Yes, the second one is much better. The only thing you need to work on is the drop shadow. I think everyone has a problem with drop shadows when they get started. Everything else looks great!

Here is lesson 3


I don't know how to change the drop shadows...are they too big?? On lesson 3 instead of soft edge I used the low. It made it not so big. How do you make the soft edge smaller around the picture?

Okay I think what happened was when you added a stroke you added it to both layers because there is a stroke around the doll too. Whenever you work on a siggy you have to make sure each item is on its own layer. So what I do is each time I want to add something to my siggy I add a new layer. This is the most difficult part of making siggies. It looks like you did everything else correctly. Here is a link on how to adjust the drop shadow in PSE. http://www.justmommies.com/boards/in...owtopic=446569



I am going to see if I can flag Maddie to see if she can help too.

I did add the drop shadow to both layers. I made them smaller now. Is there a way to delete the whole drop shadow if you change your mind without redoing it??

OH good job!! That last one looks loads better! You can adjust the drop shadow on the text too if you want.

If you want to get rid of a drop shadow, you can double click on the "starburst" on the layer:



And then uncheck the box next to 'drop shadow' :


To get rid of the stroke around the doll, just uncheck the box next to 'stroke' in the style settings window (shown above)


Hope that helps
