Yes same problem as me!
Personah, you need to make a new layer before you put in the picture of the jet, that way it won't become the background. And RDMC, I'm not sure exactly what your question is, if you're asking how to actually get the picture into photoshop, try File>Open, then drag the image into the sig window. If both of these windows are not shown at once, push the "restore down" button in the upper right hand corner thats right under the photoshop window control buttons. The ones that are colored grayish. Sorry if thats confusing.

And good beginner tutorial Z, I'm glad this was stickied.

He just opened a new Picture in Photoshop.

Just like when you press "File -> New".

You could just copy/paste the image onto a new layer in your sig if you want to do that.

Ah yeah.. I think thats one of the FEW changes from CS2 - 3..

alright.. the thing about the layer being locked.. you can just right click on the layer, and chose dublicate layer and just drag the new layer over there.. cause it wont be locked then..

Also I'm not quite sure I fully understand (I am danish, you know ) but the:

With you I see another screen in the sig screen..
Is that the two windows you are refering to?.. I'm probably worng, but then again I easily misunderstand stuff

It does basically the same thing, you should just be able to follow the rest of the tutorial like normal from there.

nope, ill drag the new picture onto the screen and all previous layers will dissappear. i just have this image, nothing behind it or anything. ill just get CS3. ive obviously fucked one of the settings up.

Hmm sounds very... ehm.. wierd. that it erases the other layers, a shame I can't have a look over your shoulder and see what you are doing (wrong?)

I'll soon be heading to bed, but I'll try to figure something out by tomorrow..

and btw thanks Home for helping out with some advice for people

Hmm. Weird. Try selecting the whole jet picture, with the Rectangluar Marquee tool, and then copy + paste it onto the new one. If that doesn't work, I don't know.

Not bad, but that seems like a lot of pictures for such a basic signature.

Good job none-the-less.
I would make a tutorial, maybe for my Crysis signature, but I'm too lazy to save and upload all those screenies.

well.. its for beginners, and like you say, there is a lot of uploading, sorting and writing going on.. due to this, I have to make a pretty basic sig.. it would simply be a too great challange to teach a beginner to make a unique sig with these small steps..

you and your crysis sigs whats up with that.. everyone has a crysis sig now a days.. this site it for Battlefield 2

Alright, I realize that a group of people have trouble importing images into the working file.
So I've uploaded a .psd file where the grey background, the box and the f18 is.. I've also imported the fireworks image if the problem should show it self there.. but I've made it invisible - see Step 8 for info on this..

good luck people

the file can be downloaded here...

EDIT: I've updated the guide with this since it seems that its a problem that is bugging more than one person..

Also - you don't have to use my .psd file (you can), but you can also use my .psd file to drag and drop the pictures

You have to have a selection before you can chose the menu "modify".. or else there is no selection to modify..

With an image like that you dont even have to use the pen tool... There's an easier way to render from background that differs from object

could help just differ actions when needed

hmm dont know whats wrong with your screen but when I prt scr and sample the background color its #3838383 and his sig looks good to me, no visibles lines due to color difference here..

but please let me know if thats the case, it could be my comp thats having a problem - but I have tested it on all 3 of my comps, and no color difference.. all #383838

BTW you should do the intermediate one.

thanks.. I might do that, but it'll be a while, because of my exams and the summer comming up. It takes a lot of time doing it.. but for intermediate/advanced some of the pr0's here have begun posting videos of themselves making sigs.. and like Ryan said, he might do a guide so I'm kind of thinking "why bother?"
