Easy Way to Make Banners, Buttons, & Backgrounds
« on: March 26, 2010, 12:35:40 AM »
I posted a tutorial on my blog (which I write from my other shop name, owlsomegifts).  I thought it might be helpful!

I've tried using picnik and it loads really slowly, how do you get around that?

I am not sure how to speed it up... It usually goes pretty fast for me, unless I am using wireless internet... then it can be quite slow!

Thanks for this information, Rachael, I have that "fuzzy" problem you were speaking about in your blog, and I can't wait to try Picnic to see if I can get around that issue.  ;) :)

Thanks, I will check it out. I'm trying to help a friend get her Etsy shop started and she will need a banner.  Plus, I'd like to redo mine or have an extra one to switch back and forth.

I used Picnik to make our banner. :) Huge improvement over Paint. ::)
