I totally get you!!! I updated both my siggy and my avatar the other day...back to my coffee theme.

Love that picture of you with the sunglasses (although you totally rock it in the avatar with the bits of grey).

Personally, I like using my Bitmoji for my avatars - she's a much cooler version of me and I don't have to worry about doing my makeup or covering my roots (which are horrible right now!)

Esther - love your new siggy!!!

I actually hate making siggies. That is my least favorite challenge during DSD & iNSD. I feel like I put so much work into, and I never love it. I would probably like it better if Cindy made a template for me to use, lol.

I hate changing my avatar because even though I follow the directions and shrink it to the "allowed" size, I always get it wrong and have to resize and retry about 50 times before I get it right, so I only change it every 2 or 3 years!

I don't even have a signature graphic right now! LOL I don't even know where to host the images anymore. I'm stuck in photobucket and dropbox days and I haven't had luck with hosting things on dropbox in the past few years.

THIS. I still cant figure out the right way to share the finished challenges image every month, for some reason it wont show up.

Also since I'm not on any CTs it feels weird to have a siggie not advertising for them. Like .... my name is already here

I had someone make mine for me! LOL And that photo is at least 9 years old. I really should update, but it is low on my list of things to do.

I never change my avatar... because I loathe photos of myself.

BUT you guys... I looooove all the signatures! & I'm the one that always wants to host a siggie challenge during events *blush*

Jo mentioned above - Imgur is great free place to upload images. I use Flickr (also free) ... both are easy to navigate and simple to use for challenge trackers & signatures.

To create my signature I always start with a box template roughly 600X300 pixels and then shrink my alpha & elements down and scrap within that, then I'm never having to resize anything. How do you guys usually create yours?

ETA: That's a terrific photo of you, Dalis!

I've actually been thinking of updating both! My user pic is now eleven years old, and I've basically had the same siggy since I came here as a designer. The siggy isn't so bad for me to make, but the photo is a tough one... trying to find a photo that I love and feels like me, while at the same time being "appropriate" (read: not guzzling wine) seems impossible! LOL

When I create a new siggie I always start with a smaller box like Loni mentioned BUT then I have issues with trying to add my saved shadows. They look way too strong and too big... for that, I hate making new siggies.

I start too big apparently. I think I do 900x300 or some thing like that. I like your size one.

Interesting....I always just make my siggy in a 12x12 ..
I just center my design and then my shadows look how I want them. I crop and then resize after that.

The ONLY times I have ever done custom siggies is for a challenge. I hugely struggle with them, I'm not sure why. I may have to take this on as an unofficial challenge.
hmmmm

I pretty much never use an actual photo of me for an avatar --- only use 'me' when it's arted up in some way.

I used to make siggies. But the last time I tried, I failed miserably so I gave up.

Actually, I don't even see any of your siggies. I have that turned off in my preferences. Much less scrolling when reading threads... Not just here but many other places, I have found that some siggies are way too big IMO and if the person posts a lot, it just means so much more scrolling. I like things short and sweet

But for all of you that like siggies, go for it!
