Okay, this is a tutorial on how to upload a signature to your profile. There are a few different ways to do it, but this is the easiest way to do it.

First, a few ground rules. As you should already know, you must have an IMA Clan approved signature to become a member. You must keep an active signature throughout your stay with us. An approved clan signature consists of the following;
1. Must be 500x143 pixles
2. Must have Approved clan logo. Some may be found here (http://clanima.net/showthread.php?2474-Clan-logo). Others are available upon request. If you wish to use your own creation of an IMA Clan logo, you must get it approved first by Leadership.
3. Your name, with *=IMA=* tags in it if you are a member. If you are not a member, then just your name.

If you need help in creating a signature, please post here (http://clanima.net/forumdisplay.php?72-Arts-amp-Banners) requesting a signature. There are many talented people in IMA Clan who would be happy to help you with the creation of a signature, time permitting. If you would like to take a go at it on your own, a simple free program you can use is Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/)
