    How do I measure the filesize? I recently got my ava and sig removed since it's overlimit, although both of them has the same width and height compared to other sig and ava

    And to staffs, how do you know our sig and ava's filesize, is the filesize written under our name? i'm curious [​IMG]

    Ummm... You could right click the picture you're using both in Windows and in the web browser and click properties. Look for the file size.

    May I know what matters in a filesize? I noticed somebody's sig (IDK, I forgot his name, apparently his sig is a pic of an anime girl with eyepatch), his sig is higher and wider, and yet his isn't overlimit?

    The rules said that height and width can be a bit over as long as it isn't too distracting or something like that. But file size is an issue due to the fact that not everyone has a high speed connection.

    O, and another thing, My current ava is actually 100x100, but somehow GBATemp forced it to 100x140, not good at all, what can I do?

    here's the pic

    damn, sig removed again! That's the only sig I can find less than 50kb [​IMG]
    Visually large? .............. really, with the right height and width, it's overlimit, with the right size, it's too large, what can I do?

    Where you set your ava, tell it 100x100 pixel size

    Post the sig here. I'll optimize it to be the right dimensions and filesize for you.

    That image isn't in a particularly good aspect ratio for a signature, but here's a quick try at bannerizing it:

    Yeah, I know what you mean, that's why I used the whole image, each part of it is connected to each other, and 450x346, a bad day. Well, gonna use it, until I have Photoshop and edit it myself

    We don't allow visually large sigs as they increase the amount of scrolling up/down the topics a member would have to do, so to decrease the chances of people being pissed off this rules is inforced (I'm sure you're not the only one who would like to have larger sigs but everyone has to follow the rules [​IMG]).

    Everything is mentioned in the forum rules and tbh I can't comprehend how you still are not aware of this after the amount of time/posts you've had on this site [​IMG]

    I was bored so i quickly done a couple for you from that image.

    I know the bottom 2 don't really look any different but they do have different drop shadows.

    I left a plain white one in case you want to put other images in with it, if you even decide to use it that is.

    I just love how the staff here remove sigs that are 20 KB over limit instead of the hundreds of referral links floating around. [​IMG]
