I found a tutorial for those of you that were looking on how to do it.....it looks like it's done in elements but the concept can be applied to all programs

I just did this and if I can do it, anyone can! Once I caught on to the concept, it was pretty easy. The only little problem for me was that when my siggie was shadowed, you could see just a teeny-tiny space in only the shadow where the parts lined up. So, I un-shadowed it, and viola'!
One tip: to make it even easier to cut it up perfectly, use guides and then Clip to Guides when you crop.

Wooww, this is looking really good, Barbara! Let's see if I can do it, too - I'm really instruction challenged! :)

OK, ladies, I've done two little videos showing how I made my signature. If you'd like the link to them, please send me an email or PM. :-)

Your sig is just absolutely beautiful, Andrea-- I stop and look every time it is in a post!

Thank you so much, Amanda! I've always wanted to know how to link to gallery, blog, etc., so I'm going to give this a go - we'll see what I come up with!:)

That is gorgeous Andrea! I love making siggies, but seem to be challenged with the sizing! Yours is perfect!

Barbara....PM coming your way....I want to try another one!

OK, so it seems that I've been sending out PMs with links to two Step 2s! So, here is Step 1 (http://screencast.com/t/JRYdWXh8). :-/

It's lovely, Cathy! I think, though, that the siggies for GDS need to be a max 500 pixels in width... :-(
