So you want people to know what you use but you have no way to convey it to them?  Well here's a simple solution for all you attention whores out there.<br />
<br />

<br />
1. Open up a new document, your regular sig width (I'll be using 400) by 20 pixels.  And while your at it open up your own cool logo or whatever for user, I'll be doing a user banner for Firefox because it rocks so hard.  Also fill up your background with like a light grey or white.<br />
<br />

<br />
2. put your logo on there and put the words Firefox user (or whatever it is you are telling people you use, because they care so much). Add a one pixel stroke around the outside by making a new layer, selecting the whole canvas and going to edit>stroke black inside 1 pixel.<br />

<br />
3. Now to add a shine; Note: if you don't want a shine...you don't have to put it I don't really care.  Take out your pen tool and make a shape somewhat curvy at the top of the image.<br />

<br />
4. Alright now use the path selection tool, located above the pen tool in the toolbox, and click on the path so all the boxes are filled in.  On a new layer, Right click on the path and say Fill path and use white.  Once done with that turn the blend mode of the layer to soft light. and it should end up looking like this:<br />
