First you have to upload it to a image site like Photobucket or Imageshack, once it's loaded you will get a link or url to the image and you will need to put it in your Profile so you can have it as a signature

^To add to that:

1. Go to "User Control Panel"
2. Click "Profile"
3. Click "Signature" or "Edit Signature"
4. Put a image box in the field. Example: [ img ] [ /img ]
5. Paste the URL of the image in the boxes. Example: [ img ]URL HERE[ /img ]
6. Click "Submit"

You can also add text around the image. Just type it.

Well, it really depends on what programs you have on your computer. Of course, you can always use Fotoflexer on Photobucket, or Piknik. I'll put links.
Or, you can use Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, or whatever you have. There's also a free tool that I use, called Photoscape. It's free to download. I use Gimp also. It's free too.
Or, the easiest option, if your not too computer savvy, is to have somebody make one. I do, you can PM me if you choose this option.

Ok, I just wanted to test out my new avatar and signature....I tried to pick good ones hopefully you get a kick out of them...I wonder if anyone has seen them before? Here or anywhere....I also have a few back ups....maybe i'll switch them around when the mood strikes me....Ok thanks, Vi.
