    i have photoshop 7.0, and am trying to find out how to reduce my file size from 3.0kb to 2.0 kb, so i can use it in my sig. line.

    Not a photoshop user, but most programs have an option to resize or scale and image. Typically you can find it under either the edit or image menus.

    Hope that helps.

    Good point Texas,

    There should be an option to Use "Save For Web" in Photoshop. Set the pixel dimensions for your image the way you want (thats the image size). Set the quality to somewhere between 60 and 75 (they say web images are typically only 72 dpi anything above that is overkill)

    another question..........why img's NOT allowed in sig line?.....i googled vbulletin, and thats a option that can be turned off........and i ask WHY?

    would make it easier trying to get my .jpeg into my sig line

    In photoshop, if you go to the image size dialogue, what does it say the resolution is under pixel size? Anything more than 72 pixels/in is unnecessary for the web, so lower it to 72. Actually, before you do that, make a note of the width and height at the top under 'pixel dimensions' because you'll probably have to reset it.

    If you want, PM me and I'll see if I can get it down to a manageable size for you.
