OFROAD COMPUTER COURSE

Lesson 1: How to post pictures in your signature:


Step 1: Read the article viewtopic.php?f=21&t=603 .
To be able to add pictures to your signature you will have to host it off-site at a photo hosting site like photobucket.

Step 2: Create the picture you want to use. for tips on compressing and resizing pictures read the article viewtopic.php?f=21&t=295 . Try not to exceed image dimensions of about 150pixels high and if you make a collage of pictures like the one in my signature do not exceed 700-800 pixels wide for the entire collage.

Step 3: Once the picture(s) are uploaded to your photo hosting account (like photobucket) copy the url for your pic and add it to your forum signature. To edit your signature do as follows:

3a: Click User Contol Panel in the top left of your screen.
3b: Click Profile in the options column on the left of the screen.
3c: Click Edit signature n the options column on the left of the screen.
3d: Paste the picture in the large text block in the middle of the screen.
The image must appear in the format [img]YOUR%20PICTURE"S%20URL[/img]

P.S. If you still don't come right Email the pictures to me (bennieATToyota4x4DOTcoDOTza) together with 50 bucks and I will do it for you. (That is R 50 per photo so if your email contains 4 pics you will have to email me R 200 :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: )

Bennie can you tell us the trick of how to make a pic display large once it has been added as an attachment :?: I know you did explain somewhere but I cant find the post :oops:

And all you other guys I recommend irfanview for resizing images, it is a small download about 1.3meg and is very simple and effective to use. just send me a pm if you need any pointers on how it works :wink: http://www.irfanview.com

Attach the picture as usual, save the post, right click on the thumnail, select open in new window. Select the new window's URL, copy it, edit the post you made press the Img Button and paste the URL between the Img commands. Then remove the last part of the url (&mode=view)

Code: Select all

I find it incredibly difficult to change my signature pics. I've posted the images with the right dimensions (150 pixels high) in Picasa and Flikr, pasted the url's in between the image brackets, but the forum programme keeps on telling me that it "Cannot determine the dimensions of the images".

Why can we not get an automatic image resizer on the forum?
