    How do I start?

    i would like to attempt my own art work, sigs, banners etc. but have no idea how to get started? my understanding is most people use adobe photoshop, but isn't that program pretty expensive? what do all you artists use?

    MsPaint does the trick!

    GoTo your "Start" option, then select "Run" then type in mspaint and you'll be off and running in not time!!! It's free and already on your computer too!

    Get yourself a version of photoshop. Check out tutorials on Photoshop like www.pixel2life.com. Join some Gfx boards.

    paint shop pro 7, photo explosion, adobe photoshop, etc. can all be had off ebay for relatively cheap if watch for them to come up. Once you get a program you'll be glad you did, plus you can not only use it for sigs and banners but also for letterheads, business cards, greeting cards, printing and creating lables, webpages, etc.

    My wife and I got ours free Paint Shop Pro 7 from a links group we are in. It sure is nice to know some peeps that love to share their software

    Friday, if you want a Sig, let me know what you want and I will try and do one for ya.

    Prosdo made a great point. Graphix message boards are a great resource for learning tips and finding how to's on using software.

    Best part is there are tons of them. You can get ideas and a lot of them do tutorials as well.
