    How to resize your sig w/Photoshop

    At PP.O we ask that sigs are limited to 400 x 150 is dimension and around 20kb in size.
    The screen print is kind of fuzzy, so I have included links under each screen print where you can view it and it will not be fuzzy.
    Go to the link and select "Full Size" to view.

    Once this has been viewed a few times, I will merge it wiith the Sig Help thread.

    This tutorial will help you resize you sigs.

    1.
    Open your sig select "Copy"

    2.
    Open Photoshop and select "File" > "New".
    Make sure the Preset is set to Clipboard.
    Select "Ok"

    3.
    Go to "Edit" and select "Paste".
    You should see your sig now.

    6.
    Make sure the "Constrain Properties" box is checked or else your sig will be distorted.
    Then set the "Width" and "Height" propertes.
    Then select "Apply".
    Note:
    you may not be able to achieve a perfect 400 x 150.
