Unfortunatly I can´t answer to the Rarity Scan requests because I don´t know much about rares, and I´m not gonna do Role Model posts because I suppose Breathless will want to do them. So let´s start:
1. How do you make pictures half transparent? -requested by Charmander123.
Do you mean, for example, this?
The wolf is slightly transparent so you can see a bit of the background behind it. To do this, first choose a background and a graphic that you like, and make sure there are both saved in a file on your computer. For example, I chose Peck and the Art Studio. Then, go on Photoshop and place the graphic on top of the background.
Then, right-click on the Layer of the graphic.
This will appear.
Click on blending options and this will appear:
Click on the thingy on the Opacity thing and move it to the left to make it more transparent and to the right to make it less transparent, until you have it like you want.
2. How do you make a header? -requested by anonymous.
To make a header, first you need a background image, for example:
Then, you need the text. I suggest getting it from flamingtext.com. Once there, choose the type of logo you want.
For example, I will choose Chrome. when you have clicked the logo that you like, you can customize it, changing the font and deciding what you want it to say. You might want to change the colors or make it cast a shadow so it can be read better.
Then, save it, and place it on top of the background you chose before using Photoshop.
To make it look even cooler, you can place on it some Animal Jam Graphics, click here for some really cool ones that Sheesh4 has on her blog.
If you want, you can do just that but without background, for example, this is the header that I have on my own blog.
In my opinion, if you have a very detailed image as a blog background, this type of header looks good because you can see the background behind, like this:

3. How do you make a signature? -requested by MidnightBeauty.
To make a signature, use flamingtext to put your username on an image, for example:
(Of course, instead of `username´ you put your username)

If you want you can add your blog address or your AJ animal, like I did with my own signature.
So that´s it, comment if you have any doubts or if there is another thing you want to know.
InfineteMajesty, here is the palm graphic that I used for the header on my blog:
Everyone remember to comment if you need anything!
