Hi Gav.

If you dont mind, I am going to say one thing that Nick (PoomanUK, my GFX teacher) told me. Before publishing a sig, have a closer look at its finishing. A little touchup is needed there to the beautiful design you made. See, some parts are falling out of the sig area.

We are also noticing in the psd file that the part belongs to layer 4.

And that needs attention.

The easiest way to get rid of the extra part is ...
Ctrl+click on the main design, that is layer 1's thumbnail in the layers pallet. Take any of the lasso tools. Right click on the design area and select inverse. select layer 4 and hit enter.

When applied, the sig will look to be very complete.

Hope you will not mind. Saying it to you because it is you only. Lately I have stopped saying anything about the betterment of the sig designs to people because they accept it otherwise. I hope you will understand that my intention is not to make me look smart. It is some guidance that I have got from this forum, and I took all those guidance, always. I know the results.

Thanks for pointing that out Arc, I really appreciate it. To be be honest this is a flaw of mine which I always overlook until I post the sig to the forums, I then normally go back and find the offending layer and tidy it up. In this case I didn't even notice it, my eyes really must be failing me! I'll go in and tidy the sig up now that you've pointed it out.

And as for pointing things out to me Arc I really appreciate it, I'll always take constructive criticism and hints and tips on board, I'd be pretty stupid not to.

What I need to do is start increasing the canvas size when the sig is finished to tidy up any layers. It becomes really clear then.

Here's the workspace all cleaned up.

And the tidied up sig.

It can be even more of a problem with CorelDRAW. I usually create an empty rectangle the same size as the display area and power clip everything into it.

I could never grasp CorelDraw although it's been a long time since I tried it last.
