The first thing we will cover is photo editing. Photo editing is, in the opinion of many Expert makers, the most important part of siggy making. You can create a wonderful layout for your siggy, but, if the photo looks bad or drab it'll affect the whole look of the siggy. So, you can see why this is the first thing we'd like you to learn.

Now, the number one thing I have to tell you about photo editing isn't in the actual editing, but in the resizing the photo for the siggy:
Please, please, please make sure if you make the photo smaller or bigger that you make sure it is even so that it does not end up looking smooshed. Simple way is hold down the shift button as you drag the corners to make bigger or smaller.

Here are a few links to help you learn photo editing basics:

Any other links, be they on JM or an outside source, you might know of feel free to use or share.

In this challenge, you need to make a siggy using at least two photos, so you can try to edit them to match each other in brightness and color and clarity and so on. No black and white photos please.

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
