Photos for Sigs

Postby chargerss24 » Sun Jul 22, 2007 4:26 pm

I'm gonna try my hand a creating my own signature since I took a class on Photoshop for work. To those of you who create these awsome sigs, where do you go to find the pictures of the athletes?

Mainly Yahoo, Google, or CBS sportsline.

I love CBS sportsline. They're usually updated daily so most pics won't be up for long. Here's a little trick to get them larger:

Right click the desired pic and go to properties, copy the link location (if you use Firefox you can right click and go to "view image"). The original link will be something like http://images.sportsline.com/u/gettyima ... _lower.jpg
Image

Replace the "lower" with "1024x768" like so http://images.sportsline.com/u/gettyima ... 24x768.jpg and you will get a larger version of that pic.

It won't work with every pic, but most of them. Usually the ones that begin with the date & location on the caption (something like Jul 22, 2007; San Diego, CA, USA) won't work.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.
