I am a Biff - .gif file on my signature block

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    So I have used the search function - nothing useful.

    I have googled - can't find anything.

    Either I am asking the wrong question (most likely) or I am really confused.

    Yes, I am a biff.

    So please - how do you have a .gif file (i.e. a bit of movie that is hosted on another site saved as a .gif) on my signature?

    Many Thanks for the sensible answers in advance!!

    Edited for mong grammar.
  2. don't bother
    i often work on a slow internet connection and get fed up waiting for them to load
  3. The standard forum method is to use the following codes (but without spaces)

    [ img ] ink to image, eg where hosted such as photobucket [ / img]

    But can also add a web link so that if anyone clicks they go to your website etc:

    [ url = web address link [ img ] link to image, eg where hosted such as photobucket [ / img] [ / url ]
  4. I am luddite mate & awful with IT. My mates son converts things into Web Resolution .JPEG images and my wife is Red Hot on Adobe Photoshop along with my eldest. I could be wrong as they are all out tonight but I think that a .JPEG is a high resolution still image & only .gif images can be animated and have frames. I think that most s/w programs can optimise images for web use at 72dpi and get them to load fast. Good luck.
