    I figured we needed a post to list any tutorials we know of that could help out fellow sig makers. If you haave a tutorial you made, or one you know of, post it here.

    I will start off by just saying how to host and then post an image in your signature.

    Step 1. Make a signature.
    Step 2. Go to www.imageshack.us and click "browse" then
    find the image
    you made, double click it, and then click the box "Host it!"
    Step 3. Copy the URL it gives you, it will be in [img][/img]
    tags, copy that full line.
    Step 4. Go to this site, click Profile at the top, and scroll
    down to the signature option.
    Step 5. Paste the link you copied, and scroll down and hit
    submit.
    Step 6. Check an earlier post you have made to see if your
    signature is their, but be sure you have followed the allowed size.
    Step 7. If the image does not show up, you either put in the
    wrong address, put a space in it, or the websites host is down (which rarely happens with imageshack.
    Step 8. Take a look at the image you made, admire it, and
    you're done!

    Please keep this thread clean of spam, this is a thread dedicated to helping all sig makers learn the ins and out the easy way.

    Basic Grid Tutorial.
    by: The mOBSCENE

    Step 1: make a new document (i use 5x5 or 7x7)
    Step 2: pick a color for the lines (i use black or white mainly)
    Step 3: change your brush tool to your pencil tool and get the 1px hard brush from your basic brushes.
    Step 4: make a verticle line on the very left and a horizontal line on the very bottem.
    Step 5: Goto "Edit > Define Pattern" and make a name for it.
    Step 6: Change your gradient tool to your Paintbucket tool and go up top and switch the "Fill" from "foreground" to "pattern"
    Step 7: Click the drop down arrow and find your pattern.
    Step 8: make a new layer on your sig that you are modifying and then click it. it should make your pattern.

    you can mess around with the blending options and layer properties and what not to modify it. you can also mess around with different patterns. dont just hold yourself to boxes... you can make verticle, horizontal, diagonal, and even unique patterns. you just have to test what you can do.

    Here is another explanation on installing fonts. led-zeppelin already stated that he couldnt understand weeeewoooo's explanation so i thought that i would post this one two in case other people are having similar problems.

    (this is what i do)
    1. Make a folder where ever you want and name it DL Fonts (or whatever you want) i made mine right in the c:/ directory because its up top and easy to find.
    2. find your font from whatever site you visited and download that .zip file or unzip it to that folder that you made.
    3. if you havent unzipped the file already, goto that folder and unzip it withen that folder.
    4. goto either your Control Panel and bring up your fonts screen or follow this directory: C:/WINDOWS/Fonts and this should bring up all of your fonts.
    5. click File>Install New Font
    6. from here, goto the folder you made and it should upload your font onto the list. click it and click ok and your set!

    Cutting Renders Made Simple
    It's really easy to cut renders.

    1. First you want to get a picture well over the size you intend to use it at.
    2. Next use the fill tool to fill the background lime green (or any other color that doesn't match the image. You want to be able to see every rough edge possiable.)
    3. Next use the magic wand to mask all the area you don't want to lose and then delete the unmasked area (unwanted background).
    4. Then use the smooth eraser tool set to around 3-6 pixals and then erase all the rest of the area you want removed. (You need a steady hand to get close to the image, but practice will make perfect.)
    5. After all the back ground has been removed you need to feather the render mask around 2 to 3 pixals.
    6. Invert your mask so that the red mask is covering the image, expect for 3 pixals on the edge of the render.
    7. Then use a Gaussian blur set around 1.5 to 2 pixals to smooth the edges.
    8. Now that your done removing the background you can cut and paste out the render onto your sig file.

    Aylias and Cheesy's Abstract Tutorial

    Quote Originally Posted by Aylias

    Basically start off with a black backround. Create a new layer and begin a white (100% Opacity) brushing layer. Most of the brushes in the set have an abstract touch to them so almost all of them will fit. Once that layer approves by you, begin another layer with some black touch up brushing (That is if you want, I didn't but it is always an option). Lower the opacity on the black too 34% and just barely add it too the sig. After that's complete, goto Layer>New Adjustment Layer> Color Balance, and find a color that will suit your needs (just remember, that color will be inverted so the color you pick will eventually changed to it's opposite color). I picked a dirt type color, that's how you will get the light blue. Then Once those steps are completed goto Layer>New Adjustment Layer> Invert and press OK. By then it should be done. That's exactly how I did it, I don't know how it will turnout for you. It all depends on the way you brush, the technique is everything

    ~~~~~~

    If you need more help, or this information isn't enough for you just contact me via PM or perform a reply.

    But, nice Tut Aylias.

    This tutorial will teach you how to make an image pop out of your sig. It has become very popular amongst different sites, so I decided to make a tutorial on it. There are many ways to do this, however this is my preferred way.

    Preview
    user posted image

    1. Open any 2 images of your choice. (One image being a background, and one being the image that you want to pop-out.)

    Image 1 350 x 130
    user posted image

    Image 2 282 x 200
    user posted image

    2. Now create a new document. Make sure it is Transparent background. The size must be:
    - The width of Image 1
    - The height of Image 2

    3. Drag your two images into the new document, and position them like mine below.

    user posted image

    Notice how the width is filled by Image 1, and the height is filled by Image 2.

    4. Add any other features you like, such as text or borders, and your done!
