Thank you Nancy! I tried it and it said it needed resizing to 460 x 60. Resized it and tried to upload it again and it said it had to be less than 20kb and currently 26kb. If I resize it down to 20kb it comes up same size as before.

I think the existing design may be the issue. To get a bigger signature I need less in the design I guess.

Incidentally, if anyone uses Canva, I found out the other day, when using it again, that it was hacked last year and an awful lot of email addresses taken - including the one I used for that site. My web browser informed me of this when I typed Canva into google (Firefox) and lets you check if your email address was one of them. That might explain why I was asked to change my google account password in December! Which I did. I had signed into Canva with my google account. Anyway no issues as a result but thought I'd mention it in case anyone else used it - but you'd probably have been emailed to ask you to change your password.

So solution was the right program for jpeg compression (not file compression). Found it after some googling and it was very easy. Here it is for future reference. You upload the whole signature - select the width you want (I could only go up to 400 wide to get the max 60 depth the forum allows). Then select the percentage you want it compressing from 0-99. It then tells you how many kb the file is. Strangely the bigger the number the less compression - so I think I put in 95 for compression to get it as near to 20kb as possible.

So looking a better size now although slight loss of quality but readable.

I don't know if this will be any better!
First is within the pixel size but slightly above kb, maybe worth a try
sig1.jpg
second is within kb size
sig2.jpg

Doesn't really look very different, sorry!

trying again...

This is still within the min kb so might work better.

Or this one is a little smaller

Oh wow that is much better cypher, thank you. I’m on my phone at the moment so can’t try downloading it and uploading again but will try later. Seems full photoshop is the way to do it then!

Unfortunately they both said file size too big. Even when you get under 20k it still says it can be no bigger than 465 x 60. So probably best stick with this one which is 440 by 60. But thank you very much for trying.

So nice to see Moo & Pickle on your signature, it's a shame the bigger size wasn't accepted.
