Sig Pic

I know this question gets asked all the time, but I have never saved the directions and so I need to know how to put a picture in my signature.  I've got some cute ones of Sophia I would love to show off, but have no clue how. 

 Thanks ladies!

Re: Sig Pic

  • Here's how I do it. Hopefully someone will have an easier way...

    1. Upload your photo somewhere on the internet. I do so in my blog, but you can use shutterfly, snapfish, flickr, whatever.

    2. Right click on your uploaded photo and select Properties

    3. In Properties, copy the Address/URL (begins with http: and is usually really long)

    4. Open tinyurl.com and create a tiny url with the long URL you copied in step 3.

    5. Copy the tiny url.

    6. In your Nest profile, in the Signature field, add this bit of html:<img src="'>http://tinyurl.com/9999xx"> (the tiny url would be your own instead of 9999xx). You may have to change the dimensions if your photo is really big, so the code would look like <img src="http://tinyurl.com/9999xx" height="200" width="300">, but you might have to play around with the dimensions to make it look proportional. Save the changes to your profile.

    Can't wait to see pics of Sophia!!

    Happy mom to two sweet, silly boys: Cohen age 4, AJ age 2.

    Okay, I got it to work once, but now I have no clue how to fix it after I started messing with it.  Buz, if you want to save me and just give me the exact thing to paste in I'd appreciate it.  My tinyurl is http://tinyurl.com/42z76v

  • I can't see the pics in your siggy (could be my work connection though). But I checked out Sophia's photo in your tiny url and she's beautiful!! Cute little full lips and button nose. I just want to squeeze those little cheeks!
