Rad Signature Line Creator?
 
I've seen some folks with cool signature lines that have pictures of all their toons or ships in them. Any tips on how to make one of these? Is it just screen shots and photoshop?

Yes... or gimp. Gimp is freeware that does what Photoshop does. Couple of screen shots a little research into famous quotes and your set 8)

Print Screen + Photoshop for mine

Experience and inspiration also helps. Gimp is cool until you play some with Photoshop. After that, you wouldn't even poke it with a stick.

I put these templates together based on the signature that I use.

Remember, regardless of what you see other people doing, you should obey the forum signature rules. According to the forum rules, signature images displayed on the forums must be no wider than 500px and no taller than 150px. They must be in JPG format, and they must be of a filesize no greater than 50k. If you're adding text , quotes, or text links to your signature.. be sure to reduce the size of any image you show, to account for the extra space used by the text.

the STO academy has a facility that lets you make your own sigs

its pretty much idiot proof and the results aren't exactly bad ;)

Mine was done in photoshop. It is very easy, if you dont have the software to do one I am sure that someone on the forums would be happy to make you one

I make sigs for my entire fleet, it's really easy and all you really need is photoshop. Although a 3d rendering program like MAX or Poser is handy too, because then you aren't limited to game graphics.
