Alright, I've been thinking about making a tutorial for some time now. I tried to explain this as thoroughly as possible, and if anyone has any suggestions for improvement, or wants to point out that I was an idiot and forgot a part, please PM me and I'll update it.

Remember, this is a tutorial - try not doing it exactly as I show it, but vary and carry on the techniques when you make new sigs.

And one last thing - save this as a PNG file, so you don't lose your transparency.
This is my first tutorial out of many to come - when I have the free time

edit:
I'd love to see some results

I'm bumping it for you because it looks as though you've taken time doing this.

probably the best of all the tuts users have posted so far imo. good techniques and a professional look. simple but a lot of useful tips, especialy for beginners.

This is probably a really n00b question, but:

How do you set Fore/Background colours on a gradient like that without lighting effects

Can you rephrase that question?
I hope you mean this:

Go to the gradient tool and see the picture for explanation of the tabs. Double click on the opacity one (on the top) to adjust the opacity it runs to, or the color one to decide the color.

if youre making reference to how the drop shadow looks i cant do anything about it. its fine as a still .png, but shadows and glows start to look funky when they are part of and animated gif. thats why i cant leave and transparency either, its just fills in white specks

You need to duplicate the folder, otherwise there will be no reflection, only a flipped text. Either right click and duplicate the folder, or hold down alt and drag it.

What are you using to make that? I'm trying to make a new signature but when I hit CTRL+N (Using Vista home premium) I don't get anything.

Photoshop CS2 or 3 I imagine.

Try Ctrl + Shift + N

I want to make a signature with a Dragonov or an M16 in it or something. Then with a grain effect around it with some other ranom stuff

Wow I failed. Ctrl + N makes a new document, Ctrl + Shift + N makes a new layer.

Brad are you using photoshop?

I'm using paint. That's the only thing I have. I guess I need to DL something free like GIMP right? Paint takes forever and it's not even pretty, it's the basic of basics.

Even if you did that, the GUI and shortcut keys would be different. The tutorial's made for Photoshop.

Oh alright! Anyway, I don't have photoshop, what's the next best easy thing? We don't learn photoshop in our PC school till the end of the year.

Paint.net is a nice place to start if you're looking for something free.
