    Hello all once again.

    I know the GBAtemp size limit for avatar + sig is 50 kb, and I see lots of people with a sig and avatar. My question is, how do you get your images such a low size? I make a sig, same size as yours, and it's ALWAYS over 50kb. I managed to get this one just under the limit, but it's much lower quality than the original.

    Examples: http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b127/sal...SPaperMario.png (92kb)
    http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b127/sal.../GrungeAQUA.png (84kb)
    http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b127/sal.../GrungeFIRE.png (74kb)

    Please heal, I have an idea for a new sig and avatar, but I'm sure it will total over the limit.

    Photoshop --> Save As JPG --> Set the compression settings until the size is

    I'll try using JPG, but I'll miss my PNG :'(

    I like it, but I think it would look better without the text [​IMG]

    Agreed. The text interferes with the swirly roundness of the round swirly thing. Aside from that, it's nice.
