    I know this is only my 3rd or 4th day on the forums, but I have learned soooo much already. However, as I see and learn more things I keep coming up with more questions...

    Here's the latest...

    I have seen a couple of people actually put their signature on a picture. (Like in the bottom corner) I hink that's awesome, but I don't kow how they do it? Is it with a scanner?? I have no clue.

    This may be the easiest qeustion, but I'll admit I'm a newbie here.

    It's done with a picture editing program like Photoshop. You can either scan your signature in or use a script style typeface.

    Ok here, you just use this but instead take a piece of paper, use a sharpie and scan it in.. "Just do a select color range, put the dropper on the white, select inverse, and you have your sig selected to use as the brush." -Hobbes

    Now follow the steps in the tutorial.
