Default Ever wondered how I make my siggies? Well, now you know! Easy-instruction tutorial. MANY TUTORIALS COMING SOON! *With pics. (NEW TUTORIAL 11/24 - POST 23.)

INDEX:
Basic tutorial: Post 1.
Multicolored Siggies: Post 23.


Lately, many have asked me how I make my siggies. Well, first of all, I use GIMP 2, which you can download at gimp.org. It is easy, free, and virus-free!

1. Open up GIMP.
2. Go to File > New, and this is what will pop up
Click the image to open in full size.
3. Choose the sizes. The size limit for WI is 450 x 150. I usually use 400 x 150 for my siggies, because I'll eventually crop it!
Click the image to open in full size.
4. Now, go to "Advanced Options". Go to where it says "Fill with" Put "Transparent".
Click OK.
Click the image to open in full size.
5. This is what it should look like now.
Click the image to open in full size.
6. Now, click the big, bold A in the toolbox, and this is what your toolbox should look like once you do.
Click the image to open in full size.
7. Now, choose your font (I will use my favorite font, Complete in Him) (Most fonts that you find on dafont.com will need to be downloaded onto GIMP, you can find some helpful tutorials on downloading fonts on Google! ) Choose your size, color, whatever floats your boat!
Click the image to open in full size.
8. Now, click the canvas. This is what should pop up.
Click the image to open in full size.
9. Write the text that you want in your siggie in that box, and it should start to appear on the canvas. You can adjust the size if you'd like! Once you're done with and you're happy with your text, click CLOSE on the box.
Click the image to open in full size.
10. There you have it! Now go to File > Save As.
Click the image to open in full size.
11. Another box will pop out. This is where you'll name and save your new siggie. You should save it as a .PNG for best quality. I will name my siggie Kathy.PNG. Click Save.
Click the image to open in full size.

TADAAA! There you have it. Look at you, you now have a nice, new signature!
Cropping, you say? You can easily crop a photo on a free, easy website, lunapic.com.
Upload your photo to a free image hosting website, I use Imageshack and Tinypic.

My finished product:
Click the image to open in full size.

This is just the beginning:






MANY NEW TUTORIALS COMING SOON:
CROPPING
ADDING SYMBOLS
FADED TEXT
AND MUCH MUCH MORE!

Have any question? Feel free to PM or VM me.



Have fun, and experiment!
If you'd like, post your final product on this thread!
