    Just a little tip for the future. Try saving your images in PNG format rather than JPEG. The image quality will be greatly noticeable.

    Maybe smaller sig sizes?
    I'm not a fan of huge sigs :/
    Personal preference.
    Just asking,but did you just put a background added a render and then text? ...
    Looks pretty much like everything you did
    Anyways save as .pngs next time like Faux said.

    Sorry but i've heard this all too much now and it's just not true. Let me illustrate. This is not just at you faux, sorry if it looks like that :3:





    One is a jpg, the other a png. Without looking at the link code its impossible to know. Why? Because Photoshop intrduced the 'difference' layer mode. This essentially highlights any differences in the layer with the one below. With the above example we get this difference:


    Thats how much visable difference there is between them. Black = same pixels. Granted there is an extremely small differerence, only visable with wacked out adjustment layers. If you claim to see a difference its because you're sub-conciously trying to find it and they appear very slightly differently according to the levelm you view them on your screen.

    Let us compare this to a lower quality jpeg: (this one is about 1/4 of the full quality jpeg [i.e. mostly uncompressed]



    The difference is now visable, right? and it shows in the difference layer:



    Conclusion: Please can everyone stop using the file type as an observation to poor quality. That is solely down to the person who made it. Stop jpeg hate. P.S. youtube this is no excuse to keep your 256kb limit. Even RSS twitter allows 800.


    @kabodle Practice, practice, practice. Just keep working on stuff and you'll get better. Simple as that. There are a ridiculous amount of resources and tutorials on the internet that it would be pointless me linking you to any one of them. GL.

    Mainly because it makes no difference which one you use. Especially since the difference in size (kb wise) is trivial with today's speeds. And obviously if you occasionally do stuff with transparency then its just a matter of personal preference. In all fairness its no big deal, but telling people to save as png isn't going to solve their issues.
