    if you have the $$$ to look into Total Training DVD's. the 2 DVD set for Photoshop CS3 is great, and goes from the very basic to slightly advanced uses of PS. Lydia is also out there, but I do not like them as much.

    There are websites that have free tutorials, but the best advice is to just play with the software, and google any problems you run in to or techniques you want to use.

      Ddog is right. Playing around with an editor like GIMP or Photoshop is the best way to make your own. The one you see below too me about 4 hours or just playing around and trying different settings and filters.
      A short cut that will be your best friend is the Ctrl-Z combo. It is the undo button in most editors, and I just try something, decide if it looks good, or hit Ctrl-Z to go back and try something different.
      Also, save your work a lot. I start our and name the base picture like original. Then I play around and get something I kind of like and save as test 1. Work on it some more and save Test 2. Etc........
      That way, if I decide later on I went down the wrong track, I can go back and have a mid point to start from, instead of scratch.
      Google is your friend. Search for photoshop tutorial, and might even want to throw in signature as well. There is lots of help out there. I actually have a ton bookmarked, but I am about to run out the door for work. Will have to post them later this evening.

        by banner I assume you mean signature picture?

        I make mine with gimp. Usually I will take some good SS of the game I am playing and them mess with fonts a bit to get it right.
