Do you need a Facebook, Twitter, or blog profile image of yourself? Do you want it to be accurate
Step 1: Tools You Will Need
A Windows based PC. (You can do this on a Mac, too, but you will need to substitute other software.)
A digital photo of yourself.
IrfanView software. You can also use another free photo viewing software, such as Picasa, XnView, Zoner Photo Studio Free, Fastone ImageViewer, or WildBitViewer. All of these are free, simple to use, and let you fix red-eye, color tone, resize, and crop. Just make sure it can open an image in the “png” format. If you have a Mac, iPhoto will do the same, and comes free with your computer. Gimp is a free photo editor, too, but it’s very complicated to use. Of course, if you already have Photoshop then just use it, but you are on your own.
Inkscape vector software. Inkscape is free and there are versions for all operating systems: Windows (all flavors), Mac, and Linux.
