label making

Unread postAuthor: Maniac » Sat Apr 05, 2008 2:41 pm

I have been looking at some of the labels on scottcrete's new AT 4 cannon and have been very impressed. I do not have access to photo shop or any other drawing/editing programs. The only thing i have is MSPaint. I would like to know if there are any free programs or sites that could help me with this? I have seen a few warning label sites but would like to find some others as well. Or if somone could show me how to go about making the labels with the programs on MS.

Thanks

The Gimp photo editor. It is a little clugy, but works great.

GIMP is an excellent little tool, not least because it's free.

You're not likely to get instant results mind you, takes a while to get used to any fiddly program.

Personally I've used it for so long I'm preferring to use it over CS3 :roll:

I've seen some very impressive artwork done in MS Paint, it should more than susffice if you're willing to take the time.

If you want a more advanced proggy, then I guess GIMP is the way to roll.
