To make it clear, I just joined here. I was known as a guest for a while, then I suggested myself to join.
Just a Few easy effects that can make signatures look cooler
Open Your background Image and Add a New layer
On the New layer Make a shape similar to your background image with the shape tool.
Go back to the Background Image and Feather
Now on the Border Add a Drop Shadow
You can Also change the Border Layer's Properties to make cool effects like below
This effect is really simple but effective
Copy your Main image onto a new layer and flip it upside down
Move the upside down one to the bottom of the screen and lower the Opacity
Now their are so many thing you can do with the reflection but you can figure that out yourself.
Now this one is an effect I use in almost all signature I make.
Find a signature background like this and add a new layer.
On the New layer make a border around the signature.
Have the Color Wheel set to Black as Primary, Transparent as secondary. (To do this use the Color Picker over transparent)
Now Select the Paint Can and on the Tool bar Select Backwards Diagonal.
Fill the Border
Now Go to layer Properties, For the Blending Mode Select Color Burn and set the transparency to what looks good
Merge layers Feather and your done
To make the lines lighten instead of Darken, Select White and Transparent and set the Blend Mode in Layer Properties to Additive instead of Color Burn.
