      new signature... again!

      I know I just made myself a new signature but I wasn't pleased with how krita (the software I use for painting now) treated my image quality, so i've decided to learn gimp! I used to use photoshop because I had an old version on my old laptop, but the new pay-monthly thing is just too expensive.

      Anyway, behold my first gimp signature!
      I feel like I'm not up to the quality of my old graphics, but hopefully as I figure out the program i'll get there

      I honestly don't think I'll be able to stay with this picture and signature forever. Anyways, that is a really cool signature

      I don't like it when people call things impossible, because it usually isn't.

      Re: new signature... again!

      Ah, I get what you mean. I have an old version of photoshop that my mom gave me when she was a teacher. Paying for the new photoshop sub is honestly just annoying; and of course, buying it out-right is just as expensive (if that's even possible still - been awhile since I've looked into the programs they offer).

      There are many forms of art however, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think your new sig looks great, and no matter what program you use you still have a great artistic eye. Sometimes the challenges we see in life can be made into opportunities, depending on how you look at it

      errrr... as many as will fit, I guess! I think it starts to look overcrowded if there are more than 3 or 4 but I think I could make it work with more... there just wouldn't be much room for a background haha

      There's a limit to the size of the sig I'm guessing. Hmmm maybe I'll submit one with my main as the avatar and my other 4 boyz as the signature but Idk what words I should put it in... I'm not very good at those things lol

      Cool Re: new signature... again!

      I'm glad you tried GIMP. The new signature looks great.

      My best friend is a Master Tailor with almost 50 years experience. In the past, we used Photoshop, Corel and others, but the idea of having to "rent" the programs was, IMO, absurd. The worst part is if you stop the monthly fee, you loose access to your work.

      Thinking back to the early days of Central, I remembered several people mention GIMP, and when I checked it out, I was surprised at how much the program had grown and improved, and best yet, it was still free.

      It takes a little time to get used to, but I found it pretty much does everything I need...and more.

      I hope you have lots of fun with it.

      Thanks! It really seems like gimp has most of the same features as older versions of photoshop, things are just labelled differently and the UI is different enough that it feels very alien.

      The concept of renting a creative software without even offering the option to buy it permanently is unbelievably absurd to me as well. Imagine if all traditional artists had someone knocking on their door every month to repossess their pens! Even kingsisle lets us purchase areas permanently if we don't want to perpetually sell our souls

      Anyway... gimp so far definitely seems better for image manipulation, but if you are ever painting or drawing, I can definitely recommend Krita, which is also free! I've been using it for painting for over a year now and I love it- the default brushes are very snazzy and the capacity for organizing layers/masks/filters is superior to gimp (as far as I can tell with what i've messed with).

      The official limit is 500x200px, but I personally find 400x200 more attractive graphically, so I usually make mine that size. If you wanted me to give your wizzies more room to breathe, i'd be happy to use 500x200 instead

      as for words, wiz names and titles are a classic vibe, but also you can definitely stay simple and just have your central user... or nothing at all, and just let the wizzies speak for themselves!

      I made a signature a few days ago, but I don't think it's as good as I was hoping. I'd like to find a better background in my house to use first

      I don't like it when people call things impossible, because it usually isn't.

      The backgrounds in my sigs are usually edited from stock photos + painted in! I essentially cut out my wizard and place them in a new environment. But using photomancy to get a good angle in front of a cool area is also a great way to get an image you like.

      I'm also taking requests for graphics right now if you don't want to make one yourself! you can check out my shop from the link in my signature if you like. There are forms you can fill in to ask for exactly what you'd like
