    Thanks!

    Yes, you're right the glitter looks faded in my version, sorry. That's because the scaling applies some smoothness to all the image and not just the edges... but it's not working in the favor of the glitter.

    I'll give it another shot.
    The thing is to merge the layers selectively: to use the one from Bill, which has the greatest glitter, and add the smoothing at the edges:

    Click image for larger version

    The background is now transparent, no problem. Just keep in mind that even the original, although transparent, has a white edge that will be visible on dark backgrounds, so I presume white background was used in the making process.

    Done deal! Thanks so much, H! It looks terrific! You made my day. I hope it wasn't too much bother.

    I even went ahead and changed the font color under my sig so that lQQks better.

    We livened this thread up a bit. Where did everyone go?

    You're welcome.

    Glad you like the little upgrade.

    It's a nice color combination either way.

    I'll make some new signatures possibly, I don't have Photoshop installed as of this point. I'll try and check back here every week/few weeks.

    Hello vixr...... Feel free to make anything you like for me.. I'll admit, I'm NOT so good at giving suggestions for my Sig.

    LOL, LPT! Yes, this thread does go to sleep now and then.

    I'm all for a new sig. Mine is quite old with 8 on it. I'm now running 8.1. If possible, I'd like it a little smaller, please.

    TheGrantFitz,
    Welcome back!

    Also no Photoshop here but GIMP saves the day in that case.

    Cheers!
