Many that you see are done by Shelli. You can do it yourself, fairly easy with any graphics program.
I did mine with Paint Shop Pro - other people have done theres with different programs etc. Give it a try with a program that you already have - it's great fun!!
Peta ,I also was thinking the same thing. I thought I would take all of this technology one step at a time. I've only just learnt how to edit my pics and post them on here. I've been thinking asbout this next step though. Wont be long and I'll figure that out as well.
So if there is some very nice, kind ,careing individual or a group of you would like to put us on to the right path, I'm sure Peta ,I and many others would apreciate it. :pray: :hug: in advance :hug: Matilda
Most photo editing programs come with a HELP tab at the top of the screen. Many have demos you can watch but the help will often give you an over view or you can type in a question you'd like answered. Start with something simple like adding text. Don't shoot for a "Shelli" avatar or you'll frustrate yourself! I know she's spent a lot of time learning. And that's what it takes, the patience to sit and learn a program.
Many digital cameras come with some kind of photo editing software that will allow you to add text as well.
I used MGI PhotoSuite (I think it may have come with my hubby's Sony digital camera?) and now use JASC Paint Shop Pro.
Do a search here on teddy talk for AVATARS or BANNERS or photo software as we've had many discussions about this in the past and you might see names of other programs you could use. Many times your local office supply store will have simple photo editing software in the bargain bin.
Hi Peta and Welcome So great to see you here. Its a wonderful group and there is lots of good bear talk :D
I used photoshop to create my avatar. You can email me if you wish and I'll help you. It's not too hard and considering you published your own website, think you'll have one up in a jiffy :)
Glad to see you back in the bear world :)
