How to make a siggy, updated

I’ve made an updated version of my siggy tutorial, for those on any ProBoards forum.

And my other screenshots will be on a Mac computer using a Chrome browser, but it will work fine on any computer, so ignore any subtle differences. K? K.

  1. Find a picture. You need a digital picture (ending in .jpg or .jpeg or .gif or .png) somewhere on your computer. It can be scanned in or fresh off your digital camera, or it can be something you edited beyond recognition. It doesn’t matter. It just needs to end in one of those extensions and you need to know where it is on your computer.

    Personally, I like to mess with my pics. I’ll teach you that later in another lesson maybe. 😉 Anyway, here is my pic in Finder (Explorer, in Windows-ese).
  2. Get it online. There are several sites out there that will let you do this, but let’s use tinypic. Go there, and fill in the form like so:

    You want to make sure you set the “resize” option so you don’t get a crazy big siggy. Hit “Upload now!” and prove you’re a human.
  3. Copy the IMG Code. Click on that very first box under “IMG Code for Forums and Message Boards” and copy it.

  4. Paste it into your siggy. Go to your profile using the “profile” icon up in the top banner.

    Click on “Modify Profile.”
    Go down under “Personal information” to the signature box and paste that IMG Code in.

    Scroll all the way down, hit the “Modify Profile” button, and you’re done! Enjoy! 
  5. Extra stuff! This is optional stuff you can add to your siggy now that you have a picture in there.
    • Want some text too? No problem! If you want it above your picture, start typing it before that code you just pasted in. If you want it below your picture, start typing it below that code.
    • How about a link?  Use this code: [url=(put the URL here)](thing you want linked)[/url] You can link text or images or both. In the image below, the “Text above pic.” will link to Google. Neither the image nor the text below will be linked.
