If you can remember the overall image or images in your signature (including transparent backgrounds) must not exceed 350 (width) x 40 (height) pixels. Only one row of images can be placed in your signature.
If you need any help at all with your signature images or you'd like to add any images to your existing signature, please don't hesitate to ask me .
Very nice. I had one I was going put up that I made when you first gave the instructions on CC/CS but I ended up with white space around it. Maybe I should put it here so that you can let others know what I did and how to correct it.
No; I think I'll have to pick a pig and do it from the beginning again. (I just moved my computer last night and I have cords draped all over the place until I get additional cords to lengthen the ones that I have.)
Ok Kathy I can see you can paint a piggy ok, is it just saving it to a transparent background thats the problem? Oh before that, while piggy is in paint, you will need to crop it like Merry has mentioned.
So if you copy piggy into paint by using the Ctrl" and "V" buttons on your keypad. Then click the magnifying glass and highlight 8x as though you was going to colour piggy again. Its best to use another colour for your background, so if you flood fill the background with say a green coluor or any colour that is not used on your piggy.
I've just tried using the flood fill on your piggy Kathy, but the background isn't completly white, so you will need to use the pencil tool to go around your piggy. The outline of the piggy is black, so as long as you don't go over the black outline, it will be fine.
Then when your happy that you've coloured in all the background, click on the select box and surround the piggy, leaving enough room just for a small background.
Here we are so far:
Then right click inside the selected area and copy, then get the Irfanview programme up and press Ctrl" and "V" and you'll then see your normal sized piggy.
Then click file, save as and make sure the Irfanview settings are as follows:
Then name your piggy, save as a gif, that option should already be in place, but just cheak. Then a large version of your piggy will appear, just click on the background and your piggy will have a transparent background when you load him onto your signiture.
He should look like this :
Let me know if your not sure about anything
