I think one thing that makes a sig intriguing is close shots of players. Normally from the shoulders up.

Good job there on your first try! ;-D

Thanks Balance.....

How do you do this...

WHen I try to it doesn't fit on the page.

Like I will have a a good close shot of tiki barber for example. I lasso the top half of it and copy it. Then when I paste it not all of it is in the sig. How do I fix this?

You can do one of two things

1) leave it as it, shots like the ones in your current sig of the giants are about the right size and have the right amount of the player in there.

2) Click the picture. Click the corner of the bounding box. Go to the toolbar and click the lock icon. Click and drag the corner of the bounding box until it gets to the size you want.

Thanks a million man....

The thing that is annoying me is that when I copy paste it shows only a TINY peice of it at the bottom of the page....

How do I get the Image at the top?

I am a newbie at photo shop and I really appreciate your patience ;-D

If I understand what you are saying, I think you can just click and drag it to where you want it.

Thanks I got it now....

The one thing I am having trouble with is making the image blend into backround.

Like when I do there is a kinda of bborder around the Image and it looks like it isn't apart of the sig. It is hard to explain but I am struggling mightly here lol. I suck at photoshop but I will keep trying :*)

If you're saying an edge around the player you just cut. Try doing Layer>Matting>Defringe @ 1 pixel. This'll cut off the edges and clean them up for you.
