Since many new people have a hard time making signatures and getting them to be the right size, I figured I'd write up a little DIY for it.

Step 1: Image Hosting

In order to get a signature larger than the size E46fanatics allows you to upload as a signature, you need to host your image on a different website. In other words, you need to upload the image you want to use to a website like flickr, imageshack, photo bucket, etc. I prefer photobucket.

-Click upload
-Choose the file of the image you want to use
-Click Done or Okay




Step 2: Sizing Your Picture

You don't want your picture to be obnoxiously large, but you also don't want it to be eye strainingly small. You want to make your image a reasonable size.

-Select the image you want to use as your signature
-Click the "Edit Button" (Located above your image. It is a paintbrush inside of a rectangle)





-When in editing mode, select adjustment>resize



-Make it an appropriate size
-Edit as necessary
-Save the new, smaller image


3: Making the Signature

-On e46fanatics go to Quick links>Edit Signature





-On photobucket, copy the image address.


(Clicking that will copy the image to your clipboard)



-Paste the image into the "Edit Signature" window



-Save it and enjoy your new signature!

Very nicely written but don't know if it's in the right section but I know you put it here to help out the new members on the forums. :D

I foresee wallpaper sized signatures from new users in the near future.




The next MySpace is upon us.

Glitter backgrounds, fancy font, soundcloud playback buttons rofl..
Mwahahahah the revolution has begun!

But seriously maybe we can get this stickied to help the noobies out
