    I see some of you have banners on your websites. I would like to make a banner for our farm, but we don't have software to make a banner. :(

    Is there somewhere I can make one for free?

    Thanks for your help!

    If you have Microsoft paint, you can make a banner.

    Thanks Crissa! I do have a question, though. It says for personal use only...I want to make a banner that we would have advertised on the Khimaira...would that be okay?

    That should be fine, I think it means that you can't distribute it to others for a price or sell creations that you make for other people. I use it all the time.

    Yep that's the one! I love to play around with the different effects! :D I wish I could do what Stacey does and take a "picture" of what to do.

    I'm not really all that computer savvy either. It's actually pretty simple once you start playing with it.

    Well... I downloaded it and have no idea how to use it! How did you get the outline of your animals on a different background? And what is the magic wand thing used for? I am confused, but hopefully playing around with it will help me understand what I'm doing. LOL

    Okay I'll try, to get the outline you go down to the polygon thing and you just follow the outline of the goat with it. First you'll want to make the background though. I haven't really used the magic wand so I have no idea what it does, I'll try to figure it out. What else do you want to know?

    I use the majic wand for copying and pasteing. But I use Photoshop Pro so it may be a bit different.

    That's a lot better than what I did! I really like it, how did you do the background?

    Oh, first I did a solid color, then I used the smudge tool, then I swirled it (which I found in the toolbar as a option).

    Thanks! I've done some other things too, but I'm working on an English paper now (due tomorrow :x ) So I'll have to show them later...

    What do you ya think? It needs some touch-ups. I started getting frustrated, because I couldn't figure out how to get the cropped pic to where I wanted it! :oops: :lol: Downloaded something else and that didn't work either, so I just starting playing around on the one you gave me, Crissa. And I figured it out!! We are getting along better now! :D
