I made this really basic tut when I had PSP 9. The principles are the same for all PSP versions generally. Hope it helps
For a siggy: click on the little white box in the left hand corner(canvas) and choose your canvas size 400 by 300 (or whatever size you want) and that will give you the canvas for the siggy...you have to open up your pics, resize them by hitting image, resize and a percentage you want to shrink it ...I usually start with 50 percent see how it looks and if it is wrong do edit>undo , and keep doing it til I get it the size I want...once you get it how you want it, you hit the little hand button on the top left , right click, copy, click on the canvas, right click and hit paste>paste as a new layer ...do this for all the pics you want on it...all have to be in their own layers so you can move them around if you need to...to move them hit the cross looking mover tool on the left under the hand one and click back on the pic and move it around with the mouse (In PSP X the pick tool and mover tool are combined. the pick does rotation, the mover moves)
For text, hit the capital A (text tool) at the bottom left, hit the layers tab at the top and hit make a new raster layer, click on the canvas and a box will appear, type in your text, highlight the text and then you can change the size, font etc and you can change the inside and outline color of the text by playing with the 2 color blocks on the right side fo the screen...with your text highlighted still, click on the bottom box to get inside color and pick a color and the top box to do an outline...to make the outline of text smaller or wider, add or reduce from the stroke box that is at the top...when you have done what you want, save it as a jpeg and then upload it to a photobucket account for hosting (sign up for free at www.photobucket.com) ...Then use the code the code that starts with img to paste into your siggy box in the board.
The main thing to remember is that you have to add everything as a new layer, picks, text, graphics etc...you can play around with the different effects at the top...or use the picture tube tool on the left and stamp graphics onto siggys...alot of them are large though and you have to either resize them before stamping them or put them on a blank canvas first and resize them that way to use them for your siggys..but they are kind of fun...you can download lots of tubes from the internet if you just do a search for PSP tubes...
