I know that it can't be more than 150kb, but how big is it supposed to be physically (like in pixels)? I'm always starting out with a really big canvas just so that I have room to move things around, then shrinking it down later, but the trouble is I don't know what size to shrink it down to. Some of them are coming out too big and some too small. Is there a standard size?

I usually start my canvas at 640x480 & try to keep it smaller. Then I crop it down and generally I don't make any siggies larger than 375 tall and it can't be wider than 600px. The max size of a siggy in JM is 600x600, but that's the total size, so when I make for other people, I try to allow for room for tickers, blinkies, etc. I generally try to keep as close to 350px tall max, and I will go up to 600 wide.
I hope that helps a little!

I make them, on average, about 600x350. It varies per siggy, but yea, it can't be any larger than 600x600 anyways cause thats all the signature window allows.
