Default First shot at a label

I played around with this a bit, but realized that the learning curve on these graphics utilities is too steep for my casual use...

Comments?
Thanks

Love the name!

Gotta say that the graphics programs are kicking my @ss too, though.

Nice looking label. Is that supposed to be a play on words? If not, the phrase is actually, "delusions of grandeur."

What program are you using? I found paint.net to be pretty good and there are plenty of guides available to do common things.

pretty interesting. I always think of beer labels as sketch or more of a cartoon look.. nice photo incorpoeration.

reminds me of acid brand cigars because of the bike

I was playing around with Paint.net, GIMP, and Inkscape. I found it easiest to do the text with Inkscape because it allows one to edit the text after the fact...the other 2 programs seem to imbed the text into the image so that it cannot be changed.
The image itself was not mine. I found it on the web and someone in this forum helped me stretch the background.

At least with Paint.net you are correct, I found the solution was to make a new layer for each set of text. Then you can manipulate the entire layer to add shading or other manipulations.

That's pretty killer! But the real question is: are you actually going to print these out and put them on your beer?
