The way people make sigs is by using a program called "Photoshop". It is a very fun computer program.

Not really. I guess there are other ways to make them(aka Paint), but all the cool sigs you see on Finheaven are made with Photoshop.

There is a free program called GIMP that you could experiment with.

Also Paint Shop Pro X by corel is $100. They have a 30 day free trial that you can download as well to see if you like it.

It's a little more user friendly than The GIMP. But there are a good bit of features hidden in The GIMP, you just have to dig for them, considering it's free.

I use Paint Shop Pro X. It's not as easy to create a lot of the effects and such as Photoshop, but with a few extra steps here and there you can replicate them.

You can uplaod a custom avatar via the User CP link in the menu of the thread or forum header. But it must be less than or equal to 152x152 pixels and 19KB in disk space size. As for the sig... You must host it yourself. Imageshack or your ISP webspace is a good place to do so. Then when editing your sig you need to click on the image icon(looks like a couple of pyramids) and paste the location and name(URL) of the image you wish to be your sig in there.

Sigs should be less than or equal to 400x300 pixels and 40KB.

EDIT: I just remembered, you do have a limited amount of space here on Finheaven.com to upload images to the photo gallery for hosting your sig. I don't remember what the file size limit is for non-paying members though. Unfortunately the photo gallery section seems to be down while the administrators are updating the forum software.

If you do upload your sig here... after doing so you will need to click on the image you uploaded, after the refresh. Then click on it again and you should see your image in a popup. Once you get that you need to right-click on the image, select properties, double click on the image url, hit ctrl+c, then go to user cp, edit signature, click on the image icon and ctrl+v(paste) the url for the image.

Good lord... I think I confused myself with that babble. :blitphin:

Let me know if you still need assistance.

The Poor Man's Photoshop (And more!)

Pros: The GIMP is free, but don't let that fool you. For all practical purposes, this is photoshop. If photoshop has it, so does the GIMP. Don't pirate photoshop if you can't afford it, just get the GIMP. To those who already own photoshop, I would reccomend trying the GIMP out and possibly keeping it as a complement to photoshop. Almost all photoshop tutorials can be easily be done in GIMP, so flexibility is not a problem. The GIMP can also open photoshop documents, so don't worry about compatibility. GIMP uses scripts written in Scheme in lieu of plug-ins. This means that there are tons of plug-ins that can do anything imaginable, from creating logos to creating ripply GIF animations.
Cons: The GIMP's only problem is its relatively clunky interface (when compared to photoshop). Each panel is a separate window, so they can get lost if you are using other applications at the same time. Fortunately, you should only need one panel if you use tabs on one main panel, plus the tool palette. A little practice should find you using the GIMP just as efficiently as photoshop.
