Avatar and Signature Tutorial - Tuesday, July 01, 2008 11:09 AM ( #1 )
Signatures:
1) Go to My CP (in the top bar, looks like a lego)
2) Click the Signature/Comment tab.
3) For signatures, treat them as you would an image inserted into a post.  You insert a picture choosing the little insert image button, and then paste the URL.  The URL is the only real trick, your signature has to have a URL and cannot be uploaded from your computer. 
4) You can also add a "Comment" to your sig; this has a character limit.
5) Be sure to save!

* Your signature should not exceed 500x200 px and 100kb and should not contain nudity or profanity

 

Avatars:
Forum avatars are larger than mainpage avatars, and do not automatically resize.  Thus, they may give you a bit more trouble!
1) Go to My CP (in the top bar, looks like a lego)
2) Click the Avatar/Profile Picture tab
3) Upload your avatar here, be sure it meets the specs listed below*.  Unlike sigs, avatars are uploaded, not link, so this shoudl be saved to your computer.

Tip: If you have an image that is 150x150 or less but you just can't get it to less than 50kb, save it as a gif and reduce the color spectrum. 

* Avatars must be equal to or less than 150x150px, less than 50kb and should not contain nudity or profanity

The Pics in Progress thread is helpful if you have a picture you want altered, or you need an avatar made.

Displaying your Trophy Card in Your Sig
 
flip-it3


I've been getting a lot of PM's about how to display your trophy card in your sigs. So I decided to make a little tutorial. 

Ok first off using the code www.us.playstation.com gives you when you sign in: 

<a href="http://profiles.us.playstation.com/playstation/psn/visit/profiles/flip-it3"><img src="http://fp.profiles.us.playstation.com/playstation/psn/pid/flip-it3.png" 

You only need those 2 address links within " ". 

Then insert those links into: 

[*link= insert first link here ][*image] post second link here [*/image][*/link] 

Remove the '*' when your done to properly display your trophy card. 

Hopes this helps. 

Also regarding updating your trophy card, go to the playstation site and refresh it there. It takes a while before changes will apply. To refresh updated images on a site you are viewing press CTRL+F5 to refresh if this doesn't work just wait it will soon change.

If you have the image on your PC just upload it to Photobucket or some similar image hosting site.  Then you'll be all set.

Predator: the forum template doesn't determine the appropriate size of the sig, the R&G do.

Try http://www.picoodle.com/ to upload it. Make sure it doesn't exceed 500x200 px and 100kb.

Edit: Cat beat me to it

Post the image here and I'll have a look at it.

Edit: That sounded like I'm a photoshop wizard....which I'm not. I just thought I'd try and help out
Edit 2: You'd better post it here instead.
