Sig Request

Postby sabo1530 » Thu Dec 08, 2005 2:50 pm

I loved the sig I got last year, but I was hoping for a change going into 2006. My keepers have been chosen and would like something with them.

The 4 guys I like most from my team are:

Halladay
Sheets
Crawford
Bay

Team name is Berea Mountaineers.

Maybe the 4 guys with mountains in the background...I don't know how hard this is.

Let me know if you need pictures, just tell me the size.

Thanks!

eric

If you want me to change anything, or just flat out don't like the whole thing, tell me.

When I tried to squeeze all those images on there, it jacked up the quality badly. :~(
So if you don't want it to look so bad I can take one or two of the guys out and it will be a little crisper. It's all up to you. ;-D

Bojangles that is a very cool sig, I really like it a lot, but the quality sucks. I think you should post the original and I'll try lowering the quality, I can't understand what you're doing with lowering the images... Could you possibly tell me step by step what you're doing and what program you're using and I'll help you out..

Is it just me, or does the original look like crap also?
I never used to have this problem, but when I convert it to a jpg. that is when the quality gets messed up. I don't get it.

It looks fine in Paint Shop, but when I save it as a jpeg...goes to crap.

Okay, I'm using PSP, and basically all I do is go to file- JPEG optimizer, and get it under 12 KB...that's it.
WTF is going on Loose?

hmm... I don't know anything about PSP, maybe someone else could help you out, but I think it might just be that your cut outs aren't that clean and you have a lot of rough edges...

In photoshop, or whatever you use, what method do you use to cut out your images?

I use the freehand selection tool (or polygonal lasso as its called in photoshop.)

I've heard some people us the pen tool, but I don't know how that works...

well bojangles, I also have PSP 7 (and I downloaded GIMP), and I can tell you I flat out suck at making complicated sigs like that.

But the freehand lasso is the only method I know to get images out in PSP.

Wow. The quality on that is REALLY bad.

If someone else wants to make you one, feel free, because that is just horrible.

I'll try and make it better, but it doesn't look like it is going to happen.
