How do you guys make the edges of your players so smooth? It's like you cut them out with scissors and then make the edges glow. I made this sig myself yesterday on Paint. I had no idea how to start and it took a long time to figure things out but it looks a lot better than I thought it would. Do I just need a better program to make them on or are there some secrets to it?

You're not going to be able to cut out players well on Paint...

Download yourself the recent Photoshop, which is CS2, off of Adobe.com (it's a 30 day trial)

See how you like it and how much you like making sigs and go from there.

Ok thanks man. It was really frustrating on paint with all the crap you had to do just to put the players on.

Ok thanks a bunch. Do I have to download those zip things too to unzip the download? I try to avoid downloading much off the net, especially big files because my comps speed really suffers.

Search on Google for "Shellzip" - it's a great FREE software that I found very useful as it can tackle all the compression formats and not just zips....
