I think your best route is to ask whoever made the sig, especially if it's animated, to resize it for you. It'll look a lot better if the sig maker does it than if you try to resize it now, after it's made. Unless animating software has changed a lot in the past several years, the best results would require resizing the individual frames (which can often be done all at the same time in the graphics software) and then re-animating it.

Edit: You're not talking about the sig in your post above, are you? That one is a very small 38 k, won't slow down even dial-up access.

And a general comment. Please upload your sigs to your Delphi storage space and link from there to the sig section in your profile. When you link to the image on your forum, it makes that forum appear on everyone's recently visited forum list. Then we have to remove the forum from the list.

That's a still image, just a JPEG. Do you have any graphics software on your computer or device? You can use that to resize it yourself. It's not a huge file size, 85 k. Its dimensions are large enough to take up the full width of the forum discussion column, though. It's 960x540 pixels.

I can resize if you'd rather, though I'd have to upload to my site because the forum software will resize it in a post.

I do not have any graphic programs on my computer. I usually go to someone or someone gives me a sig. I just happened to really like this one so I copied it not thinking about how large it was. Please do that for me I would be ever most appreciative! thank you so much for your help. magdalena

Okay, I've resized to 3 sizes, so you can pick whichever you like:

These all look pretty large and readable. If you want it smaller still, let me know.

You're welcome. Ummm.... resizing takes a couple of seconds, then only a couple of minutes to upload and link in my post. Ain't rocket science. ;-)

Edit: Please download the image to your computer and then upload it to your Delphi webspace. Don't link to it on my website. Next time I do housecleaning on my site, I'm likely to delete the file and then your sig image will disappear. If you need help putting it into your Delphi webspace and your sig section, ask the staff. You can download the image by right-clicking and choosing download.

Looking good.

Another way to handle this to first save the image to your computer, then use Insert Image From my Computer on the editor toolbar instead of using the online image location.  That will resize the image as well and you won't have to rely on the site keeping the image available.  Depending on your system you may even be able to simply drag and drop the image into a message or sig.
