I think what you need to do is just resize your pic. I don't ever use paint, so I'm not sure if you can resize there or not. There's a free photo viewer/shop called irfan view that I use. But if you can resize it from paint that's cool. Other than that, just upload the pic on the edit sig page, insert the sig pic and save!

you can resize in paint. It is the stretch/skew option under the Image tab. It goes by percentage, so make sure both dimensions are increased by the same amount. However if you have a really small pic to begin with it won't be as clear if you blow it up huge. I did my siggy in Paint 'cuz I'm too stupid for photoshop LOL

aha! There is a size limit on siggy pics embedded in the board (thankfully). At the bottom of the box where you upload your pic it says:
Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 300 by 100 pixels or 2.0 KB (whichever is smaller).

That pic can definitely get bigger though. Mines larger than that and fits just fine.

it may also have to do with whether you upload your pic or link to it

Off subject...IncrediBalt in your signature you say you love your FORD Aspire...Do you know that the FORD Aspire was made by KIA?
