Hello all this is a simple way to make really good pictures/siggys using paint.net Just follow the steps below to learn what you need to know. ( Sorry bout big pictures)

1.) Make a new image using the Size stated in the picture.
Image

2.) Making the Background, use a render background that will influence the patern for the rest of the image. I dont suggest the bottom 3. And flames requires you make a gradient for it to work.
Image

3.) Now add a layer using the layer bar.

4.) Do a search for C4D Abstract. Choose a picture and paste it on the image like so.
Image

5.) Now go to the Effects bar and change the image around. After satisfied go to the layer bar and go to the properties. Change the bar that starts out on normal to what you think looks best, should end up like this.
Image

6.) Repeat this until the background is set for the text. Add the Font and change it around with effects until your satisfied. And your done...easy right? :D

I'll stick with my Photoshop CS2 thank you very much :D

Good tutorial nonetheless, however you're relying on the program having rendering features, which is kind of cheating. :P

:P hit F7 and click on the layer you want to modify then layer properties getting a gradient to blend helps if using layer properties
