I know there's probably already one of these lying around the GD, but by now it's probably at the 5th to last page. But oh well. Anyways...
So, wanting to know how to animate the rain in yer sig? Or just wanting rain, animated or not? Well, wether your a newb (not n00b), a soon-to-be pro, or a vet at Photoshopping, hopefully this'll help ye. Now, I'm using Adobe Photoshop CS2, so the format may be different, or some toos might be missing. Also note that this'll be a big file, so make sure you know the max sig size at different forums. Well, let's get started, shall we? 1) Open up the sig in which you want the clouds to be taking a break. Next, make a new layer (Ctrl+Shift+N), and name it 'Rain 1'. You should now have something like this. 2) Now, either fill the layer with black paint via the Paint Bucket, or use the paint brush to paint the entire layer black. Then go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise, and use these settings: Amount: 65% Distribution: Gaussian Monochromatic Then go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur, and use these settings: Angle: 75 Degrees Distance: 35 Pixels Now, set the layer's blend mode to 'Soft Light'. If you want to, you can press Ctrl+U to set the layers color and saturation, but it's not necessary. You should now have something like this. 3) Repeat steps 1 and 2, and make 3 more layers. On each new layer, though, change the amount of noise by 1%, so that the first layer will have 65% of noise, while the last will have 68%. If you coloring each layer, then (of course) make each layer the same color.
46 and 2, are just ahead of me

Why did your font change?
The only thing is that you want to mention the splashes. Use a 1 pixel or 2 pixel brush thing to make soem splotches.
Font? Where? The tut or sig? or w/e... But splashes.... Hmm, good idea, except I amke horrible splashes.
