    I'm going to reopen this thread because it's not about getting a sig made for them, they want information on how to go about making their own. I hope it will make for a good learning thread for anyone who would like to share any of their knowledge with others.

    Oh right

    In that case, I point to the gimp for an image editor of sorts, where you can get started You're not going to get far making a decent sig using MS Paint

    The basics of sig making is:

    take an image.

    prettify it

    add text

    save

    upload.

    when you have these steps down, you can start to play with multiple images and layer modes.

    you have to have a program like photoshop (that's what i use...) it's pretty expensive if you were to buy it. but most people just download it on the internet (i have never done that, so i don't know how)

    but once you have photoshop you can crop the images, add layers and play with them a bit... there are some tutorials (http://www.pixel2life.com/forums/index.php?showforum=22) on how to make them...

    but if you use paint, your results wont turn out good at all... so i suggest you find a good program!

    edit: how do you download gimp?

    The basics of blending. ^^ I wrote this a long time ago though, just edited it a bit. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Open photoshop, then open a new canvas (if you go for a sig, try about 400x150 pixels)
    Open your image, go to the selection tool (the square thing in the upper left hand corner)
    Then you should see a box that says feather toward the top and 0 px inside the feathering box. Put in an amount (I usually use about 30) and select the part of the image you want. The dotted square should turn into a circle like shape. Then go to edit, cut, and paste it onto your empty canvas. The edges should be faded. You can do that with multiple images and place them on the same canvas and they'll look blended together.
    Use the move tool (the arrow with the 4 mini arrows attached to it next to the selection tool) to move particular images around to your liking. Select different layers to edit particular images on the canvas.
