You've got two options.

1) The first is to resize the gif yourself. There are a number of simple gif resizers out there; off the top of my head you have Ezgif, Gifmaker and Picasion (although I don't use them so I can't offer a recommendation about which is the best). Basically they require you to save the gif on your computer and then reupload it there where it can be resized.

To give some idea of size a 150 x 150 gif would take up this much space:

And a 100 x 100 gif this much:

2) The second is to use E's formating options to resize the Gif. To give an example of how this works in practice, the Gif in my sig is actually this size (320px 126):

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide


But I use E's size commands to change it to 178 x 100 so it appears the size it does in my sig.

To give an example of how this could look and the code needed for your sig:

Code: [Select]

[img height=150]http://cdn.gifstache.com/2012/8/23/gifstache.com_1569_1345942808.gif[/img]

Which gives you:

If you wanted the whole thing centred just drop a "centred" tag around the pair:

I try to used the code that you had gave up  Consortium but the picture will not take it just don't get saved or something. I am not sure if there something wrong with the link or my computer... so I guess I will wait for someone else to try it.

No, the link is legit, I could possibly save it to my photobucket and use the link thus way, but I don't think that would change much.

Thanks for your help Consortium...but it doesn't seem to be working...im sorry.

Actually... thinking about it I suspect that signature images need to be saved to the wiki before they can be used (because I pretty much automatically upload anything I want to use to the wiki I didn't think about it)

I've uploaded the gif to the wiki for you; give it another shot using the below code (either centred or uncentred)

This is correct.
