    Might be worth having a look at GIMP - It's a free not-Photoshop.

    I don't use it myself, but I keep hearing good things. :)

    If you need to re-size the picture, I can help. Just give the word and I'll do it.

    yep that logo is perfect, I sort of went for the baboon handwriting feel(as it goes along with trying to draw letters with the mousepad of your laptop), but I will try to use that to see what it looks like.

    And then when I'll realize it's gonna take me ages, where someone more proficient would do that eyes closed, I'll come back screaming for help :) (help appreciated btw)

    I just donwloaded the Gimp(I know the basics from photo filtre studio)so i'ill give it a go tomorrow.

    EXCELLENT!!! :laughing:

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I tried the Gimp but I'm more used to photofiltre so I'll just work with the free trial version and try and come up with something decent
    I just wondered wether once reduced to avatar size it would still be recognizable or if I should go for less elements in the picture

    Until Freak or Omph or Ragabash resets the "upload avatar" setting, you're not going to be able to upload whatever you come up with unless you put it on Photobucket or some similar service and link to it.

    Just saying.

    Well the good thing about this avatar is that I can change the text anytime
    It s not difficult just a little tedious as you have to make a complete pic for each part of the text...

    unless there is a quicker way to insert that text in a fixed image, but that I don't know how to do :oops:
