I just made my very first siggy. Can I have some feedback please? Please let me know if you think I placed something wrong, missed shadows, could've used some feature that I didn't. It was made with PSP x2.


Thanks so much!

It looks great, Amanda. Well done. :o)

Just a few things -

If you want to use it on iV, you'll need to have a maximum width of 475 pixels. Any wider than that and the boards will cut your siggy off at the right.

Personally, I always use a plain font for board names and secondary text like "mommy to". Doing that makes the names stand out more and the whole siggy tends to look cleaner somehow.

I would also add a white stroke and drop shadow to the names to make them pop out more. There are a couple of tutorials for how to do that in the PSP tutorial thread up in the top folder.

One last thing - I think you might have spelt Tristan's name wrongly? Or does it have 2 Rs at the beginning?

Crumbs - that looks like I'm ripping your siggy to shreds! I'm not, honest! It's a great first siggy. Mine was a hundred times worse than this, believe me! :o)

Not at all! That's exactly the kind of feedback that I was looking for! I'll take more if you or anyone else has it too!


Oh and I can't believe I spelled his name wrong!
