    How do you add sat? Airbrush? Hue/sat is very easy to use, and very important to learn. My Fallout 3 sig has over... I think 8 or 9 hue / sat layers, and alot of others...

    Edit: O wait it does not, but oh well... This is an older version without the sun spots:

    i switch the image into lab color mode and adjust the contrast of the a and b channels, really a kick ass method.

    alright, i'll just use the roflcopter pic:
    [​IMG]
    first you gotta put into lab color
    [​IMG]
    you have to adjust the contrast of channel a and channel b, these contain the color orientation in grayscale
    while the lightness layer contains the actual colors, select one, and hit the eye on the lab channel so you can see it in color
    [​IMG]
    afterwards it looks like that

    also im on a faded non-calibrated monitor, so i might've over saturated a bit..

    I get that one to be perfect! It was very difficult to decide between the original and the inverse... they are both very nice... It's like depending on which...

    However, I'd really wanted to have a text on it (something like stretched bold italic in the background would be marvellous) saying "CLEVO D901C", because after all my notebook is a Clevo D901C and that's what makes it kinda stand out (and what will make me proud of the sig for the couple of months to come before it gets superceded!)

    Apologies for replying late - the reason I bought the laptop is that I am not home for the larger part of the week comprising the weekend... At least I have the gaming issue solved... I'll be thinking about the internet access issue later on!

    ah okay, i'll send the sig back to jr and have him put the text, and i'll do the round edges once hes done, do you want the inverse or the regular?

    The inverse in that the one I quoted in post #168 of this thread.

    If it might help, I'm OK with the Nvidia logo being smaller so as to get the Clevo D901C thingie inside... :)

    Uhhh ;) as for Trip, I hate to admit it but you got it right, I am a tomboy as far as pc and tech stuff is concerned.... You should have seen the shopowner's face when I bought the lachesis mouse - I had been posting longtime on a local forum and as expected they thought I was male as were 100% of the forum members. After (as I normally do) I had a couple of threads open questioning the pro's and con's of the lachesis.... I went to the shop (who's owner is a member of the local forum) and he recognised me. Well I saw his jaw dropping when he asked me if I was BlackPanther... :ohwell: :eek:
    Triprift says thanks.

    ROFLMAO @ the lachesis story.

    so inverted edition with rounded edges and add the text, making the nvidia logo possibly smaller in order to make space. sounds good to me, i'll let jr proceed, he'll probably get it done either tonight or tommorow morning is my guess, and i'll probably have it re-worked and what not by tommorow evening, so yeah expect it tommorow evening.
    Black Panther says thanks.

    jr, just grab sigrevised.1 from my out box, and run with it, dont worry about inverting or rounded edges, leave that to me, just get the text and what not and then drop into my IN box once you're done :toast:
