It's never the same for every signature so, you're asking quite a varied question...

The easiest way of making a Signature is by using the programs "Photo Impression" or "Photoshop 2.0"

Thats what i used to make my current sig.

It depends on the image you're using for your signature pretty much, some people would just use the background of the original image whilst others may use an extracted image with a separate background. Most of my signatures I keep the original image as it is, background and all and edit it to what I want. Hope that answers your question somewhat...

Pheonix is correct. Some photo's are the best used by themselves. Most people just tend to make their Sigs "Flashy" Rofl. So the answer really depends on what you want.

Well I would never use an image off the web for a background, unless the main focal is involved in some way in a stock image. Allow me to give a few examples of signature backgrounds for you.

Brushed Background
Started as a blank canvas, but through various brushes and possibly in various colors, a background has been made for a render to fit in to.

C4D Based Background
This is what's in my current sig. The use of C4D is the main focus, even though I let some of the original background texture show through.

Stock Manip Background
This is where someone chooses a picture, say a band for instance, chooses who they want as the main part of the sig, then manipulate the surrounding to make a suitable signature.

There are more of course, but I'm just listing the most common kinds.
