Basic Signature Making


Step 1- First your will need a photo editing program like Adobe PhotoShop or Jasc Paint Shop Pro, a free trial of PhotoShop can be found here and one for Paint Shop Pro can be found here. This tutorial is for PhotoShop so it's probably best to download the trial for it instead of PSP.

Step 2- Open up the image/s in PS (PhotoShop) by going to File > Open. I'm using these 2 images.



Step 3- Open up a blank canvas by going to File > New, a good size to make a canvas in 430x90, but I'm using a different size for this signature.



Step 5- Drag the images you are going to use in the new canvas by clicking the and dragging them in or Ctrl + A and then Ctrl + V in the new canvas with also paste them there also. To resize the image press Crtl + T, if your don't want the image to look squished hold down Shift when moving the corner resize points. In my image i have gotten rid on the join line by this method, but it can be done using the Eraser tool set to a feathered brush.





Step 6- When your happy with the result you can add some text, this can be done by selecting the text tool the font and size you want it. Drag the text box where you want the text then type the text you want.



Step 8- You can add effects to the text by clicking the little F image. On mine I have added a 1px black stoke.



Step 8- You can add some effects to the signature now and a border. Tutorials on effects can be found here and how to do borders here. My finished product is this.



Step 8- Now you can save your image by File > Save as and then in the drop down bow change it to .jpeg, or to save it as .gif by going to File > Save for Web > Ok. Now you have saved the image you need to upload it to somewhere like Photo Bucket, and then get the link and place it in your signature (If you using it for a forum) using these tags [img]IMAGE LINK HERE[/img]
