First of all, the basics (with respect to this forum)...

Now there is not an exact size that you must have, however there are restrictions and rules. These include a sig height and width restriction of 480x100 pixels and a file size restriction of 50Kb (for those members, like myself, who have slow a slow connection such as 56K). The sig must not include any sexual or racist comments, 'attacks' or inappropriate comments against fellow members and GR.net staff. So basically just abide by the forum rules.

Now, below are a list of web sites that my aid you in creation of your sig concerning the topics that you posted above.

I was kinda thinking maybe 'Black Cell' written in top right hand corner with a faint neon green light eminateing from behind the lettering and comming towards and down left further in to the middle of the banner, With a Special Ops kinda guy aiming a Mp5 pref with red dot sight, On the right with the Red beam across the banner, Just a matter of getting used to Paint shop pro :blink:

Good old Paint for windows ;) I dont know much bout Gfx proggys or things, But would like to get into it. :yes:

I no longer have paint on my comp!!

here's the story...

One day i turned on my computer as normal so that i could resume some work that i had started earlier the same day. When the computer had reached the desktop and fully loaded up all the background bits and bobs I clicked on Start Menu > Adobe Photshop 7.0. I then proceeded to continue with my work. Nearing completion I required one more thing - an image off the internet - so I logged onto the internet through AOL (Evil thing is AOL! :angry: ) and eventually located my required image.

I then proceeded to save the image to my hard drive and then logged off the internet. I then found my recently saved image on my computer, after a lot of searching since i forgot where i saved the damn thing :wall: , and double clicked on it. Now this was saved as a bitmap image so it should automatically load up in Paint. However, I instead got an 'Open With' box. So, wondering what the hell had happened, i scrolled down the list to find Paint - it wasn't there! :blink: I then spent the next god knows how long trying to find the damn ponsy little program to no avail.

So, I have no idea what happened to it, but it aint on my computer any more :wacko: :'(

And it comes in handy every now and then for the little things that you want to do :(

Thats an excellent sig there CMC, great work, love the guy holding the MP5, looks brilliant, again nice work :D

One thing though i've noticed. If you look at the positioning of the weapon, the guys holding it so its slightly facing out of the sig, not parallel, or level, with the sig. So it does look kinda weird as though the laser is not aligned right with the weapon.

What you could do is alter the laser dot line so that it goes from 1 pixel thick to 2 pixels thick as it reaches the right edge of the sig. This will give it more depth and make it look more realistic, as though he's pointing it out of the sig if you get what i mean.

Just an idea mind, but it does look ace as is if you dont want to change it :D
