I think you'll have to block images altogether, DD.

Weird. 19.5KB is not big enough for a 500x100 picture if there is going to be any color to it.
Agreed. A bit hard to read (for me at least) at 1920x1200.

I run my desktop at 1440x1080 and its a bit hard to read the text in picture sigs, but not too bad.

I said this once before and apparently some of you didn't read it properly or just didn't read it period. THE LIMIT IS NOT NINETEEN POINT FIVE KAY. REALLY.

I still don't understand why they would make the limit 19.5k...

Yes, it's true, you can upload a SigPic larger than 19.5KB, but it reduces the quality if larger than limit. My SigPic was not blurry until I uploaded it, because it was larger than 19.5KB. Try it out for yourself.

I noticed that that some sections of your signature are blurry. I located the maximum file size setting for a signature, which is currently set to 20,000 bytes. How many bytes would it take to clear up some of the blurriness in your sig?
