First off, no idea where I was meant to post this question, so I apologise if it's totally wrong.

I'm looking for a place to host the new image for my signature. As you can probably see, at the moment photobucket has screwed me right off and stopped hosting unless I pay aha!

I uploaded the new image I want to use onto Imgur, but I can't seem to get it to work as a signature from there. Any suggestions helpful!

Upload the picture somewhere on the Temps and then add it to your profile. It's just easier ;P

imgur.com is one of the easy ways as Vins said. Upload the image to imgur, no need to make it public, then copy the image url (make sure it has .jpg or .png at the end of the URL, imgur likes to have its own URLs), and paste it using the hotlinking feature.

I'd agree with imgur.
Easy to upload to, just copy the i.imgur link and put it between image tags.
An example would be [img*]your i.imgur link[/img*]
Remove the asterisks from the image tags and bob's your uncle.

This, Exactly this... I couldn't see for looking!! I was looking across the top of the reply box hahaha!


I just use imgur, so I can use the same url everywhere.

For all these suggestions of Imgur, I did try that actually but for some reason the IMG tags won't work... It shows a broken image icon so, I'm not sure what's going on there!

GBAtemp doesn't like gifs for some reason though, a lot of hotlinking from imgur with .gif has the error you mentioned, even though when you are making the post it loads just fine (.gif not .gifv)

Thats so weird. The image you posted showed up, but the video of how you got the image to show up was appearing as the Image icon with a red cross on it, like it wasn't formatted properly.

When I quoted your post it let me watch the video in the reply box :rofl2:

Thanks for the help there guys! I managed to do it the GBATemp method. Appreciate it, I was sick of that crappy sig at the bottom being all blurry.
