the text doesn't really go with the image, and its slightly stretched.

if you add a border it might look better.

what program did you use? gimp/ps/psp?

trust me...you dont need photoshop. gimp is pretty much photoshop anyway, although maybe slightly toned down. if you want the easiest image manipulation, for me it has to be fireworks. but if you dont want to pay/be too illegal, gimp is fine.

well i have never used gimp, i use a cracked photoshop cs3 (tried fireworks but tbh... i hate it). For a border its usually called a stroke on the image layer, and resizing it... well that should be easy.

Try looking for some online tutorials and play around. Its the only way to learn, download some brushes, some renders and stock and maybe some new fonts too Grin

okay resizing now... what kind of font would you suggest for the lettering... i was looking for a screamo type.. like with long stretched sharp letters and this is pretty much the closest i could come up with

I would suggest ordering each line of text more appropriately ...
And perhaps italicise it ....
Im thinking a lighter colour font also ....

well the text would look better if it was the same colour scheme as the sig... so maybe a light purple would look good. Also, its hard to read, and if you look at really professional sigs, you realise that the text is fairly small, and the image is the main focus.

ill give you my sig as an example (only because i know i did it in it).

the word "necr0six" is still there, you can see it, but it is soft and merged in to the background. if i hadnt have done that, it would stand out too much and as said, detract from the main focus. in gimp this is easy. just set the layer mode of the text to soft light and duplicate untill you get the right transparency.
