    It's pretty simple.. Just host the banner on a website somewhere (Imageshack, photobucket..) and use this code in your sig: (Replace <'s and >'s with ['s and ]'s)

    <url="http://link.to.where/you/want/to/go"><img>http://url.to.your/image.jpg</img></url>

    The site that I would the image to link to is http://sharp-shootin-photography.smugmug.com/

    And the URL of the image I would like to use is http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa58/richardpinnock/Headersmall.jpg[/IMG***]

    - *without the stars

    Can anyone get the image with the hyperlink?

    It would be appreciated if you could show me how its done.

    [​IMG]


    so what you type is

    <url="http://sharp-shootin-photography.smugmug.com/"><img>http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa58/richardpinnock/Headersmall.jpg</img></url>


    and replace all the > or < with [ or ] facing the same direction

    that works in the forum...but on a regular website would not work.

    the proper code would be

    <a href="http://sharp-shootin-photography.smugmug.com/"><img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa58/richardpinnock/Headersmall.jpg></a>

    Thanks for you're replies!

    it is for my signature ,

    there's a couple of other things....

    is there an easy way to center the image?

    also , I thought that the image is slightly too large, so I deleted the image that is hosted on photobucket , made the image smaller in photoshop , and uploaded it back up to photobucket (with the same name).

    but the image in my signature is still the larger image I have before.

    Any ideas what I have done wrong?

    Thanks again.

    No its not free , Im paying £30 / $60 a year for the power account.

    It also takes a lot of messing around with html and css.
    The site would look a lot different by default, without any changes by html and css.

    I spent hours trying to get it looking the way it is now, especially the front page.

    Once its set up as you like it , adding photos or extra galleries is easy.

    I would recommend SmugMug, if youre any good at html or dont mind learning, you can get it looking pretty professional (slideshows etc)
