Welcome to my first instructable ^u^
In this instructable, I show how to make a very basic forum signature / avatar. You will learn how to use transparency and layers too!
So lets get to it.
Step 1: Open the First Image.
Open an image you want to use for the background in your favourite art or photo editing program.
Step 2: Open a New Layer.
Make sure it is on top of the background. To open a new layer, click the button that looks like a sheet of paper with a green plus sign next to it.
Step 3: Copy and Paste the Next Image Into the New Layer.
Right click the image and select copy. Click the paste button, and ta daa, the image appears. I know it looks funny, but keep going.
Step 4: Set the Opacity to Low.
On the layers window, click the button that looks like a tag and a pencil. Another window should open up. Slide the opacity down until you like the effect.
Step 5: Save It!
Don't forget to save your progress!
Please remember I used Paint.NET.
