PostSubject: [Tutorial]: Forum Signatures   Fri Jan 02, 2009 5:55 pm

I was asked to post a tutorial on how to make a signature and put it up on the website.

Making a Signature:
1) You will need a program like Adobe Photoshop(CS2 or CS3 for best results)*
2) You can use different brushing techniques, backgrounds, renders(pictures of characters), or many ohter objects to create your signature, You will eventually end up with something like this when finished:



Uploading A Signature To Website:

Since There Are Many Different Picture Uploading Places That You Can Use...I will do a tutorial for the one I use..and the more famous one..Photobucket.

www.imageshack.us
1) Go to www.imageshack.us
2) On the page, there should be a button that says BROWSE
3) This should bring up a screen where you can find and select your picture. (Make sure its in .jpg .jpeg. or .gif format)
4) Press Ok
5) Leave your email blank, make sure reize image is unchecked, and that remove size/resolution bar is checked.
6) Also make sure the offer thing for hotjobs is also deselcted or a window will pop up in yahoo jobs. If this happens just close the window or tab.
7) Click Host it! button.
Cool Scroll down to the box that says Hotlink for forums(1)
9) Deselect Include Details above the box.
10) Copy and paste ONLY the part that says http://img...." border="0" alt="" />
11) Go to www.aeon.aforumfree.com
12) Log in the forums
13) Select Profile at the top of the page
14) Go to the tab "Signature"
15) Paste the link INCLUDING the
16) Click "Save"

www.photobucket.com
1) Go to www.photobucket.com
2) Register on the website (if you need help with this ask me and I will help)
3) Login to the website
4) There will be a thing in the middle that says Upload Images and Videos with a button that says "choose files"...click that button.
5) Find the signature that you want and select ok(make sure its .jpg .jpeg or .gif)
6) You can add a title and description if you wish, then hit save and continue
7) It will take you back the the beginning screen and you should see your picture now below the Upload Images and Videos box.
Cool Move your cursor over the image and copy the "IMG code"
9) Follow parts 11-16 on the www.imageshack.us tutorial

Using a signature posted on the forums
1) Find the post with the picture in it.
2) Right click on the image, and click properties.
3) There should be a "Location" link on there.
4) Copy that link
5) Follow the steps 11-16 on the www.imageshack.us tutorial
6) MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE LINK BETWEEN IN THAT ORDER!!!

*Photoshop is not a free program, however other programs like it may be. Photoshop is extremely expensive unless you download it illegally and use a key gen or have a hacked version of it. I will not explain how to do this*


I Hope This Helps and Eliminates all Problems Smile

Ren
Thank you very much for putting this tutorial up, I had no idea how to make or post a signature, I will try and start learning the process tomorrow, if i can get the software sorted out, which i don't think will be a problem. Snip try and post a explanation, instead of repeating a meaningless sentence, over and over.
But if you were referring to folk having to buy photoshop software, if they want a LEGAL COPY they have to purchase it for a reputable dealer, but you are also right you can down load cracked copies from almost all of the P2P torrent sites ( ISO.Hunt, Mininova, BT.Junkie, The PirateBay. ) but you also take the risk of getting more than you bargained for, ie Viruses Trojans and all other kinds of malware. But getting back on topic, if I have any problems I will post my questions if you don't mind answering them, and again thanks for the info

Bull lol! lol! lol!

I will answer any and all questions about it Smile And yes, the torrent sites..if you don't know what your doing..can really be ...dangerous to your computers health haha Laughing Either way it still works if you find the right one. I will post on how to make one with the program if needed..however, I will not post on how to get the program, therefore I can't be responsible if your computer goes bad, or something else happens to it. Well, hope this does help Smile

On photoshop you can use all sorts of picture types...but the best ones to upload them are .jpg .jpeg and .gif....a lot of them, if they are not in that form, change them to it..which may reduce the quality. Its a suggestion, I guess you don't have to follow it if you don't want to.

Yes, if you enlarge it, it makes it all look pixely. I use the following dimensions for all of mine.
Width: 425 Pixels
Height: 125 Pixels

but its totally up to you Smile

Yes I'm going to make it smaller now. The reason why this is still a empty signature is becuase I want to put in my other chars as well. Wich I don't have at the moment Razz . So I left space for that. This is sort of a raw version. And when I get to lvl 40 and create my new chars then I'll put AEON in it because then I can see where there is room.

lol!
