I do most of my labels in Photoshop but just for fun I've done a few labels in MS Paint. Yes that's right, PAINT. See below.. label was completely drawn in paint, with the mouse. It's no work of art but it was a lot of fun to draw!

I created my labels with adobe photoshop and adobe illustrator. I occasionally work in 3d graphics from 3dsmax. Its all just a matter of what you're comfortable working with. Great images can come from anywhere!

I print the labels on normal paper using a color printer, cut them out, then brush the back with milk and stick it straight to the bottle. It works brilliantly, and may just be my favorite thing that I learned on these forums.

haha, nice utilization ms paint! I often times use paint over CAD to do a lot of small drawings, and get similar if not better results, and people will still ask, wow, did you use CAD for this. Yoooou betcha.

Ok...I am still amazed by the labels you guys are making. I found this image that I'd like to incorporate into a label. I want the background of the image to take up the entire area of the label. How can I stretch the background without distorting the picture? Also, does it make more sense to use GIMP, Inkscape, or Paint.net?

Thanks!
