How is that most of you guys can get the really cool designs for signatures, banners, wallpapers and the like? Im talking about the designs like the cool looking bars that will go across or behind a player. Or some realy cool background for a signature. I use Adobe Photoshop and have yet to figure out how to make some of these cool things. Is there another program out there that I need to know about? Any help would be nice.

if your talking about what i think you are, there are many different things.

Open up a 3x3 pixel canvas with a transparent background, use a black or white pencil and draw a dot in 3, 5, and 7.

Then go to Edit>Define Pattern, then to apply it to your sig, use the paint bucket, and change "Foreground" to "Pattern" and choose that pattern you made and apply it.

SAY THIS IS THE 3x3 CANVAS:
1...2...3
4...5...6
7...8...9


Some others:
1, 5, 9

6, 8, 9


NOW WITH A 1x2 canvas

put a dot in the bottom or top pixel.


NOW WITH A 2x1 canvas

put it in the right or left pixel.


If thats what your talking about, knock yourself out... if not, sorry for wasting your time.

Also, when you apply any of those patterns, adjust the opacity to somewhere below 20%
