i like it a lot. :-)

joshyboy72 told me a way to get your sig under 10k without losing that much quality. i dunno how you're saving it, but i think the best way is to go save>save for the web, then use the quality bar to get under it 10k. that might do the trick. ;-D


I've found that it does hurt the quality a decent amount depending on the sig. But, as far as I know, its the only way to do it.

hmmmm. the first one is with 60k...

let me ask you this. how big were the pictures? i mean, i know griffey and buhner's picture isn't that big. how good was griffey's picture? i think it's better if you use a bigger picture, then shrink it down to the sig size. you might not lose so much quality.

another thing that might help... use the burn (to get the picture darker) or the dodge (to get the picture lighter) tools. those are the tools below the gradient tool. for example. in griffey's it looks like he lost some colour when you got the sig under 10k. you can try to use the burn tool to make him darker.

Great sigs guys, keep 'em coming.

Weird, I always wondered how people made that shadow effect. I always knew it was possible to just take the same picture, increase its size and just lower its opacity. But I thought having shadows for multiple players like that would absolutely kill a sig's quality if done that way. Apparently not. :-D
