I need some help with my sig. I keep trying to upload an image, but it keeps saying invalid file. I know the image isn't too big, because I've seen people with Sigs just like it. Help, please?

What I'd do is upload the image to a place like PhotoBucket (http://photobucket.com/) or Imageshack (http://imageshack.us/) and then copy/paste the URL (and add the IMG tags) to your sig. Uploading a sig to PC doesn't always work. So that's why it's just better to upload your image offsite and then add it with IMG tags.

I don't know what that means. It's an image for the personality test that you see on some people's sigs.

You mean like Html? Is that it?

File type. Such as PNG, bitmap, GIF ect.

personality quiz? Those sites usually give you the option to copy+paste it in HTML or BBcode format. PC uses the BBcode format, not HTML.

...but I don't see how you would get an "invalid image" notice unless something's wrong with that website. :/

I'm not computer savvy. So, I really don't know. Sorry.

Yeah, it gave the Html. But I honestly don't know how to upload it.

go ahead and paste what you were trying to add, in the exact way you were adding it to your sig.

If its an image link, and you were adding it to PC's sig picture thing, just paste that image link.
