I don't wanna seem like i am dissing TS i just thought i would give it ago myself. Step1: Make a new transparent layer (I used 100x400) Filter - Render - Clouds. Step2: Now Filter - Liquify (Shft + Ctrl + X) Step3: You should get a window that looks like this. Change the brush size to one that u like. Click and hold the left mouse button and make random pattens. Step4: You should end up with something like this or totaly different. Hit Ctrl + U and tick the box that says colorize. Now make this layer any color u like. Step5: Now right click on the layer in the list (Right hand side) and click duplicate. Now with the new layer using the drop down box pick Overlay. Step6: Make a new layer and do all of the above again but with a different patten this time. Step7: Once u have repeated the above and colorized the layer (Mabye with a diff color) Go to Filter - Stylize - Find Edges (Or Ctrl + F). Now like b4 go to the layer drop down box and click Soft Lay this time. Step8: You should end up with something that looks like this or completely different. One advantage of this bkgrd is it never looks the same. Hope u all have fun trying this. Post bk with wat u got ;)

i made this... i added some stuff, but its basically the same method. thanks for the info! :D
i dont know how to do text well. so i didnt.
For the text in mine all i did was to soft lay it to give a kinda of see through look. Also make sure u mess around with the different types of layer ops u have. Layer - Layer Styles - Blending ops.

Pretty good Mac. Thursdays are slow days at work, I'll give it a whirl... EDIT = Forgot they use the old Photoshop 6.0 at work. Those of you with 6.0 should note, the liquify option is under the 'Image' menu, not the 'Filter' menu. At least it is on here. EDIT X 2 = Hey, this ain't bad at all. Looks pretty nice. And I think it's foolproof...
Don't look to bad at all dude, when u get some blending in there and stuff ur be on ur way to making g8 sigs.
btw thanks for that mr.matt. Under Image on photoshop 6

Heh. I wouldn't go that far. By 'this looks nice' I meant the method, not my attempt. I'm not quite that big headed :D. Hey, if you just add a couple of things to it, they can look pretty decent. I just added a lensflare and a glow to the text to the one above, and it looks kinda like a weird nebula with a sun in it. I think so anyway. Didn't even need lighting effects, because the way the 'liquidation' went one half was already darker. There's still something missing though :uhm:
Mr. MattThere's still something missing though :uhm:
i've gotten that a lot recently...
Woah that is one sweet tut Mac i making mine right now show it to ya when i done Edit: Woah that was much easier than I thought :) i finished it in 6 minutes
Yup its a cool easy one to do. I do some more on basics sometime. This time i will down my res so u dont get big ol pics.
Not a big fan of that style, not trying to bash it but that's just my taste...
