hey everyone, I know that quite a few people have been having trouble with the signature images, so here's a picture guide on both ways to add signatures to the forum!

Step 1 - Find the picture you want!
The picture can be one that you already have on your computer or one that has been generated by something like Glitterfly. Once you have decided on the image you want, you can save it to your computer (Red Option) or copy and paste the URL address (Blue Option)

Step 2 - Enter your UserCP
Just click this button at the top of the forum.
Click the image to open in full size.



Step 3 - Go to the Edit Signature Area
Scroll down in your UserCP and about 3/4 of the way down, click on "Edit Signature"
Click the image to open in full size.




Step 4 - Add the image to the forum (Image on your computer)
If you created the image yourself, or decided to download the image to your computer, then you'll want to click button #1 (Choose File) to select the image from your computer. Then, click button #2 (Upload) in order to upload the image from your computer to the forum.
Click the image to open in full size.




Step 4 - Add the image to the forum (Copied Web Address for Image)
If you copied the address for the image from a signature generator or some other website, just paste it into the box circled in blue. Make sure that you don't use the [IMG] tags around the web address, it should look something like the address in the box below.
Click the image to open in full size.




Step 5 - Insert the image
If you want to enter some text in your signature, type it in the editing window above where you just added your image information. Once you are done typing (or if you don't want to type anything), click the "Insert Signature Picture" link, circled below.
Click the image to open in full size.



Step 6 - Preview your signature
Just to make sure it all looks like you want it to, click the "Preview Signature" link to test it all out.
Click the image to open in full size.

This small section will show up above the text editing window. If you want to change things, just edit the words in the text edit window, or change the image by repeating the steps above.
Click the image to open in full size.



Step 7 - One more click!
You're almost done. Now that you're happy with the way it looks in the preview window, just click "Save Signature" and you're all set!
