Okay, so I got into sig making... And I suck... lol, but I've made a few, and the problem is that when I try open any of them to edit the text or something, the layers are locked and there is only one layer left, called Background... How do I unlock all the layers again?

Thanks :D

Ps. I save them in JPEG... has that got anything to do with it?

You can only ulock layers that are from a .PSD file. If you open a JPEG you get to see only one layer because photoshop compresses all the visible layers into one layer when saving. But you can unlock layers by pressing the small lock button just above the layers.

Great job for your first go! Runescape chars are hard to incorporate into sigs because they are so blocky ^_^ bravo for that. On the critic side.. Most people use a boarder that is a little thiner then that.(top one) Keeping it 1-3 pixels wide give it a much more professional look. And! while your text is cool, it doesn't really match the feel of the top sig. Text should be like trying on shoes, keep trying untill you find the one that really fits =D

Ahh, thanks for the advice dude :D much appreciated

EDIT: btw, the char wasn't that hard to fit it... It's not an ingame screenie.... found it on google, searching for runescape warrior :D
