That is far too big to have in your signature. We have a signature size limit of 350x140. So you would have to resize the image.
As for your Ipod, I don't think it'll show. I know when I'm on my iphone I can only see writing in peoples sigs, not IMG's.
As for the image itself, and I understand you're just starting out, the IMG lacks depth, any real focal point, flow, background, and effects.
As I've mentioned to you before, you need to go on youtube and look for beginner photoshop tuts. Watch 20 if you have to, and start
copying them, then that way you start to become more familiar with photoshop and it's abilities, and you'll start to gain some experience.
When you post your IMG's here, we'll give you tips and CnC, and you'll progressively get better. Keep at it mate.
Oh, also, in about a week or so, I'm going to be posting some beginner sig tuts of my own, so you can also have a crack
at them if you're interested.

I'll probably just make sigs for fun then as there is not much point in using one if I'm usually on my iPod lol.
I'll definitely go on YouTube today and check out some signature tutorials.
As for your tutorials, will they be for Photoshop or gimp (I noticed that before you posted gimp tuts)?
Thanks for the help!

They will be photoshop tuts. I started out with gimp, but now I use PS.

I looked at some tutorials and read about some things like light sources and vectors.
I know this is far from your standards guys - but any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Its all about layers, the background gradient u have used as a background doesn't really work - we use these things set to a different setting like soft light to add effect to the whole picture.
Have a look at this simple guide

Thanks pob, that site is really good! I will do those tutorials before making another sig.
I really appreciate how you guys are helping out a noob who "dreams big" lol...

I can't take much credit for this one, as it was a WoW wallpaper. I just added some adjustment layers, and blurred and sharpened different areas to achieve this outcome.
I'll be adding this to the free signature giveaway. Be sure to snap it up lol.

After: Made some adjustments. What's the verdict?
