This is one of my tutorials in English. If there is anything you don't understand, please send me a message or ask it in this topic. This tutorial is kinda long and has a lot of different textures in it so it might take a while to complete it.

Edit: This tutorial was made for Photoshop CS2
Some tips:

- If your render is too big and you want to make it smaller, press ctrl+t and drag the corners of the renders while holding shift. Holding shift will make sure that your render still has the same proportions.

- If you don't like the way a texture looks in your sig, feel free to skip a step or use another texture. Tutorials are something that will help you make a sig and teach you new techniques, you don't have to copy the model sig exactly ;)

- Erase parts that don't look nice.

Great tutorial.

If I had the resources, I'd be tempted to try it. :)

I attempted to run through it, but the programme I use doesn't have the option to do some of the stuff you've said to do (or at least I don't think it does...). :(

Great tut though! :D

The tut was made for Adobe Photoshop CS2 and I think you can follow the tut in Adobe Photoshop CS3 too. Too bad you can't do the tut :(

Its not a good tut its an excellent tutorial. :clap:
After following it myself, Here is my outcome:

Image

I added a few extras and applied the image 3x at the end, with screen opacity 18% /desat opacity at 30% then finally a warming photo filter at 60%, erasing the bits i didnt like on each apply image layer, I also added a 1pxl gaussian blur to the reflected text, hindsight says i should have erased more on the 1st set of textures earlier on at the start in part 1. :hiding:
At the very end before adding the 2 stroke layers i filled a layer in black set it to 55% normal & erased the central area.
Overall happy with the outcome.

The only error i found was on part 3, (im already very familiar with this style of text reflection) in CS2 its EDIT/transform/flip vertical rather than Image as stated in tut, one thing i would add to the tutorial is on part 3 again you need to mention that the 3rd duplicate layers on the christian & surname for the reflection need to be nudged down, i know that sounds like common sense but when you have people who are just starting out with photoshop - well u know what i mean. ;)

Thanks again Saskia, really enjoyed this tut & it was very easy to follow & well explained.
Look forward to having a bash at any more tutorials you may have drawn up.

(Next time im on PA, ill look this one up there & add thanks to your profile)

:biggrin:

You just drag the image (in this case texture 1) onto your workspace, using the move tool. ;)

Good attempt, much better than my early stuff, Keep it up hun, patience is the key. ;)

It's not that bad :) Your sig might look better with a smaller render.
