Uh oh, I don't know how to do that. There might be a tutorial to help from Siggy Making for Beginners? (http://forums.ivillage.com/ivillage/?category.id=iv-prsigshownew) Or someone there will be able to answer your question.

I know Lindy uses Photoshop and I've only dabbled in GIMP briefly, still have to really learn either program.

If you have it saved as a gif, to put it in your sig code where it links, i think this is the code:

<a href="direct link to your board" "target=_blank"><img src="direct link to image"></a>

Let me know if that works :smileyhappy:

Oops! I put a " in the wrong spot. It should be after the = in the target=_blank

making it target="_blank" That makes it open in a new tab so the person doesn't lose their place on the page they're on already :smileyhappy: I think that will also get rid of that weird square thingy i'm seeing next to the graphic
