You may use this one instead ..... it is made by Nick !

EDIT : As the text is white, it appears to be merged with the background . Save it as png image, you will see the text and the logo only .

The psd file is attached (can also be opened with gimp, corel photopaint etc) which has all the transparent layers. Just remember to save your finished image as a png file before you upload it to the forums as this supports transparency

Before you go spending your money on software just to create sigs and avatars why don't you try out GIMP. It's free and like I said you could follow some of the tutorials untill your comfortable with it. If you then want to develop further you could go for one of the more professional packages like Corel or PS etc.
Download the trial versions and try them out before you pick the one that suits you best.
Thank you for the information

I have finally made myself put a bit of time into learning this GFX stuff and thought I would share my first attempt.

I was fairly happy with the background and the addition of the 'Seven Forum' logo but couldn't quite get my head around how I would like the 'JDobbsy1987' text and not too happy with finished product so something to work on there
I threw the badges in for good measure


Suggestions are welcome

Great start Jamie.................
Just keep practicing and experimenting with backgrounds, borders and text.
Nick was spot on when he recommended the trial versions of Adobe and Corel Draw Suite before you plunk down hard earned cash.
Check out their free tutorials along with a bunch of them done by Nick.
Just have fun!!!

After a little more playing I'm starting to think its not just software I need to get used to but i need to get my artistic head on too

I can think of all sorts at times but as soon as I open the software my mind goes blank

last attempt before bed
Tried to get by without the tutorials this time...

Attachment 155949

still some work to do but I must say, I am learning a lot and having fun
