I dunno It looks a little flat, a stroke somewhere (not sure of the GIMP term if you use GIMP) would bring it out (define) a little i think???

(i hope you don't mind the mild criticism )

Thought I'd just give you a heads up mate. Do you know that your sig has this ugly white border around it....well, when on one of the dark themes anyway!?

No worries mate. Many peeps use the darker styles, so it's always good to make sure you have transparency on. (Made the same mistake before!)

EDIT: Had a few minutes, hope you don't mind. (Saved you the trouble!)

Thank you

Now, how do you get the rounded effect you have on your sig and the one you enhanced for dream? is it just a bevel & emboss layer style?
It's only a small touch, but it makes a massive difference!

You can do it like that also. But you wont believe be if I tell you! Sometimes I just paste the pic into PowerPoint, click on Format and select that! Easy as pie! lol
