Hope you find those helpful.

You could also try downloading this program for graphics.

http://www.gimp.org/

It's free and has some cool tools that might not be available with PSP.

Good luck

Where do you get most of your backgrounds?? Or do you make them yourself?

I make them myself. It takes a little practice but is easy once you get the hang of it and you are only limited by your imagination. You can use photoshop brushes to make scratched backgrounds, you could use regular stock photograghy and blend it into the sig to create different effects. You could take a pic of a player's jersey and erase parts and change the layer properties (Overlay, color dodge, screen, etc) to give it a faded look. There are many different ways to do a background.

I might be adding a resource tool to my store to help the newer photoshoppers with tricks and tips. That might be the direction that I take my store instead of just making sigs, I prefer to see what others can come up with and if I can help them out, all the better.

that would be SOOOO helpful. I'm pretty good with icon-sized images. I can make my own icons....it's just the banner-sized stuff that's got me frazzled. lol
