Hi (=

Well, I been on the Naruto Forums for quite some time now. Nearly everybody has cool gfx picture thing for their signature. How do you do it?! How do you make something like that? xD

I actually want to make something like that, but I just need basic guidelines on how to get started. Oh, and I have a mac, so most windows programs won't work for me D:

Any help guys? :D

they search google images for a HQ (lol) pic.

Then they put pretty colors on it with a fancy city slicker "paint tool".

Since no one really got into what GFXing really is, I'll try to help you with the best of my knowledge.Let's begin...

GFXing - Graphics
You can make graphics if you download Photoshop (costs) or GIMP (free).
Many people use tutorials on Deviantart/Graphics forums to learn how to master or...Enhance their graphic abilities.
GFXing can be many things, tags (in signatures), avatars (what we wear), even icons (MSN/Xat). Before doing anything, I suggest downloading Photoshop (cost money) or GIMP (free). From there on you can ask questions to the community for help or asking us to rate and comment on your work.

Getting a bit more technical, people use various websites to find these pictures (stocks/renders) to create their graphics with.There's much more to it, adding text to it or downloading fonts and brushes.Once you actually start GFXing you'll learn more things, such as; flow, render taste, quality, color, smudging, atmosphere, and much much more.
I'd rather be dead than cool.

GFxign is a graphic designer they use photos and add effects and use tools and different burshes with different techniques in order to get what they want,

if your making a signature (sig) their are different techniques but one that is common with all of them is that they use a rendered photo and design their own backgrounds or they can use C4D's just like portalnut sig with itachi
