[FORUM] Signature & Forum Banner (File) Size

Dear Imaginative Lad,

 

thank you very much for providing this guide. It was really helpful after I have almost gotten a penalty for my signature size because I did not know that I exceeded the limit with my 160kB rather than the allowed 150kB.

 

I will take this guide into consideration if I am going to change my signature again or if I create a new one :)

 

Keep up the work and continue writing useful guides (y)

 

Kind regards ;)

Your theory is incorrect.

 

The width is not 1800, but 1777.

The height is not 270, but 200.

 

H:270 is the dimension including the black bar underneath the picture:

1777x200 is the dimension your cover photo is supposed to be (or any size with similar aspect ratio):

For example: mine is 5184x582.

@Tuna_Thanks for your reply!

 

I've read that topic as well and had my doubts after reading it, so I put this thing to the test :P.

 

To confirm my suspicion I have used both 'dimensions' extension (chrome) and MS Paint.

Both pointing out that the correct dimension should be 1777x200.

@CptAir Thank you for sharing your opinion

 

1777 x 200 pixels would be the most correct number, however, the all size of Cover Photo ( with black bar ) is approximately 1800 x 270 pixels , therefore,  that´s the correct size that a cover photo should have.

 

Sincerely,

Tuna

In this case the lower part of your cover photo would vanish behind the black bar (just like the photo in your opening post), which I don't think is quite supposed to happen.

But that of course, is whatever one prefers.
