    Default Signature Pictures?

    Hey.

    I've been lurking for a while and thought I'd better get involved!

    I can't seem to shrink down the following image:




    I want to put it in my signature. I'm using CorelDraw - but when I shrink it to 500x100 pixels, it's too big (in kb), and when I shrink it to a size <9.8kb, it says that the size (in pixels) is all wrong, even though the file is 290x98pixels?

    Anyone got any idea?

    Best way would be to reduce the pixels but there should be a tick box or something that says "maintain aspect ratio". Basically, you want both the length and width to reduce proportionally. i would go for around 300px width. If you can't figure it out I can do it for you.

    The error is done by the forum, or just in Corel?

    By the looks of it, reducing the image size is squishing the picture. 290x98 is not the same ratio as 500x100.

    290x98 is the size I get when I maintain the aspect ratio. I thought that 500x100 was a max. size, and 290x98 would be fine?

    happydan if i send you the file (just let me know what format), could you shrink it down to size (pixel/kb) so that I can use it in my sig? For some reason the colour (the blue and the red) gets altered when I export to jpeg.

    Your logo looks like it say "Buffalo Al" rather than "Buffalo Ill" anyway

    I read it as Buffalo Al as well. Maybe we should change it to Bill.

    should Avatar pics not be 80 x 80 pics ?
    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).

    and profile pics should be 100 x 100 ?
    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 64.0 KB (whichever is smaller).
