So before moderators closed down the upload option for the personal albums/gallery I would link my signature image from there.

Now that's gone what's the recommended approach?

Perhaps we could have a thread where you can put the image file and create a link from there? This would prevent dead links from off site, as we saw previously with other images.

Just use this thread to attach your image to a new post using the attachment feature, and then reference the image in your sig. Linking to external sites is problematic because the images regularly go missing and the free image hosts slow down everyone's browsing.

So steps:
1. create a post here and attach your sig image
2. right click on attached image in your new post to get the full url
3. use img tags in your sig to reference url from step 2

That way it is hosted here, won't go missing, and will load at the same speed as the rest of the site.

...and anyone else wanting to do the same, keep the size reasonable. Around 300x100 or 400x80 etc.

Thanks Fyrestorm, as noted by bzchi was more about keeping the site clean and quick. Before I was lazy and had it linking over from teamswift. cheers
