    Hey all, I was just wondering what you guys use to create your avatars and signatures, tried a couple of apps so far and not really impressed. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Paint Shop Pro 7. Slightly old now, but it handles everything I throw at it, is great for accurate cut/paste pixel work and unlike Photoshop it loads in 3 seconds flat. [​IMG] I do half the work by hand though and run it through a scanner, it might not be as feature-rich as Photoshop when it comes to fancy brushes and filters if that's what you're planning on using.

    I never change my avatar [​IMG]

    Usually if I'm editing I use Photoshop. However, if you want something cool and easy that doesn't require a download, FotoFlexer.com is quite nice.
