    Baptist Board.com now has the capability to introduce a new feature, image signatures for members who have more than 100 posts.

    These will appear on the left hand side next to the member's username (see mine or Barnabas').

    If you would like a personal image signature, please PM your image URL (gif or jpg) to me and I'll add it to your profile.

    Images must be actual pictures of member and must be smaller than 60x60 in size.

    IMHO, this new feature allows members to express their identity VISUALLY, rather than just through written words and the result is a whole new realm for self-expression and social interaction.

    How are our signature applied to posts, is it automatic or do we have to apply them when we post?

    It would appear that if it is not automatic, our Brother Barnabas has gone through all three thousand, seven hundred, forty four of his postings and added it!!! LOL

    Well, I just emailed my pix. Got no clue about size, style or anything (and could not figure how to attach a pix to a private email on the BB so sent it regular).

    Old dog. New tricks. Woof. :rolleyes:

    Sir da Barnabas: If it works, it's not a pic of any of us. [​IMG] It's the idea of an abstract painting that has very special,deep, ponderous meaning to me...I paid the last of what I owed on my credit card bill when I sold it! :D [​IMG]
    HA HA HA HA!

    If any of you have an image and a website to store it, but are having trouble re-sizing the image or changing the image from .bmp or .art, etc, to .gif or .jpg, I would like to recommend the following freeware. It is called Irfanview and it is a GREAT graphics viewer. Totally free and obtainable from http://www.irfanview.com/ .

    On its toolbar you can go to "image" and find resize/resample and it makes it very easy to make a new proportionally correct image in whatever format you wish!

    You can even cut part of an image in paint and paste it into Irfanview. Just thought I'd throw that out there!

    Skating around the board the past 24 hours I've noticed a few other image signatures. Look for some postings by: Thomas Cassidy, Dr. Bob Griffin, and Ernie Brazee.

    We're all still waiting with bated breath for "da picture" though! [​IMG]

    Just looking at the kewl pix of everyone else and think mine looks like the hanging judge from a bad western. :rolleyes:

    Maybe it's time to consider putting a pix of my grandkids up instead! :eek:

    The are picture images on over 10,000 posts - since 3 of the top posters have added their pictures.

    If you'd like to have your picture added, please PM me with the picture URL or if you can't reduce the image to the rquired size (60x60 or less), email me the picture and I'll edit it for you. Email: [email protected]

    I think these pictures are wonderful! So, I thought I would try it also but I wanted a more recent picture of me. It doesn't seem that hard to do, right? That's when I realized, I'm the one always taking the pictures! I have tons of pictures, since we have a 17 month old grandson, when he is here, my camera is loaded and ready for bear at all times. Most of them are of Pop and grandson, or Uncle Seth and nephew...no one takes a picture of Nana and grandson!?!? :eek: I'm going to my family web site, maybe my brother took some pictures at Christmas time, he did get a new digital camera. :D

    A Plea to You Ladies

    Since the webmaster has added this new feature, the Baptist Board has been inundated with the ugliest amongst us! [​IMG] I refuse to contribute to the further degradation of this formerly elite establishment by adding my picture. I've only seen the picture of one lady on the entire board (thanks, Margie). Please, ladies, help arrest our downward spiral by adding your image signatures!! :cool: I'm tired of looking at Clint, Thomas, Dr. Bob, Barnabas, Ernie, and The Squire. Help!! :eek:

    It's a good thing you thanked Margie, Brother! Until I read that part, she was behind me saying, "hey...Hey...HEY!!! :D

    Clint, puh-leez apologize to Margie from me for any possible implication that she was among that group mentioned by me. Her picture is by far the best on the board (compared to the sextet I mentioned above, there is no comparison), and the only good-looking one (although perhaps I should defer to her opinion that she thinks you look good. In fact, in the Ladies Forum, she says you look even better in real life. I hope so! :D I guess we just have different tastes. ;) ).

    Well, I'm glad I edited out all those nasty things you have said Brother Rlvaughn! Thanks for the credit in your post. I know you are dying to get your hands on a scanner and want to plaster your picture all over the BB - but you can't, 'cause you don't have either. But don't worry, Brother Clint can give you a hand. He can create an image for you, the type which are hung in famous museums, just ask him to give you a hand. ;)
