Windows 7: Custom Made Sig and Avatar [14]

I need to watch those videos about 10 more times
Your sig looks P.D.G. to me homie
The videos made me see what I was doing wrong = everything
I primarily use pictures as the background so it makes it difficult to visualize colors from scratch and blending them to the waves so that's why I was going for bland and thought the chrome.. would sort of look the best ?
I'll work on it I guess I can only get better ?
Cheers.

No where near the price either and that's the come-on

Isn't that the truth.

Thanks and agreed
I must say, G'MIC and Layer Effects are two great plugins, and while Layer Effects is nowhere near Photoshop's layer styles, G'MIC is a great freeware replacement for FilterForge in Photoshop.

I'm only using GIMP to familiarize myself since I plan to make a basic tut on how to create a signature, and since GIMP is freeware I thought it'd be best to use that program because most people won't have a spare copy of Ps laying around.

Thanks mate
The key is practice. The more sigs you make, the better you'll become and the easier it'll be. The same really goes for color matching. You shouldn't stick to one color (picture) though, drop a Colorize layer on it and see what you get

In case you don't know, you can find the colorize option here (I installed a custom theme, but it should look the same);

Very much true yes.
But do note that Photoshop CS2 is available for free, and that an upgrade disk to CS4 is available for only $110,- (and an upgrade to CS3 for only $50.-). Now I have worked with both GIMP and Photoshop I can say that that's absolutely worth every single penny.

I have Creative Cloud and I pay nothing for it
I however have no clue how much my dad pays for it, as I have it via his company.

You are confusing CC with CS;

Creative Cloud is based on a membership. You pay for a period and can use your software for the period you paid for. The license you have will verify itself once every month, and as long as you pay you're good. If you don't pay your software will be blocked.

Creative Suite comes as a one time payment. Although there are various plans; you can purchase the entire package of CS apps (The Master Collection, will cost you somewhere near $4.000,-), which includes Photoshop, After Effects, DreamWeaver and many others. You can purchase single apps (From $300 to >$1.000), and you can purchase an EDU license (student license, $350-450, depends on which version). For as far as I know all licenses last for ever (even the EDU one, although they might come after you if you start a company with this license) and there are absolutely no additional fees. But do note that "upgrading" from versions (CS3 > CS4) and sub versions (CS3 > CS3 Extended) does cost money.

I think he means Photo Shop Creative Suite 6. There is no monthly charge, just the initial cost. No monthly charge for Corel Draw either.

Possibly next year I'll revisit the idea of cs5 or 6 but now I need the gi-joe with the kung-fu grip
100-150.00 u.s. wouldn't be bad for a new toy if it doesn't require a monthly fee which thanks everyone for the info,
Gotta have magic eraser though
Cheers.

If you can get a hold of say CS5 you can upgrade to CS6 for not to much money
