    edit -> transform -> scale

    Hold shift while dragging to the size you need to constrain proportions.

    If you don't see the 'boundry' enter like 50% for height and 50% for width (just so you can see the boundry), then scale to how you need via dragging the box.

    OK, so here is my first sig ever!


    I still have a few questions if anyone can answer them.

    1 - How do I create a border?
    2 - How do I add some color to the background?
    3 - I know the font sucks. I just threw that in there.

    Thanks for everyone that gave me some tips to start out. I did cut that pic myself and thought it came out pretty well for my first time....lol

    Any comments? Suggestions? Would love to here anything that could make it better.

    1. Border... cick edit -> select all, then on the layers palette, click the add new layer. Then go to edit -> stroke. From there you can get the color you want, and the pixel size (1 usually looks best) and set it to 'inside.' Then click edit -> deselect or ctrl + D to unselect. If you use black, you wont see it until you view it in your browser, PS uses a border around the canvas by default and sometimes it looks like you don't have one there.

    2. Get ahold of some brushes (deviant art .com). Use a gradient on the bottom most layer or a solid color, then add a layer (mess with the blending mode, ie. overlay, linear light, etc) and use your new found brushes. Don't go too crazy with the second layer, just keep adding layers one at a time and play with the blending mode w/brushes. Also some decent patterns/gradients work wonders as well. You can also set your foreground/background colors to black/yellow (for example) and go to filter -> render -> clouds. If you don't like that, just hit CTRL + F to get a different variation, don't like that one, hit it again and again until you get an effect you like.

    3. dafont.com

    Also, don't forget to cut out the inside of the facemask Don't get used to the eraser tool as your means of cutting. Better start to learn the pen tool. Even some 'stock' images will make your BG look good. So just look for different ****, obscure **** and blend that into your BG, overlay some brushing and viola.

    For your first one that is very nice. Good work. The face mask needs a little editing and a border would be good.

    The hardest part is the text. That will come with time though.

    Very nice buddy.
