Well, not to be harsh or anything...but that's a really lazy signature.

It's basically just you slapping your name and a border onto a ready image so it's nothing.

Just play around with your program and read some signature tutorials for the program you use.

Personally I think the background is a bit too plain....but that's always a problem with vector style.

Bring out the text a bit more, the color matches very nicely but it's hard to read. I'd suggest giving it a drop shadow or stroke.

Background's not too bad but it's rather plain, try adding a bit more texture to it maybe?

Yeah, Even a Slight Gradient would help, I guess. smile

Gradient? Drop shadow? You people and your fancy terms.... *grumbles*

I'm going to stop giving advice or something....because my "well, um, try to make it look prettier" doesn't really work as well as "vector-fy the gradient of the pie-ometer and you should be fine."

Actually, blur tool doesn't work very well for that, it overdoes it too much.

If you want to smooth the edges, use the eraser set to soft brush at about 50% opacity to erase parts.

Yeah. Don't take advice from me. I'm a PS newb.

You could also feather it I suppose.

Feathering will work as well, but you have more control with the eraser tool.

Oh....if it's a good render, it shouldn't be pixelated.

How do you resize the render to fit the sig? I usually paste it in at full-size, then hit Ctrl+T and resize it to fit; that way you can rotate it at the same time if you need/want to.

When you're resizing using Ctrl+T (which is free transform), be sure to hold down the shift button so it doesn't get warped.
