Rondo

Made the Rondo sig I'm rocking...looks like it could use a border but then I would have to compress the picture some...

PSD make life much much much much easier....cutting the player is always the hardest part for me.

Is this your first sig, ken? Looks pretty good. Rondo is not sig worthy though.

you can make a border pretty easily without changing anything.

create a new layer select all, go to edit --> stroke --> 1 pixel width, and location inside

just puts a 1 pixel border over the edge of the sig

cutting the player is definitely tough and tedious, but zooming in and using a 1 pixel feather allows for you to work a bit quicker without it being too noticeable in the sig
