    Give the "center avatar" an outer glow of white, along with the typefont. Oh and not to be picky, change it from 2x2bg ddr3 to 2x2GB DDR3.

    Also,

    -give the inioch badge more emphasis than the tpu badge :p
    -tpu badge looks too bland.. give it a slight bevel or emboss and see that works (maybe an outer bevel?)
    -try increasing saturation on the avatar, see if it helps (also, jr has an excellent idea with the outer glow of white, never thought of that)
    -Make text thicker.. it's too skinny.. maybe a different font, or font manipulation,
    -yellow glow doesn't work.. too matching with background.
    -- try this instead : add a good solid drop shadow, with a thin white outer glow(maybe inner), and give it a good inner bevel, without overdoing the bevel.

    see how that works out :) as always if you want, you can always send me the psd and i can help you out if you want :)

    Thanks man, Yeah I am looking at doing some courses on it since I do have an interest.
    BTW for anyone that is interested I do not use Adobe Photoshop (too expensive for me) I use Serif DrawPlus X4. It is a very cheap alternative to PS.

    ahhhhhhhhhhhh

    that's gonna be annoying yo..

    what kind of files does serif save them as? can you save them as psd's? or something that photoshop can open?

    i'm so used to photoshop teminology.. that's why you were probably like WTF when i sent you all of those suggestions..

    see if you can export as psd. otherwise see if you can save it as a png and still retain the layers..

    I want to try your serifplus files in my photoshop..

    So it should be something to do with racing? Or just any cool avatar which is only blue and yellow?

    Holy crapple there is a thread I can go to have an artist fix my avatar! Awesome.

    I've always wanted my avatar to have a background that was the same as the forum's default background color (so it looks clean). Unfortunately I lack photoshop, I'm colorblind and aesthetically inept. (If you're suddenly overwhelmed with tears I can only apologize, I do not intend to burden you with my plight. :D)

    I attached the pic that I nabbed for my current avatar. I'm hoping to keep the "STREET FIGHTER II tm" bit of the attached image. I'd like to use this particular image as the starting point because it's the exact logo from the game of my namesake.

    Thanks!

    Here you go. I removed the background altogether, and made the image transparent, so that it'll work on any background.. Also i had to removed the old drop shadow, and put a new one, along with a slight bevel to retain some of the smoothness of the original text.


    edit: DAMN. pvt, you beat me to it! i feel like a royal moron to not refresh and see that you already did it! oh well, since we did it in 2 different styles, he's got a choice now lol. Sorry about that man!

    FYI: check out Paint.Net, it's free and the magic wand allows you to easily select and delete backgrounds. I see sombeody has already done this for you, but if you want to experiment yourself download this program.

    Also Try these guys. Demo software on there that may be all you need for small jobs with easy to follow guides on youtube.
