    Quite a few round the site have been made my Anakin and Padme
    they are both willing sig makers - just ask them and give them some art to put into the sig.

    If you want a bit more than stock pics taken and shoved into a rectangle with a coloured backround then experiment with Photoshop yourself. There's tutorials online. Plus...doing it to one's liking allows you to have it just how you want it.

    You can download it, I think - if you have a crack. Of course, I advise against that method.

    If only EMT were still around... he was the best sig maker there was on this forum.

    For once I actually agree with Meteorain :)

    It is more satisfying to make your own, see how your efforts gradually improve and get an end result to your taste rather than anyone elses. You don't need Photoshop either ~ any program which can let you manipulate layers and their properties will do.

    There is a difference between stock image manipulation and 'arty' effects. Personally I'm firmly in the former 'manipulator' camp, often down to fine detail that only I notice :rolleyes:, having no arty bones in my body but then I'm not really a fan of excessive 'arty' effects either. Given that most forum posters change their banners frequently and want certain stock images included it's more likely that they will get a manipulated image with perhaps the odd effect, than a masterpiece.

    I know, on a number of forums, quite a number of breathtakingly fantastic banner makers. They increasingly do not make banners for others as (a) it's time consuming (b) requests from some people are too frequent or from new members who then bugger off and (c) a surprising percentage of recipients are just pig-ignorant :D

    Once you have it, it doesn't cost you a cent. The bad part is actually getting it. Here in Australia I'm pretty sure it's worth around $1,200. Easy to see why I downloaded and cracked it. :rolleyes:

    All 3 of those reasons are pretty much why I stopped. :p

    You can find the odd second hand version cheap on ebay every now and then. But it is probably easier to do it Renz's way!
