No SF badges in the sig.

As I identify myself in my ex-pat life more as a Finnish - Saxon than Finnish - German, I would like to keep the Finnish flag orb and blue white Windows logo orb but change the German flag orb to Saxon. I will include the flag of the State of Saxony at the end of this post with other needed material.

I am very satisfied with Arc's work with this sig, I just feel it's time to revamp it. Here some ideas of mine:

I would be very pleased if you would like to try, even though I will and cannot promise I will use your sig; I do not swap sigs every now and then, I only use one for a longer period meaning I select the best in my eyes and use it exclusively.

Here some material needed:

Orbs (Finland and Windows) and flag of Saxony (no orb available):

Samples of a nosing glass:OK, thanks in advance!

Hey Kari,

I think it's safe to say that that's the most precise description I've ever seen someone give of the sig he wants

Anyhow, as Arc made your original sig, I'd say that it's only natural that he would be the one to change it, as he has all the original files, and, quite frankly, It'd feel awkward (at least for me) to tinker with someone else's perfect work and then claim credit for it..


Hope it turns out as good as the original

I have had sigs from the GFX Gods PooManUK and Arc, they remain my idols . Anyway, I would be very interested to see other members of this respectable team to take a new approach.

I am especially keen to see what Julian could come with, and must in all honesty tell you geeks that if Julian decides to give this a try, I most probably select it as this far all I have seen I really like what he's done.

This, of course, means not that I want only Julian to suggest a new pimped sig. The more the merrier .

That's the thing to do Wenda is keep plugging away I know others have said the same thing but a couple years ago I can hardly draw a black line so practice does make perfection.

Hmm, it seems that I've missed quite a few posts

Looking good!
Only one thing, the standard size of a signature is 650x150px. And most of us create our sigs at double of that (1300x300), so that the result is a tad nicer and higher in quality. When you do that, just make sure to save the big file as a .png and then resize the .png instead of the .psd, as it'll only resize the image that way, and not the effects.
Or you could make a composite snapshot (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E) of the 1300x300 .psd and resize that, completely up to you
