Just wanted to pass this along when I first came to the forums I saw a lot of amzing signatures with Gifs and tried out a lot of apps and software out there to create my own.

I found Gimp to be a great option if people wanted to try making fan art transparency art or their own gifs.

It's a free app that allows you to add transparency to images and make gifs. Takes some time to learn to use but once you do it's actually quite easy there are a lot of how to videos out there.

I'm no pro at Photoshop and had no previous knowledge of how to make transparencies or gifs prior to making my Signature, it's a combination of many different images where transparencies were added and over layed then gifs added in the final process.

Not going to add a link as it may break forum rules but just Google Gimp it's an easy search. I think a lot of people will be surprised to what they can create with it.

These are the separate images I modified and combined for the final product.

    Those days were like the "Old West" for the forum.  We had a gold rush of badges, an arms race of graphical signatures, and the hype train was dropping off Ashes pioneers every hour of the day.  We were forging our own forum culture through willpower and humor!  

    I know it wasn't all that long ago, all things considered, but man, that was a fun period of time wasn't it? ;)
