First, you need Adobe Photoshop (or PaintShop Pro...but I like Photoshop better) and as many plugins as you can find. I highly recommend AlienSkin Eye Candy and Kai's Power Tools.

Once I've chosen what action pics I want to use, I draw it out on paper so that I can have a 'gameplan' (it also helps me to pick which photos to use - since the overall look is effected by what way the guy is running, etc) for what to lay out where.

After that, it's pretty easy...I start with a background...sometimes the theme is deliberate (SwingTheSpiral, FavreFan1998, yours) and other times it's just what comes out when I play with the plugins. After that I crop my action photos, resize them to fit in the sig area, and plop them in. Lastly, I put in the name and that's about it.

Sometimes (i.e. OneManShow26) I add things like lens flares and shadows other lighting effects, but they aren't always appropriate.

Basically all it takes is a steady hand, some patience, and a BUNCH of time.

Well first you need a design program paint shop pro and photoshop are the only ones I can think of. Then you pick a backround find the players and walleh you have your sig. Then you have to put it on the internet I use http://mywebpage.netscape.com and I think you know how to do the rest!! ;-D Ummz if you have more questions just PM me!!

I can send you PSDs of some of the sigs I have made (it's not like I'm copyrighting them!) so you can see how all of the pieces come together, if you'd like.

Also - PM myself, Cupertino, Zimm, Flockers, or basically anyone around here if you have specific questions along the road. I'm not sure if anyone else makes sigs quite like I do, so there might be an easier way. If that's the case - those guys can help you.

Franchise Fan may be able to tell you if there's an easier way to crop your 'subject' out of the images...because he's able to complete his sig requests in a matter of minutes! I usually just do it the old fashioned way, but it takes me forever.
