Profile tweaks

I've had a few people ask about how to put the cards in a signature. Note, you must reach the rank of "MEMBER" to use HTML signatures.  Here's a quick rundown:

 

If you go to "My Settings" and then "personal information," you can actually type HTML code into your signature.

The first step is to add the pictures you want to your MyFico images. I found most of my card images by logging in to the online account at the bank, or looking at their application pages. Download an image of each card, and then open it in paint and trim it, removing any extra outside borders, shadows, etc. Don't worry about shrinking it.

Then, at the bottom right of your profile go to images and upload them. Some people upload them to other hosting sites; that works too. **edit: Note that new members will have to use outside hosting, as you can't host images until your ranking has moved up a bit.** Once you have the images saved, right click on them and choose "open image in new tab" if you are using chrome. The address in your bar will be the address of the picture. If you find an image that looks good without editing, you can just refer to that address instead of uploading one, but be careful. If you are using someone else's picture and they change it, that will be your new sig pic.

After that, insert the HTML code in your signature that refers to the picture. Here is one of mine:

<img src="http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/2999iB646F36C0B07E857" height="50">

The code above makes the card appear like this:


The part that says height="50" shrinks it down. The blue text is the URL address of the picture.

Do this again for multiple cards. If you string them together, it will look like this in your signature settings:
<img src="http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/2999iB646F36C0B07E857" height="50"><img src="http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/2999iB646F36C0B07E857" height="50">

And like this in your real sig:



As long as you set the height the same for each, they will look nice. If you make them too tall they won't fit, too small and they'll look funny. I left a bit of white at the right edge of each of my pics to space them a bit.

If you want to make them clickable links, use this code:

<a title="Amex Unicorn" href="<http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/SmorgasBoard/The-New-Amex-Unicorn-Card/m-p/1859359>"><img src="http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/2999iB646F36C0B07E857" height="50"></a>

The title is what you see if your mouse hovers, the href is where clicking takes you, and the img is the pic itself. It will look like this:


I typed my scores above and limits below. If you have trouble lining up the limits, you can make a pic for those too. Some of us made one pic with all of the cards together, but it can be hard to get them all to the right size without resolution loss, so this method seems to work better.

Enjoy!

Here is a simpler version of the instructions courtesy of DODFire:

1. Find the picture you want to use on the internet

2. Host the image somewhere online such as photobucket.

3. Go to your settings on myfico

4. In your signature block paste this code <img height="45" src="">

5. Copy the link to your picture from photo bucket. It will look like this: http://i1305.photobucket.com/albums/s560/brcalder/flagship2_zpsbdf4e2b1.jpg

6. Paste the link between the quotation marks in the code that you previously put in your signature line. <img height="45" src="Paste image link here">

7. Repeat steps above for each card you wish to post in your signature block.

Good luck.

Also, there is no need to post when you are testing your sig.  Just hit your last post and it will be or not me on your last comment.  Then you just double click back to your settings and retry if needed.  Just a hint

Either way works, but this image might be too big to fit in your sig.  I see you have gif creator software, you might consider making a gif that scrolls them.  That would look cool.

Re: Profile tweaks

I don't see an option to upload pictures as well. Did they remove this feature?
