That looks really good. The only thing that you may want to work on is adjusting the drop shadow. I think PSP's default drop shadow is set really high. I like to use a really small drop shadow of 5 pixels or less. I think you are off to a great start!!! I hope you will participate in the other lessons.[/b]
Thanks for the feedback! How do I change that now? I am really clueless with PSP. I just got it and I don't know how to do anything!

Screen shot for you.

When you click to add the drop shadow you come to this screen. You can adjust the numbers where I circled it. I set mine anywhere from 3 and 3 to 5 and 5 if I want a slight drop shadow. I rarely use drop shadows larger than that myself.



Not sure if you can edit drop shadows once you add them in PSP though so you probably just want to keep this in reference for future siggies.

Okay how I install fonts. What I do is save the font to my computer. You have to unzip it. If you have WindowsXP just click the extract files when you open it. After it is unzipped and you have the .ttf file. I just drag the .ttf file into my fonts folder (If you go to your main drive which is usually your C drive, then go under your windows folder, you will see the fonts folder) I just drag it in there to install it. Tell me if that helps.

Here is my first siggie! I must be working with a much older version of PSP then everyone because my menus look ancient in comparison to yours!



And this is the one I created using the same techniquies. I like it!

Nice! Did you have trouble installing the font or did you just not want to do it?

Ok, that'll be in a different lesson I believe. Transparent files just don't work the same in PSP. It looks good though. You have to use the magic wand tool. Select the area in grey. Then go to the top and hit select > Inverse. Then copy and then hit Paste As New Selection into your siggy file. You did a great job on it other than that! The text looks super. The dropshadow could probably be lowered, but that takes practice and learning to play with the settings here. Nice job!
