The file unoptimized is around 85KB in Photoshop CS, but I always optimize my work via Adobe ImageReady, so it is around 33KB. I would suggest maybe 40KB max size limit, if possible, just to be safe. I've attached the SigPic I would like to use;

I thought about doing that, but wasn't sure if it would lose some of the quality. Doesn't look bad at all. Hmmm, I may redo it then and see what size it comes out. The one I posted, that you fixed, has already been optimized (60%), so there was already some loss. Thanks for the tip!

Okay, I redid the whole thing (forgot to save a .psd file the first time ) and did the Save For Web thingy, but at 40%. That put it right at 19.56KB, so maybe that'll work. That was without saving with a ICC Profile, too. Made a few minor adjustments as well.

Here it is;


Now to try it out and see if there is any loss.

Well, as you can see, it's still blurry.

The 19.5k limit is probably pretty solid.

Also, a lot of files are larger when put online for some reason. I have a few images on my PC that I tried uploading here once that were just under 295k (or whatever the jpg limit is) according to windows, but when I tried to upload them here they were over.

Okay, saved it again in Photoshop using the Save For Web, but went down to like 35 or 30, can't remember now, and it put the size at 18.23KB. As you can see, it's not blurry anymore! Good to know that it can be done, just think it's a little odd that the file size limit is the same as the avatars when the sigpics are 5 times larger in width. Ah, well. At least I got it working now.

Keep in mind that you can disable showing signatures in your user profile.
