I think the acceptable size is anything under 500X50 pixels. But if you go over, please avoid the dreaded scroll bar that appears on big sigs, it's quite annoying and you'll know what im talking about.

My saying is, Either have a sig or have words, i choose both and i never get a scroll bar, and if you dont get a scroll bar its better but if your to lazy to take out the words in your sig then take out the Image.


By the way, pimping my new sig. I wanted the background to be simple but i guess its to simple and bland now...

EDIT- oops, nevermind, its showing now. Yeah, the backround is just one big Green gradient, but it's simple. Nice work.

Seph, my sig pic is 500 X 80 pixels. That's the normal size, but then it doesn't leave much room for an actual signature.

My gosh, guys, leave me alone! KBell, if you think my sig is too big, you should see some I've seen in StarWars.net. All you can fit is a small sig pic and two words in the tiniest font!!!!! You're not the only one that's annoyed.

And Mamba, a lot of people have that in their sigs, but to please you both, I'll take all of that out. Sheesh

kk, heres how to blend, atleast this is how i do it



For small stuff, like little pictures, use the blur tool, but you have to have some skill because it might turn into crap pretty fast that way



For big stuff,

1) Get 2 pictures that you want to blend together

2) Next put each picure on its own layer puting the picture u want blending on the top. Then using the
rectangle marguee tool on the top layer, make a rectangle selection of what u want blended.

3) Now go to SELECTION>FEATHER. A box will pop up. this will determine come much the pictures
will blend together.

4) Now make sure the rectangle that u made in the beginning is still there. And hit Clrl + C (copy).
this will copy the top image. now click Clrl + V (paste) this will paste the top picture into the feathered
rectangle.


5) now just delete the original layer


You can also get similar results using the Eraser Tool and using a very large brush size. just make sure the pic
you want to blend into the background is on top. like i said

Sorry for double post but the last post i posted was pretty long and i want this one to be read


DJ, I'll do your sig, but i wont have it done until tomorrow maybe, because I got a geometry test tomorrow and i need some studing time


Sam, your sig on the other hand, is one that i would love to make. But you need to tell me what kind of theme you want it to be. Do you want it to be artistic, Dark, Digital, Fantasy etc.? or do you want me to show you some sigs that I've recently created that Im not using at all? Just respond soon, because I'd rather have a quick response rather than wait.

I want it to have a dark atmosphere and to be slightly artistic/fantasy if possible, thanks


If that's to much, you can just make it have a dark atmosphere and slightly artistic.

Yes, you can. In fact, that what's almost everyone uses, except for KBell and I, we use Photoshop.

And Death, you go to Filter->Blur->Blur or Blur More. There's also the smudge tool to blur small parts of an image instead of the whole thing.

Ugh, Filters.


If you want to have it done the right way, you might want to use the Smudge tool. Some Filters look alright, but others are just weird lookin, but if you want experience in PS, stay away from filters

Uhm.....Filters are important, KBell. You use 'em in flaming letters, and I like to use them to make my logos look 3-D and stuff. I don't know what you're talking about.

I dont have any Flame letters


Filters are fine in some situations like for Waves and useful effect like that, but there are so many different alternitives to making something that a filter can make in 1 second. Thats the FUN of PS, creativity, not filtering

Flaming letters isn't a filter, it's a flame-like effect created with several filters.

lol, if there was an easy answer to that question, Everyone would be in this forum taking requests.


If you love working with Photoshop, eventually you start relying on brushes and gradients rather than filers and you'll start learning whole new techniques from thoudands of tutorials.



DJ- LOTS of practice. Mainly the small squares are done in pensil and maybe Beveled alittler big, but the texture might have to be downloaded. Or maybe the entire boarder was downloads

The White Border is a 1 pixel big white pencil. Its probley the easiest to make out of all my sigs

The easiest backrounds to make are all found at www.good-tutorials.com. They have over 1560 Photoshop tutorials in their archives. Go there and check out the "Textures and Pattern" portion of the site. There you will find numerous Tuts on Various effects for Photoshop.
