Photoshop says the image it's saving (that I want to use as a new sig) is 16 kb. Offspring.com says it's 21 kb. can anyone tell me why they're different, and/or help me make the file smaller ?

Thanks in advance, and forgive me if I'm just being too retarded to figure it out by myself.

I had a simmiar problem a while back with an avatar. It was well under the limit by my computer, but the website seemed to think it was over. I didn't actually find a solution, i just chose another picture.

If it's a jpeg, and you want to make it smaller, just save it a couple of times. It gets smaller each time you save it, and that's why jpeg sucks. You know those small grey fields you sometimes see on the edges of the image? That's Ms Jaypegg fucking with you. Endymion had a very nice picture that showed this... On the internet jpeg can be very useful though.

the pic I wanted was simply my username with some bloody drip effect... and a freaky fractal background, very complicated design. I'll try again with something simpler to reduce the size.

Try saving it as a .gif, that should make it a lot smaller.

Try Paint Shop Pro sometime. Photoshop in my opinion sucks. And I always save it on png because gif makes the picture look weird.

I use Paint Shop Pro 9 and it does not save jpgs. it's really annoying when you have 200 pics to work on and you forget to save it as png...
