text never makes a sig better and will most likely ruin your sig

Recommended Posts

borders are starting to suck too.

i like borders on things that look good with borders. i think some form of text should be included in everything and that there is a perfect style of text that could fit every image, but it's not easy to find depending on what you make.

wanna fight?

Imo, I think text and borders can look good but as long as you're doing it right! =]

If you're doing it wrong, then...!

Text can just add that little bit it needed to your sig, if done well. Borders are a no-no for me.

Rarely, it can feel a void to make the sig more "whole".

it only takes away from the focus of your sig.

text cannot ever make a sig better. it can be indifferent at best.

next time you make something, keep the text away. you'll see how much better it will look.

You can't say that for all sigs, in fact I saw many sigs that had incredible text ( here is one of the sigs i weared ):

it doesnt matter how good your text is, it doesnt make your sig better.

the text on that sig would've been much better if they would've:

-dropped the gradient overlay

-duplicate the layer

-use a little of the dodge tool around the slightest edges of the upper layer

-lower the opacity of the upper layer to about 50-80%

-change the blending layer of the bottom layer to screen, or something similar to that effect (and perhaps messing with opacity)

-moved the little design over the text from the left aligning of the text to the right

just my opinion =x
