Suggestions?

Hey guys, I made my sig the other day, and am looking for suggestions on what I should/could do to improve it.

My photoshop skills are very rusty, I haven't used the program in about 5 years, sig is below.

fyi. I have pretty much no artistic talent, so I can't really picture in my head what I may be able to do.

It's good for a beginner, but you could work on a couple of things. For one, you can try and spruce up the typography, it's too plain. Also, try and give your pictures more contrast, they're too dark and don't stand out as well.

And one last thing, its way too big (220x420)

I would make the pics stand out more and add some details to the black, kind of plain.

It's still too big. Right now it's 450X180. It can be no bigger then 420X220 so resize it for me within a few hours.

The images of Miller are way to light. Font is pretty basic, I'd try saucing that up a bit. That's really all there is.

I purposely wanted the first image to be faded so you could barely see it, so it was kind of just the background...then I ran out of ideas and just applied it to the others..haha.
