Okay, so here is my siggy that I made very quickly for this guide. The size for mine is 450x140.
1) Make your background.
To do this, you pick two different colors that you want to blend, and select the blend tool. Then, make any sort of line on your new picture and let go. You should come up with something like the picture above.
2) Insert your cool background. To do this, copy your picture and paste it as a new layer. (Edit>Paste As>New Layer)
I used this picture:
3) Insert a picture of your wizard. Scale if needed
If you just want to use my wizard for testing this, here it is:
4) Make the pic the same colors as the blend (or not, if you want to hurry).
To do this, go to Colors>Hue/Saturation>Set saturation to -100. Then, where it says mode in the window to the very right, change it to overlay or hardlight.
5) Extend the canvas past your wizard's head. Max height is 200.
Ta-da! You have made your pop-out. If you have any suggestions on how to improve this thread, please post in the comments. I will credit you.
