EDIT: My biggest problem is that when I resize it, PS completely messes the sig up. Now I know why this is, but argh!
Is there some way to keep the quality nice and high while resizing?
Are you working at a large image quality and then resizing down, always work as high res as possible and then resample/resize/save to a lower size this way you have less chance of loosing quality ...
Take my sig for eg. If I exported this image at 1:1 it would be 3249x751 px 1.78Mb ... this is way to high but if I save it at 650x150 px which is the forums max I loose very little quality

PooMan I was about to suggest you to her, to have a look I knew you would understand her needs on the Sig.

I make all my sigs in 1300x300, so it shouldn't really be a problem, but I'll try to double the size to 2600x600 for my next one. Thanks for the tip

OK, thanks! But it'll have to wait until tomorrow though, since it's nearly 1 am here and I'm sending this from my phone.

i was having a play last night and came up with this.
not too keen on it and wouldnt use it as a sig, i like the crest and tartan in my sig but it was interesting to see what i could do.
its still early days but im thinking i will keep this and see how i can improve in the future, think of it as a bench mark

Nick I'm glad to see you finally changed your sig. You'd had the same one for the whole of my 2yrs, 4 months here.
