    There is an image-manipulation program called The Gimp available here: http://www.gimp.org/windows

    It has many critics (mostly because of its difficult-to-use interface), and it doesn't have the power of photoshop (or so I'm told), but it's free. You might as well give it a try.

    If you want something that is simple, use "Paint" which comes standard on all PC's with Microsoft. You could also go to the Art Guild and request a "makeover" in the "makeover" thread! :p

    Not attacking Jessehk or anything.

    But just don't use Gimp...you'll end up being what the program is named after :S

    Try Photoshop or the fake version, Paint Shop Pro

    Actually, I edited your signature 2 times, suspended it on the third infraction, in the same one week-and a half period.

    The first time, your banner was too large, I replaced it with:
    ____________________________________

    [​IMG]
    Please refer to the Banner and Signature Rules in the Announcements Section.
    ____________________________________

    The second time, you had like 5 lines of text double spaced (blank lines count as text so 10 lines total), three of those lines were In text much too large. That text was replaced with:
    ____________________________________

    Please refer to the Banner and Signature Rules in the Announcements Section.
    ____________________________________

    The third infraction was that you reinserted text with oversized characters again, asking people to go to your forum page that you have listed in your profile.

    Look, I'm not here to be nor am I trying to be overly mean, but you have to work within the rules set out on the board that apply to everyone. To me and the rest of the staff as well, I could have and it is in my power to have a full page sig if I wanted. Do I? Obviously not. A signature is just that, a signature, something to make you unique. But it's not a life story, picture gallery or an advertising medium. We have appropriate sections on the forum for that.

    We understand that members slip up occasionally and we'll give them a nudge to review the board's rules. When we have to remind the same member a few times in a week, usually the best action is to just disable the feature. That seems to get people's attention.

    So you've got until the end of the week without a signature. Four more days should be ample to find, and read the rules, and plan accordingly. Have you read them yet?
