    Default Photoshop and Sigs

    Could be the wrong forum, but hell I figure its close!

    Heres the issue for those who are PS saavy (i also have gimp):

    When creating my signature image, Im saving it as a .PNG so as to allow for background transparency. When I upload it however here on the forums, its just simply adding a white background (see current sig below). What am I doing wrong? Ive seen a few sigs posted that are working just fine with transparency and Ive asked the creators what they did. All have the same response "I just made it and saved it as a .png and uploaded it".

    So, what am I doing wrong? I just dont get it cause im saving it as a png as well! Help!

    EDIT: Have you tried to upload it to a image hosting site and stick the image code into your sig box?
    Not sure if you have already done that but it looks like you uploaded it through the forums.

    But then again so does alot of the other sigs..........

    BAH! Maybe you didn't do it right! Too tired to think

    I just simply uploaded it through the forums, where it says: Upload image from your computer"

    Would going to a third party image hosting site really make the difference?

    try a gif just saying cause they are smaller and pngs aren't always supported as well as gifs are usually. Also try a 3rd party host.
