Essentially the same way as you would to a post.

1. Upload the image to a place to which you can hotlink, for example a user gallery here on LAF or add it as an attachment to a post. External hosting is preferrable to reduce strain on our server.
2. Get the uploaded image's "image URL" ( in most browsers, right-click the displayed image and it should show in the context menu), which should end in a fileformat such as jpg, gif or png.
3. Copy/paste said image URL into your signature field and enclose it in [IMG] tags.

Please ensure beforehand that the image isn't too large in dimensions and filesize (web banner size is fine) and is not an animation.
