Well I am new to the Photoshop scene...

Sigs like THESE (http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/9474/sotfcopyxl2.png) and THESE (http://xbox360achievements.org/images/news/bladestorm2pa2take2sn6.png)My goal is eventually to make on of those jaw dropping pictures...

http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee5/blackvista/FerrariSig.jpg?t=1198026162

My first one...

A simple picture, I took the Ferrari, added a Gaussian blur and then some Ferrari font... nothing special but looks nice and clean.

The Ferrari one is ok, but the second one is just fantastic, simplistic but very effective.

And the one you hve in your sig is kinda cool too.

lol it was inspired by Legend boy's sig, his is the I am legend logo and he "painted" in boy, so I did the same but with the vista logo... I have so much free time after school now due to my broken xbox... lol

They would be cool but they don't say "Blista x360a". Other wise they are looking almost as sexy as my sig. Except not really, cause...

lol, Ahhh Blista x360a

Do you guys think anyone would want a sig like mine?

Or should I not waste my time?

For me personally the two sigs you have made are too big. I like the traditional short but wide style. I know that's also how many others feel, other wise they are fine. But for me I'm sticking with my Zebras!

I would definitely want a sig like yours but probably a bit smaller, but thats if i could ever even make one! I have never made a sig in my life and i wouldn't know where to start so thats that idea out of the window, i will never have a sig lol.

Actually i did make a sig once but

A) it was too large file size to put on the site
B) i have no idea how to make the file size smaller!

The wide look is generally better, I made a tall sig the other day and the main reason I didn't like it was because of the dimensions

There I fixed the dimensions, I can do a bunch; Electrified, rust, erosion...

BTW-Custom, how do you vingette? or blur the edges...

I think what he's asking is an example of a signature that already has "vingette".

I like your current signature right now, Vista. I think it looks pretty nice. ;)

Oh in that case, I really don't know what to search I just want to round out the corners and edges, and make it look smooth...

I yea i see what you mean what you said in my thread

are you using photoshop?

if so go to the layers box on the right hand side scroll down to "background" and then next to the name on the left click the little box and it will hide so when you save it as a .PNG it will not show up

or click on the background layer > delete > save PNG > upload :)

Hope this helps...

You could also start with a transparant background. When you select File > New, there should be a space title Background Type.

Selecting transparant will start you off with the checkerboard background that becomes transparant when you save the file as a .png.

O whoops, thanks for the help...

I will fix that tomorrow when I am on the computer w/ photoshop... Anyway does anyone have tips for using PS7. I am used to the quick selection tool in CS3 b/c I use it in school. I was going to have master chief out of his background and just have him and the text but I couldn't manage with the stupid magic wand :(

never use the magic wand to cut out a picture .. the best way is to use the extract option under filters .. and zoom in really close up and start outlining the edges .. or just zoom the image regularly and use an eraser to trim away the parts you don't want .. some people use the pen tool but i can't cope with that ..


Oh and by smoothing do you mean having rounded edges like the gamercard i am rocking ? if you want edges that are round you need to feather the image .. you should always start off making sigs with a blank canvas there is the otion to have a transprent background when you starting a new file .. and then use the eliptical tool to make you rectangle or square or whatever you doing .. and when you select the eliptical tool there is an option on the tool bar at the top to "feather" depending on how many pixels you wish to feather the image you will get round edges instead of sharp edges.. hope it helps.

Dude, you have the coolest sig I've literally ever seen....and you want another?!?!?!

:p

Really though, Ashen did a great job with that sig. I can navigate myself around photoshop pretty well, but that is just incredible.



And to go back on thread topic....I agree with Xtermin8r, the sig you have now is really good for a simple sig. I love the look of it. Looks like you have some work to do on the others, but that will come with time....the sig one you have though looks great. Keep it up!
