Yep ( hey like mine?) Just get an image and use Image hosting(ie: Myonlinephotos.com) and just post ti there ( MAKE SURE YOU GOT THE DIRECT IMAGE LINK: ie: myonlineimages.com/enzo/picture/sig1223 ect.ect.)
then just put that link on IMG code and put it in your sig, and VUALLA!!

ok i'm stupid. give me COMPLETE details please.

posted by  enzo#2

complete details, then... find the image of your choice in the website of your choice. Right click on the image and then click properties. There you should see a URL, ie... "http://www.iamacrazyidiotnamedbubba.com/coolpic.jpeg". That is where the image is located. Copy that URL, and then edit your signature by going into the User CP > settings and options > Edit Signature. put in the url, highlight it and click the image button(the one that looks like mountians. or just type without the "'s "your url"

Tada! you now have a nifty and very interesting image in your sig...

You can use this same way to edit your avatar image.. the one on the left, or just to put images into your text, above.

here, tell me a pic htat you want, and i'll do it for you

First of all, find an image that you want in your signature. It'll have to be an online image, unless you upload your own, in which case you'd have to find an image uploading site or something. Right click on the image and click "Properties" or "Image Properties" or something along that line. Then you will see something that looks like the URL that you see in your address bar. Select this URL, right click and click "COPY" After this, go to your Control Pannel, "User CP", click on Edit Signature, on the left hand side. Once you are there, you will see a screen quite similar to the "Reply to Thread" or "Start Topic" dialogue box. Paste the image URL into this box, and in the front of the URL you will type . After the URL you will type . In the box it will look something like this without the quotation marks or additonal spaces; "[ IMG]http://www.thesitenamehere.com/maybeanadditionalfolderor2here/theimage. jpeg[ /IMG]"

then you might add additional notes and info or something here.

then you save it, or preview it to make sure it looks good. If you preview it, make sure you save it when you're done. That is all. Try again. And make sure you select Show your Signature in the aditional Options Bar.
