    I was just wondering about the side pics? I noticed that some of them seem smashed (width wise) because of the pixel size being used... how about instead of setting the pixel size so narrow to what it is you limit the bytes on the picture? I see some people have sigs with animation where it's over 5000 bytes. Other peoples that are smashed are just 1500 bytes and would look ok if the pixels were a bit wider. I would think it eats up more bandwidth to have high byte pic then wider pixels? Am I wrong here?

    There are some that are huge 'byte' wise.
    Two that caught my eye were Wes's pic...74,971 bytes [​IMG]
    and Tatman's...56,932 bytes.

    The guys with truck pics mostly seem to be in the 3500-5500 range. I have no idea what Wes or Tatman did...

    Well the thing I wanna use as a sig is this... <a target="_blank" href=http://www.pirate4x4.com/ubb/uploads/BBRemember.jpg>Remember Sept 11</a> but it's too big pixel wise... it looks like crap when I shrink it... but the bytes are like only 2100 which is way smaller then most of the sig pics and the bytes is what eats up the bandwidth the most and the worst....

    I just thought maybe if it was limited byte wise and switched a round a bit (not to the pixel size I want, it's not all about me) but it'd help to save bandwidth which saves cash... that's why I mention it.......
