    Once you have made your sig, click save as, then type in a name then put ".png" after it. Just hit ok to the corresponding messages until it saves. Then go to a photo website (I use photobucket). Hit upload and go to the folder you saved it to and double clicked. After that the site should upload it to your account in the photo website. In photobucket you would then look under the thing you uploaded and find share. Then click the share by link thing. Copy the link under "forums" that say's "full size" to the right. Then paste the link in your sig a voila, you have uploaded your sig :)

    Hey guys I have a question. I've been practicing with GIMP on my Macbook and I have a problem. I make the sig and then I want to save it as a .jpg folder it tells me that I have to "export" the image into the format. However when I try and export the file size is always too big so I have to reduce quality to make the file size fit...Is there any way around this problem because in the end my sig just looks blurry.

    Thank you in advance for the help :)

    EDIT: As you can see below :)
  10. Easiest way is as too save it as PNG, then upload it to a media hosting site, I use, then scroll down to direct link, copy the link and paste it in between IMG tags.

    sorry noob here

    question one: there are two images in the first post. one is that winged cartoon girl and the second is devils pic. if we want to get the winged girl on devils pic how to do that?

    question two: is there some way we can use freehand cutting without having to pull the mouse here and there to get the right cut?
