    Hey guys, this is my 2nd week using Photoshop and wanted to know what I can do to improve this.



    Do the animated boxes draw away from the rest of the sig to much? Thanks.

    Any ideas on how to blend better? I already kinda realized the animation and text were kinda bad. But i thought the blending was fine.

    Ugh. Use layer masks. Mistakes are more easily fixed through them, and its just as easy as the eraser.

    As for the original post:
    Don't blend to much. You want your stock to feel as though its part of the background, but not absorbed by it. You want to is attract attention and stand out. Try not to make everything one color. Similar, but not one. Again, you want to draw attention, not flagrant, but not bland.

    The animation is too simple to add any kind of effect (Not trying to be a jerk, most can't even do simple animation-It took me a week to find out how to make a name flash :/) Not to mention, the offscaled placement makes it look awkward (The column seems like its set off to the side moreso than the two columns to the right).

    i used lots of ways =D mostly layer mask but sometimes a good ol' feathering, feathering is more hard to control i think.

    I've never really like animations in sigs, never seen a sig that looks good that every needed an animation, not applying this to you but everybody that i've seen use animations in sigs are ignorant noobs who think that putting animation makes their sig teh sex.

    Yah i would make the sig dimensions a lil' smaller and try not to blend it so much
