I'll ask a question, how you guys get some of the backgrounds in your signatures? I found a Photoshope rip off called photosuite 4 and I'm attempting to make sigs but can't get descent backgrounds to put in their.

Thought this may be a good idea to bump this because of all the help threads that keep poping up that are basically the same.

Lets try to keep this in one thread to keep this forum neater.

How do you cleanly cut a player out a a picture and put him in your sig without making it look rough?

Zoom in and use the eraser in short strokes, so you can undo your mistakes. Vary the size of the eraser to get corners and stuff.
Sometimes I use the magnetic lasso tool, dont know if they have that in the Gimp or not though.

Image shack is an upload site. A good one too, since you dont have to log in/register. Its pretty good. Photobucket is pretty decent as well.

Is there a sight to get some of these backgrounds? If not, how can I make them look very clean & professional.

How do u move one cut out pick to another pic/background?
-Copy & Paste?

If there was a site, why would anyone who makes them call themselves artists. And its not image ready. Its photoshop. And read some of the tutorials I posted on this forum.
