    Please forgive the tech challenged request. I see lots of members with completely original artwork as their sig pic. How can I do this, where do I go, and is it free to do or do I need to buy some software?

    Note: I have Microsoft Office 2007 if there are any tools in there that might help.

    You will need to download or purchase a photo/imaging software. There's a free one that is popular to use known as "Photoscape". At that point you can find images on the Internet using Google's search engine and clicking "Images", and with the software you can change/manipulate the image to be your own custom design.

    It also takes loads of practice.

    Then once you've created your image, you'll need a place to host it for you so you can use it in your signature. Photobucket and Imageshack are two popular free image hosting websites. You'll need to create an account with them to do so.

    WARNING: Some images you may come across are done by artists and some may not like you using their artwork without permission. If you do use someone's image that's not already working in the comic field, be sure to give credit for the original image/design/whatever.

    Hope that helps.
