    Don't save it as .gif since it makes the sig look, well, cheap.
    I always use .jpeg and save at 96% quality to make it less than 80kb's.

    No offense, but even if the quality is maxed, it'll probably still look.. cheap.

    Maybe add.. well maybe try to make it not look like a bunch of bumbled up objects against an annoying background? I mean no offense really.

    Needs a border, and imo the objects should also be embossed.
    Also what KingdomBlade said, this is kinda..... well it'll be hard to make it look *good*
    GIF can support a much higher quality image than JPEG, which relies on artifacts to reduce filesize.
    i.e. as per usual you've got everything back to front.

    EDIT: I wouldn't recommend JPEG or GIF for anything though, as PNG is better in every way imaginable.

    Why isn't the opacity set to full?
    It looks weird, the 3DS being pink and the GBAtemp mascot being greenish. [​IMG]
    Also, just a tip: Always stick to one color in text.
    How about a nice offer: I'll make you a siggy when I have time, and it'll have your Mii and friend code.
    Just send me a proper pic of your Mii or even better, the QR code. [​IMG]

    well it's cool
    but try to fotoshop it so the colours don't overlap your images
    after that you will get a much nicer sign

    Images should be 'on top' of the background. So as not to recolour them. Create background gradient then place images on a separate layer on top. If I were you I'd just stay away from rainbows all together though.

    Why rainbow background? [​IMG] It's making the pictures in your sig a bit off...

    Never use cheap-looking serif fonts.
    Add a border to make it look better
    Make everything go with the flow

    Oh, thank goodness you said it Anto - a part of me inside died when I read Alan's statement. [​IMG]

    As for the sig, well, it's lacking quality. Try making everything look less, edgy?
    To me, it looks like a signature made in MS-Paint, if MS-Paint supported simple layering.
    Also, all the colours are clashing, and the images look rather sickly. Try sticking to a central colour theme, rather than a rainbow-gradient look.
