i am trying to create an image to use as my forum signature.

the effect i am trying to create is a banner below my posts on this forum and others.

the problem i am experiencing is that the image gets distorted when it is displayed (i.e. the aspect ratio is altered when it displays, normally squashed).

how do i get around this? when i reduce the dimensions of the image to very small the aspect ratio stays correct but it is obviously to small to achieve the banner effect i want. the distortion occurs even when the image does even come close to filling the width of the screen....

mine is just a general question. i havent tried doing this yet on clubsnap but on other forums it is the norm. in anycase, normally link image to photobucket, flickr etc. forums dont normally have enough hard disk space to accomodate users pics in sigs....
