Not really a picture as such, but this tool might give you a starting idea

Does generate a bitmap, and is fully configurable

hummm, not exactly what I was looking for.
Thanks for the thought though.
It is kind of hard to explain so ill just go for the main thing.
I want to be able to make it so that I have a sig on another forum that when I make a post shows one pic on someone com, and a different pic on someone elses com on the same post.
Is this possible?
If so how to do this?

In your first post, that image is generated using (most likely) PHP using its image editing power. IP addresses, hostmasks, browsers, and operating systems are easily picked up using a few lines of PHP code, and all you need to do is use a few functions, like imagettftext(), and it'll spit out the modified image using a previously specified image resource.

Now rephrase your second post.

Like in the same post I made !mo0chan! sees

Wow, I think that would be incredibly annoying. I can only imagine it would have to be done with some kind of Java script that would randomly chose a pic and associate it with someone's IP and possibly send a cookie to retain those settings. Good luck figuring it out, I can't help ya. Sorry.

So you just want the pictures to be random? There are lots of random image scripts out there that you could use. Search for a random image rotation script or something. Or you could put it in an iFrame, and load those pages randomly. But if you want it to persistently be a certain way for a certain person, that's much more difficult.

With a short little PHP script it's easy. Depending on what the criteria are, you can have it run through a set of IF statements and echo the appropriate image, like for example:


if (some condition) {
echo "\"\"";
} else if (some other condition) {
echo "\"\"";
} else {
echo "\"\"";

This is saved in a seperate PHP file on your server, and you would put an iframe linked to that file as your signature.

And remember, those criteria have to be accesible using PHP code, like IP addresses, operating systems, browser or even time.
