    dunno, but i do remember that one of the borders was transparent when image was .xcf, i think it was created when i saved as .jpg (as .jpg does not support transparency)[ot]beyond that, it's like you said (can't find it, but it was something like this)[/ot]
    BTW: i need more playtime with GIMP[ot]if i remember anymore, i'll let you know[/ot]Edit: and make sure all layers are merged down, as layers can be not included in the conversion to .jpg

    Edit: i think "flatten image" was also used[ot]does flatten image do the same thing as merge down ?[/ot]

    Edit: the original .xcf also has a shadow border inside the transparency, i don't know how i did that[ot]i try to recreate it[/ot]

    i've remembered, i resized the pic (smaller) and created a new sig pic (500 X 200) & did a few stuff to the blank transparency and pasted the pic (smaller sig) into the transparency) and saved it as .jpg (i think)

    :good:
    well it appears to merge all layers[ot]but i could be wrong[/ot]
    so i was right (well, nearly)

    can't wait to see it
