Both of you have great sigs.

Though Archie, who's that guy in yours? I'm sure I've seen the character somewhere.

I think you've got telepathic powers, Jaidyn - I was just asking myself the same thing about that guy in Archie's sig ;-D

Thanks for the tips Gary, I'll change the pauses later. Have you waited for the page to fully load? The image goes much faster then Or do you think it's still too slow?

Thanks Danny Fixed it, being my usual incompetent self, the loop setting in photoshop was set to "Once" rather than "Forever"



I think it could do with a longer pause at the start and the end
That is VERY cool Tom

Thanks guys - really appreciate the support

In the meantime, since Jaidyn did not like the magenta shade of the sig I made for him, here it is again...in yellow for all three forums.
Glad you like it Athene I should have it all finished by the end of today. I've finally managed to get a video layer in photoshop so there's nothing stopping me now

Really nice sigs Athene! They look incredible in yellow Great job as usual!

Athene, that is a carbon fiber texture ... Carbon Fiber Patterns - Free Photoshop Brushes at Brusheezy! . I have sharpen and resized it using the blending options of photoshop.

Jaidyn, the character is Snow Villiers from final fantasy 13 He is there in a few of my sigs !

Tom, I dont know what I should say .... it is beyond my capacity to express the design you have designed for Athene . Hats off to you

Ah, thanks. I knew I'd played a game with him in it.

Yes Tom I think the animation could be 2X what it is, longer end pause and the text moved left a bit. But, hey, I can't even make animigifs.

Okay, just checking I'll have a fiddle with it and see what looks best.

Neither could I before yesterday

Tom, do not stay up late and slog away at the sig hour after hour, otherwise I'm going to have one very bad conscience :-)

In the meantime, I can say the following about the graphics editing/manipulating programs I've tried out so far:
-I find Corel Paint Shop Pro X4 really difficult to handle. Applying one's own gradient is complicated, and there does not seem to be a ctrl+click command to simply load a layer object or shape like in Adobe Photoshop (corresponds to right-clicking on a layer and choosing "Alpha to Selection" in GIMP).
-GIMP is brilliant once one is used to the user interface. Some filters still need a bit of sophistication, though (Pagecurl, for instance), and there do not seem to be many preset shapes or bevels.
-Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 (10 was just released, by the way) is my favourite besides GIMP.
So using the combination of PSE9 and GIMP, I'm perfectly happy :-)
