well bg can go so many different ways. you can throw a pic of a stadium in there, some stock pics, or multiple pictures of jerseys, logos, other pics, etc... theres no ONE good background. its up to you and what looks good. for example the bg in my picture is really the picture of magglio
i brushed over it with a white brush on overlay to brighten up the sig and had an orange gradient on the bottom. added some lighting to magglio and voila. very simple, but looks clean and nice.
text is still very difficult and like i said before, the difference between a good sig and a contest award winning sig. watch some tutorials, DL some new fonts, and keep messing with all the different settings. you'll find a style you'll feel comfortable working with and run with it
hope i can help.
What is a stock pic? I would like to put other pics in the back ground along with the main pic, but it looks weird with all the pics the same. It seems like they are just floating above the background. I can do that if I knew how to blend them in or fade them.
I love your sig btw. Nothing too flashy, but very well put together. What do you mean by "you brushed over it with a white brush on overlay to brighten up the sig?" I thought the brush was just to add things in, I didnt know it could brighten things. Wow do I have a lot to learn.
As for the text, I did check out some text from dafonts. Actually the one from my Manny sig is from that site. I guess I will have to just keep adding more and more to change things up.
Sorry for all the questions, but you seem to know what you are doing/ talking about and I am willing to listen/ learn. Thanks for all the help so far, hope I can do you proud on a background. I will work on another background and get back to ya. Thanks again.
