Default Unanswered: Signature issue... picture coming out too small?

Hey guys,

So I tried to upload a picture for my signature earlier. The picture was this;

Click the image to open in full size.

So I saved it originally as a PSD, then as a PNG. I tried uploading the PNG and it came out reaaalllly small so I tried uploading a JPEG version. That still came out reaaaallly small.

Can any of you guys help? Thanks

The limit for a signature picture is 150 tall by 450 pixels wide. If it is above that, it automatically shrinks it to match the size requirements. Same thing with avatars. Which in the case for avatars you have a pic you wanna use but it's too big and you can't resize it it shrinks the image automatically but it still looks clear. It's doesn't effect the quality in any way.

So you may want to maybe cut out some of the picture to make it 150x450 pixels or smaller if you want people to still be able to read the text on it which I'd imagine you do. xD

Hope I helped! =)

The size is the right size I tried saving it as a bmp and it's still coming out small and it won't let me save it as a gif.

Thank you two for your help though!

I just copied and pasted the image to MS Paint and checked the size, and it said it was 626 pixels wide and 352 pixels tall.
*Shrugs*

And you're welcome! =)

That one is that big xD I just saved a copy which is under the requirements (so it wouldn't automatically resize it), put it in my signature, and it is still coming out weird...

the problem can be that you are resizing it 150 by 450 right? well the picture has more width than length...so when you resize it to that, the face kind of sterches and looks weird hehe...I just resized it to you, a little smaller that 150 by 450...but not so small and not bigger, just the right size so it wont affect the banner
