Will a picture image in the signature line(s) take away from actual words allowed? How many lines are we allowed now?
I'd love to keep my sig and add a photo to it.

The picture does not necessarily count as additional lines unless you put the BBCode tags on a new line.

So for example your signature - you could probably have an image below your list but it would have to be right up against it on Line #5.

(I should add that both my Avatar and my Sig Picture were created by me - from photos I took with my phone and then mucked about with in PAINT.NET)

You could just delineate them some how. Maybe ":" or "|"

Indeed. My Sig stretches as one line across my posts, but it's considered 3 lines in the editor, so it looks like:

ttttttttttttttttttt
ttttttttttttttttttt
ttttttttttttttttttt

{sigpic}{/sigpic}

As suggested by mfergusonjr; one thing you can do with extra text is to reformat it. Since the image is wide, the wider text will fit right in.

Example:

125g African Haps & Peacocks | 55g B&W clowns, Goby, Blenny Gramma | 29g Cube- Dragonet, 2 Gobies | 10g X2 Cichlid*10g Pod Tank*29G SW

I don't think we want to increase the size of the signature available area too much, otherwise when you open a thread you'll hvae more signature than content and it's not all that useful. When the new my tanks feature rolls out, that will help a lot, however, towards not listing your tanks in your sig.

Can someone link the info page regarding signature banners?

I have tried inserting BBcode from my albums as well as linking from ImageShack. All I can get to come up are text links.

Thanks!
