    Ok... As promised I would work on creating " My own " signature... Although I grabbed fonts and some tutorial idea's from the web, I don't think that is copying someone's work is it? :confused: ..... Anyway what do you think for my first creation? P.S. Be nice.. :)

    Thanks a lot.... I never thought it would be that hard to create something that looks like something...... It's a bit ' dirty ' as they say, but it's a start, Or should I say a " beginning " :) :) once again thanks....

    Strange, in two of your three posts, the background transparency looks perfect...

    I like it, if we're allowed to leave suggestions, make a copy without the two red thingy's, see how it looks.

    Keep it up, it only get's better from here.

    Beginning...Reading tutorials is a learning experience not copying.

    Looks good...When you do your graphics always start with a canvas 2-3 times the final size for maximum clarity.

    Well thanks for input... :) I had it that way first 'Without the red thingy's' but it looked like it was missing something... Maybe I'll change it back.. About the background... The reason it looks fine in some posts is because the background color in ntfs.org threads are different color simultaneously.... I'd like to make the background transparent but every time I save the pic the background is visable.... Do I save it with a different extension like .png, .psd, .gif or am I on the wrong track?

    Cheers!

    Save it as .gif and not .jpg

    Beginning...you need to save it as a transparent .gif.

    Mask the Background layer then merge the existing layers. If you want to merge but save your individual layers do this:

    Control+Shift+Alt+N for new layer then while still holding Control+Shift+Alt click E and you will have a new merged layer.

    Then go Help>Export transparent image on the toolbar and follow the instructions from there.

    This is for Photoshop...I think I remember you saying that's what you use?

    Sorry...I'ts only a couple steps.

    You could mask the background layer then go to File>SaveforWeb and select .gif;)

    ...or how about dragging the "background" layer to the trash barrel, then clicking Save For Web in the File menu. In the Save For Web box, choose Gif 64 or 32 Dithered in the dropdown menu next to Settings.

    Also, in the Matte dropdown, choose "none".


    Here, check out this picture, and notice the settings...
