Pics too big to fit the sig, please help me.

Alright, I'm technically challenged. I want to put different pictures in my sig but most of the ones I have are too big. How do I make pictures smaller? I don't even know where to start.

Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about the actual screen size of the picture or the file size?

Not familiar with Fireworks, but I can give tips for Photoshop.

Hmmm...cropping shouldn't do that. Are you maybe talking about resizing it?

Just as an example, I started out with this pic for my signature:
http://phasersonkill.tripod.com/jlh14.txt
(Please don't download it too many times, I need the bandwidth for an eBay listing. :-) )

Anyway, I chopped portions of the top and bottom to reach a height of 100 pixels and chopped a little off the right side where you can see the middle of the magazine it was scanned from. Then, it basically became what I have in my sig. Sometimes you have to crop and resize to get to the desired size, but it shouldn't turn out fuzzy or anything (at least it doesn't in Photoshop). Can you maybe post or email an example to me (original and altered)?

I think I'm making progress. Not quite what I want. I'll probably be up all night now that I figured out which program to use.
