    I think it looks fairly good (compared to what I could make at least [​IMG] )

    I also think that you should have a border.
    But, ya know, that's what we think.

    You've done a good job, may I ask what tutorial you used?

    If you look at sonicslasher sig the boarder defines the edges of the sig. On yours you have some white spots on the body of the man and below the "Bru" of your name at the edges of the sig that blend into the white of the forum board a boarder would correct this.
    Try this (photoshop)
    Step 1 : Make a new layer above all other layers and then select all, and do a 1 pixel black inside stroke. Stroke can be found by Edit > Stroke

    Step 2 : Make a new layer above the 1 pixel black stroked layer and select all, do a 3 pixel black inside stroke, then a 2 pixel white inside stroke.

    Step 3 : Turn the layer just made (in step 2) so that the settings are on overlay.

    It has border now too just added. But i think i won't be able to change the font anymore since i saved it as jpeg so it's now just one picture and not a load of layers. And it's all locked T-T next time i also save as png

    you mean .psd right?

    a png is pretty much the same as jpeg just that it's file size is bigger (and maybe the quality)
