I use pixlr for everything. You can easily make transparent sigs

Transparent signatures are more difficult to make because it requires that you not only remove the background (or that part of the background you don't want) but also that the file be saved as a .png in order to preserve transparency. I personally don't see too much appeal in the use of transparent backgrounds, but that is because I like being able to make use of the entire canvas.

Are you talking about a signature that looks like it's rising out of the water? Cause that is a completely different effect than transparency. For a water-type layer you need to create a ripple effect above the image and around the part that is rising.

the image will still need a back ground that make it look transparent

So would are you talking about looking into a clear pond and seeing the bottom with some ripples on the surface? I'm trying to understand why you need a transparent background for a watery looking object.

My transparent siggy really just meant filling the background with the forums background colour.

This way, it gaves an illusion of a transparent siggy. I should specify it more

So yes to Tyrion and no to THE ice

well The trick is to gave the viewers a illusion of transparency.

You can do this with

save file tyle as

or

fill the back ground with the same texture
