I thought 200x500 was the standard? :scratch:

Think I read it in the signature competition thread.

I'm using paintshop pro8, think it's about 7 years old. The only program I have that's newer is photoshop CS3, but I only tried working on that a couple of times and it never really grew on me.

I think that's where I wanna head next, text effects and textures. Haven't got a clue what I'm doing though. For the effects on the "4.cesc" text I just flipped the letters, then used the smudge tool to distort it a little.

The cesc one is quality man. The only reason I'm not using your Nasri Noel sig is because I'm a little tired of my posts taking up half the page.

Photoshop is so much easier than Corel or Jasc, there are a few tutorials on here have a try sometime. ;)
Google photoshop text effects you will find 100's of tutorials, your going about it the right way though i like the way you reflected the text, it appears as if its a water reflection.
To do it cleaner, i mean as if its reflected upon a smooth surface, just flip as you did & use a soft brush to erase the bottom, then reduce the opacity.
Again, fonts is another, there are literally 1000's of free ones on http://www.dafont.com/ just download, unzip, locate your fonts folder in the windows file then drag over to folder.



Hope that helps. :)

Thanks, I could definitely use some more fonts, will check that out.

I've had to get used to using the soften brush with rendering. One nifty little thing on my ancient paintshop program is the background eraser, makes rendering very easy.

Loads of ways to render, magic eraser is ok for quick renders which dont need to be perfect....but then im a perfectionist by nature. Magnetic lasoo is good, but personally i prefer the pen tool. :)
