    All yours. I added your name to the lower left.

    MNfury - try adding a white matte to the gifs for this forum. I know it's not as good as a png transparency, but the white doesn't really show too much against this forum's backgrounds, and everyone can see the desired effect then, no matter what browser they're using.

    Re: giving away a sig if anyshvone wants it.

    If you look at the sig MNFury posted, the edges look a little choppy. That's cause gifs won't allow for partial transparency. Either a certain pixel is completely transparent, or it's a solid color. You need that partial transparency to create a smooth looking line for angled or rounded lines. The .png format will handle partial transparency, but Internet Explorer doesn't know how to read .pngs correctly. Instead of seeing the transparency, IE creates a grey background. (Firefox can read pngs correctly)

    Now, when you create an image in photoshop, you have the partial transparency. If you then save it as a gif, photoshop will take any pixels that are partially transparent, and make them fully opaque, keeping the color the same. That creates the choppy edge you see. However, you can matte the gif with a specific color, in which case, photoshop puts that matte color behind all the partially transparent pixels in order to determine the final color of that pixel. That means, that if you use a white matte on a gif, that image will blend perfectly against a white background, as if you still had the partial transparency available. Since this forum's background colors are white and a light grey, a white matte works well enough against both colors that you don't see any choppy line. That's what I did in the sig that mnjamie just claimed to keep Mwelde's head and feet looking smooth. If you put that sig against a dark background, you'd see a white choppy halo around those parts of him.
