Signature Area Logos

Hello...can anyone please tell me where to find the html used to post the credit card image logos in the signature area?

Thanks.

 

Edit: Nevermind...I figured it out myself. If anyone wants to know how I did it, please send a PM. I don't know if my way is the easiest, but it works.

Re: Signature Area Logos

This info is from p- and all credit is due to him:

 

If you go to "My Settings" 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.  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.

 

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 red 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 pic to space them a bit.  

 

If you want to make them clickable, 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 gren text is what you see if your mouse hovers, the blue is where clicking takes you, and the red is the pic itself.  It will look like this:

 

 

 After all of my HTML code, I typed the limits in.  Some people put the limits right in the pics, but that can make it funny.

 

Have fun with this, and good luck on your journey!

Re: Signature Area Logos

That is a great post but I do not have anything on my profile page about images...do you have any suggestions or ideas why I do not?

Re: Signature Area Logos

You can get images anywhere online. Then you just insert the url where it tells you to in the code. That code will resize images to fit in a little space for your sig file.

Re: Signature Area Logos

I understood you to say that I need to upload them to myfico. That is the part that I do not see anywhere on my profile page. I checked the help section that spoke of the same thing. That there should be a gallery where I can upload pics.

Re: Signature Area Logos

idk im not uploading anything myself. I am just pointing to another url where they exist on the internet. I see how other people have pictures in myfico. I am not sure how they got them there. If you need a spot to host a picture to point to there are several free sites for that online like tinypic.com
