    Just a little reminder to everyone that the combined total of the size of both avatars and sigs should be no more than 80k. [​IMG]

    How can we check the total size, is it just saving the picture then using properties or is there a smarter way?

    In Firefox you just rightclick on the image and select 'View Image Info'.

    Using Opera you can right click on the pic and select Image Properties to view the size, not sure about other browsers but they're probably similar.

    edit : Beat to the punch!

    In Chrome you can't check file sizes, so you'll have to right click -> save as

    Pretty sure you can check file sizes in IE

    I think there's an extension for Chrome that allows for viewing file properties in the browser, I'm not sure what it was called though... Otherwise, I don't think it's THAT hard to code so someone her could maybe make an extension [​IMG]

    An easy way to reduce the total file size is by saving in a slightly lower quality file type

    Lol I think this was a way to get people not to do what i did.

    THANKS FOR NOTHING! :wtf:

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, I put 3 flash games in my sig and they were all over 1.6 MB :wtf: and they had to remove it, so don't have that happen to you.

    Should have read the rules from the start, it's not like they haven't always been there.

    There is an easier way to do that with Opera if the name of the picture isn't too big;

    That's visual size, not filesize.

    What's the point of this thread? Can't the forum software handle avatar and signature restrictions by itself?

    Code:
    [flash=width,height]linktoswffilegoeshere[/flash]
    Make sure it does NOT autoplay or make any annoying sounds.
