    How do I create a new signature. I had one a few years ago on the old TCS site. How do I format a new one? Any help is appreciated.

    Do you still have your old signature saved on your computer? That would be the easiest option. Making a new one isn't easy (at least, I didn't find it easy...but then I don't have photoshop and am VERY new at this kind of thing:winkcat:). I used this site to make mine, but it isn't very easy to work with...either that, or it hates my macbook:rolleyes:

    For me, the hardest thing was turning a photo into clipart and sizing it appropriately without photoshop (I did some weird thing using a Word publishing layout template, but it really wasn't very clean and I had to try a lot of photos before I found one that came out ok).

    Oh, I used this article to get the signature dimensions ;) How To Edit Your Forum Signature?

    Sorry - guess that wasn't much help :rolleyes2: :lol:

    @abbysmom seems very good at this kind of thing. Hopefully she can help more:crossfingers:

    Don't have my old signature and even if I did the old one doesn't show the kitties we now have. Seems beyond me at this point. Maybe someone can find an "easy" way to do it! Not an emergency Thanks for your response.

    Once things settle down on the new platform, we can start threads like we used to have with members asking for sigs and others volunteering to make them. :) For now, you can start going through your pictures and look for nice clear ones with plainer backgrounds so it is easier to make a signature from them. :)

    Thanks Abby. I remember that the volunteers did a wonderful signature a few years back. Look forward to being able to update this again when things settle down.

    I'm looking forward to a signatures thread again too! I don't know how to make one myself, and I can't find my old ones even though I'm sure I stored them somewhere.

    I've got a super old one I did for you if you want to use it until we do new ones:

    It took me quite a while, but I managed to make my own. It's not as fabulous as my kitties deserve, but maybe I'll play around some more, see what I come up with! :D

    OMG, you do not want to know the lengths I went to to make that! I ended up using Excel and Paint. Couldn't figure out the site @columbine gave. :paperbag:

    I couldn't figure out the site I gave either @pushylady! It took me hours and about 10 attempts before I managed to make mine :lol: (and that's before the house it took me trying to find a way to turn a photo into clipart and resize it in Word :disturbed:).

    I've been playing on a free trial of Photoshop recently, but can't make head nor tail of it so far :sigh: (and have triggered my rsi and carpal tunnel issues in the process :rolleyes:). I'd love to be able to make sigs with sharper pics of Asha (my current ones are a little fuzzy), and to be able to help other members out too - I love designing this kind of thing :p

    Do you want me to gather pics of the kitties? What is the procedure?
