Step 2: Get a Good Photo Editing Program

Picture of Get a Good Photo Editing Program

For my logos, I used GIMP.

Here's a link to download it: www.gimp.org/ ----Don't worry....It's free


*Sorry For The Tiny Picture*

Step 3: Edit Your Picture Any Way You Want It

Now, you edit the picture to give it those artsy effects like in my logos.  For example, i added color to mine to make the splatter skull turn purple. You can also add special elements, like a flare or a motion blur. This effect gives your logo some spice.

Step 4: Add a Title to Your Picture

 Now, you add a title with your user name and make it a cool looking font and color. Then, you merge the two layers together to make one.

They need to be square otherwise bits get cropped-off when people see it anywhere else but your page upper-left. Your examples are pretty-much square, but you should add it as a note. Also transparent & animated gifs only work on your page upper-left.

Thanks. What did you say about the animated gifs?
They only work on your homepage in the big avatar picture.
