Hey guys i was wondering how you would go about getting an image to show above the actual part of the signature.Basically to have the image start in the sig but have it show on the outside of it as well. Any help would be appreciated as i am lost on this one.

Like this: magnahh9.png If so, open up a raster layer and set it to transparent. Make it large enough for your sig and image that is larger or image that is popping out of sig. Do what ever it is you do when make your sig just make sure you save it as a .png file. Keep in mind size limitations on forums even though you dont see the whole sig you still have all that additional height.

kay, first let's try an experiment.

Open up an image. - 1 single layer should show Take the eraser and delete a part of it. A checkerboard should show where you deleted. If not, check the name of the layer - if it is called background, try renaming it to something else.

repeat the erasing. Now the checkerboard should show. Save as PNG or gif. Check out the image.
