lets say picture 1 is the base on which you want to paste picture 2.

if you have picture 2 open in photoshop, click CTRL-A to select all of it. Or use the marquee tool. Then copy, and go to picture 1. Click paste and it should come up as a new layer.

If its on a site or something, simply copy it and paste it into picture 1. It should come up as a new layer there too.

Then you can edit each picture individually to your liking, and merge all layers (under the layer tab) after your happy with it.

I hope that helps. ^^;;

The sig's quite okay, for your first creation, just that the picture is really blur, and a bit small. There isn't really a focus, and the background's making the picture blurry>.<

Good luck experimenting nya~

ehh~! This is better>.<

And it's real cute>.< Maybe it'll be better if there are fewer stars. And to the right of the sig it's a little blank. Improvement^^

Good for your first sigs. A little to plain for my tastes but after some practice you'll turn out some great stuff, I know it.

Heres a tutorial by Senthrax of delta-visions http://www.delta-visions.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=566&st=0
You'll learn a lot because I know I did. Teaches you about colors, lighting, where to place your picture and a lot of other things.

thanks for telling me this tutorial thingy^^ uhhhmm, does photoshop need to download brushes? Really noob about it...

06-22-2007, 10:51 AM
depends nya. Some brushes need to be downloaded, but remember to check your photoshop version before doing so.>.<

search for them online^^

THERE cute for your first ones... but so out of focus... I don't think the background is so post to over power the picture... Lol, But your doing great for the first ones...

If you want brushes go to deviantart.com. They have a lot and they do come in handy.

06-22-2007, 04:41 PM
ok thanks^^

I suggest getting some splatter and grunge brushes. Those are great for backgrounds and maybe some vector brushes to add a little more content to your sig

06-22-2007, 06:36 PM
Your sigs arent bad for starting out. The background arent to bad. The one with the stars not sure but imo the pink and yellow doesnt go with the gray and white. your text kinda blends in to the sig to much. May want to try using darker colors for lighter sigs. Also add borders they always make a sig look nice. Also your extractions seems to be covered up. However with practice you can only get better. :) which i am still learning myself and still need improvement but all that was just my opinion. Continue to work more on them and use some tuts to help. Keep it up. :)

ok^^ thanks for the opinion^^

06-23-2007, 08:16 PM
yeah I just got Photoshop today and I was wondering the samething and your Sigs came out better then mine. I use to make sigs on a not very common thingy.
