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.
Open your sig select "Copy"
Open Photoshop and select "File" > "New".
Make sure the Preset is set to Clipboard.

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

Go to "File" and select "Save for web"

To change the dimension of your sig, click on the "Image size" tab

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".
you may not be able to achieve a perfect 400 x 150.

Over on the right, select the dropdown for "Quality"

Raise or lower the slider until the desired size is achieved.
Size is displayed in the lower, left corner.

Re: How to resize your sig w/Photoshop
I nver knew this until now, but you can change the size this way as well (not the dimension):
From the Save for web
Select the little arrow
Select Optimize to file size
Enter size (20)
