In this topic I am listing a few image editing programs to use for making recipe cards. (the fun images and clip art and borders and such) as well as typing in the recipes. I have not used them myself as I have other image editing programs that I have used for about 17 years now. Mine are not free and they are very complex, therefore they are not on this list. I did research into the programs I chose for you.. and for several reasons they made it into the list. They are easy to use... and they are FREE. You will need to download these. So with that being said... let's start.
The first program I will urge you to look into... is probably already on your computer. It is Microsoft Paint. To locate it and start using it.. do this: 1. click on Start 2. click on All Programs 3. click on Accessories 4. click on Paint Here is a link for online help. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windo ws7/products/features/paint
The next program is Sumopaint. Download the FREE version of this. http://www.sumopaint.com/www/
The next program is Paint.net http://www.getpaint.net/
The next program is Gimp (little more complex but does offer extensive help tutorials) http://www.gimp.org/
I have not used these.. however most image editing programs are about the same. So.. if you have a question please ask. I may be able to help you with it... and I can certainly help find the solution if I do not know.
Any questions, responses or comments to this posting... please make a new topic and let's leave this one as it is so it stays on top and easy to spot for everyone. Thanks all.
