    Cool Staticon and Skustings Sig asylum

    Welcome, one and all. Pic by Cap'n Skusting
    If you are in need of a sig pic - This is the place to come.
    A few points to note:
    • Please try to let me know, as clearly as possible, what is required. This saves time doing many versions to arrive at a suitable sig.
    • If possible, post specific images, or a link to them, with the request. It saves me a lot of time searching which, as a matter of policy, I am no longer prepared to do.
    • I can now offer a sig hosting service. I have plenty of space on my server at present and bandwidth has not been a problem yet so I shall keep an eye on it and see how it goes. If you have your own webspace, please feel free to host the image yourself.
    • If you prefer to host your sig elsewhere, there a few hosting sites that I know of. I have not used them myself but you may want to give them a go. They are Hostmysig and Sig Host.

    • Please, do NOT PM requests for sigs to me. When it gets busy, my 'in' box fills up. All sig requests should be posted in this thread. Thanks.

    Enjoy.

    Default Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    One of the most frequently asked questions is 'How do I get my sig to display?'
    So here is how you do it.
    • Right click on the image of your sig and select 'Properties'
    • Hilight the address (ie. the line that read something like http://www.staticon.net/hosted_pix/your_sig.jpg) and copy it.
    • Click the User CP link at the top of the page.
    • In the Control Panel, to the left of the screen, click 'Edit Signature'
    • In the text box, type '[IMG]'
    • Paste the URL you copied earlier.
    • At the end of the line, type '[/IMG]'
    • Click the 'Save Signature' button at the bottom of the page.
    • Whenever you wish to add your sig to a post, just check the 'Show Signature:' box at the bottom of the 'Post Reply' screen.
    This, and other frequently asked questions, can be found by clicking THIS LINK . Hope it helps.

    Default Uncollected Sigs

    jason - I wasn't sure if you wanted your forum name in the sig as well so I did two for you to choose from. Hope they are what you required.

    I have had a tutorial on sig creation with Photoshop linked from this thread for some time.

    Many people have asked how to create a sig using other packages so, I thought it was about time that I investigated some of the alternatives and to create more tutorials.

    I have just completed a Paint Shop Pro tutorial and turned out a reasonably decent sig with it. It was an interesting experience as I was learning at the same time as creating - it was a little frustrating at times but ultimately rewarding to see the end result.

    If you wish to see the tutorials, Click Here.

    I think I may stick with Photoshop, mainly because I know what I am doing with it, but I may well have a go at this with other packages. I am thinking of doing The GIMP next but are there any other suggestions?
