Welcome to the AnimeFuel Community Forums, I'm the owner of this website Demon fox and lucky for you I'm not here to use my ninja skills on yah, plenty of time for that later I assure you. Instead I'll be telling you a little about this place.
As you should be able to tell by now you are not registered with us as of yet and probably need a good reason to do so. Between you and I we both know you're a lazy bastard and so if you don't even want to listen to the rest of my introduction speech you may as well just go register.
Otherwise here's what you can do on our forums once you've registered. When you register you will be able to chit chat in our forums, entertain yourself with games and share videos with other members. The forums allows you to get access to free downloads shared by members, fast and direct support with video problems from members and staff and make anime requests which are priortized above anyone else's.
There are many more things you can do but our aim is to bring together a community of video fans where you can feel comfortable and make lots of friends around the world. God knows you need them.
So get your butt over to the registration page and join my I mean OUR community. Oh and one more thing watch out for a crazy guy with a gun he's wandering around somewhere in these pages and you'll probably see him if you become really slack with the forum.
This message will self destruct once registration is completed.

Nice sig in Elements Tut....
I am thinking a lot of people on here use Photoshop Elements, so I will
make a megatut on basics,lighting,effects...overall how to make a good
I am using Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.0, but you can do the same thing on
Making a sig with good lighting,blending,focal point preview and overall
1. Make a blank file, I made it 400x120, but resize your's accordingly...
2. Insert your render (Image without the extra stuff around) you can get them
from animerenders and planetrenders....you want a render with flow (direction of movement,
or something performing an action). I used Assassins Creed as you can see.
Note* some renders have little watermarks, erase with the eraser tool. Now place the render in
your desired position.
3.Grab a C4D, also on planetrenders. Fit it under your render layer, make sure the
C4d flows in the same direction as the render *very important). Erase parts you don't like
from the C4D. I erased parts around my render to make the render stick out more.
4.Now towards the front of the render I wanted it to be lighter. I took a 100px soft brush,
white and dabbed the front a bit, I the lowered the opacity to 34%.
5.I now blurred his left shoulder and back hand for a sense of motion blur and to
blend it with the c4d. I smudged it at a low hardness.
6.I now clicked on the render's layer and went to->filter->Paint daubs and set
brush size to 1 and sharpness to 5. This is called focal point enhancement...the
focal point now jumps out at you.
7.Time for finishing touches...I made a rectangle with the rectangle tool..rotated
and duplicated 3 times...I merged them by holding shift on the three shapes then
hit ctrl+e. I then lowered the opacity of the merged layers to 40%.
8. I added my text and rotated the text, make it a good font that doesn't jump out
and scream "I'm a newb!"...preferbly smooth not hard-edged for this piece.
9.Time for final adjustment layers...a vital part. It is best to just play around
with them but activate by going to layers->adjustment layers. I added a curves and
dragged the middle arrow to the right a bit, then a contrast/brightness and I
lowered the brightness. Then a photo filter, finally another photo filter.
10.I added a border, and I'm done...I hurried but honestly it's hard to make a
masterpiece in PS elements...so this isn't a masterpiece. I decided to remove the
I hope you learned something...this was made in elements..not PS CS versions!
Finished High Quality:
Notes: Adjustment layers are freakin' important!!!
