    We do 400x150 mostly.
    But we don't paste images and put text on it, if we want to show something off as sig.

    I actually do 500x200 most of the time.

    I agree with the second sentence, though. Because you put some text on an image doesn't make it a signature. You could make a nice background, brush it, get a render and feather it well, use 20 other tools, fix the colors, add some lightning, blur,smudge and sharpen, add a border etc...

    Not gonna repeat what the others said, but yeah those are not sigs. What I will do is give you the link to a site with 100+ sig tutorials ranging from basic - advanced.

    http://www.peewee1002.co.uk/

    Oh how I wish his site had all these tuts when I first started out. Feel free to pm or ask here if you got questions.

    You still need to work with layers. You basically put some brushes on a background and put a render on it. You should really work with lighting, blur some parts, sharpen others etc..

    An example would be this:



    I still need to work on that, but I don't have much time right now. Anyway, the thing I want to show you is the fact that the girl is actually popping out. Furthermore, the background has many layers, which is very noticeable. I didn't just put some brushes and a render..

    Neat! So by the way, how can i add some borders in a signature?
    all i know is the rectangular marquee.

    i made another one,
    i used some smudge tool here , and more.
    but i still work on layers though. thanks anyway..^^,


    i used this sig as a entry for the theme they made for the contest called "ecchi"
    its a pinoy forum by the way.^^,

    For borders:
    - Make a new layer
    - Press Ctrl+A (select all)
    - Edit > Stroke
    - Usually 1px black is good enough

    When you resize a render (or anything for that matter)
    - Ctrl + T
    - Drag a corner while holding shift.


    Look at tutorials, follow tutorials to the letter, and try to retain as much as possible, it's the best way to improve rather quickly.

    You're gonna suck big time your first few sigs, then it may suddenly just click, and you'll make something that resembles a halfway decent sig, while you think it's amazing.
    That's when you know you're improving.

    Two things you should note:

    1: Sigs don't always need borders
    2: Sigs don't always need text in them, in fact alot of people never get the hang on text (like myself ) but it'll defiantly take you the longest to master.
