Excel has been my choice for some time. Cut/past pics from the net, crop or fool with in any program such as Paint or a common pic program on a Kodak picture CD disc. Excel lets you draw, color, crop, etc. It also has WordArt depending on your version, etc. Lucky for me my wife's mom is buying me the home version of PhotoShop for Christmas...CAN'T WAIT!

Default Label software with editing

I have been reading past posts and I will look at the Gimp website, but it appears that Gimp is a photo editing program but not necessarily related to "beer labels".

I use Photoshop and other programs, but what I was looking for was a "beer labeling" software program similar to CD label software programs, where you have a template, put the picture and text, and there ya go. Anything like that out there?

Microsoft Publisher can do this easily. I have used it, along with the blank template for Avery 5164 labels (6/sheet), then inserted graphics/clip art/text onto the label. Once done, I print them through my color laser printer (no runs when the bottle sweats that way) and on the bottle they go.

Default Avery 5164

Excellent post my friend. Nice to hear of a Avery number/template that one can pick up at the ole Office Depot. Probably could make the collar labels from another template if one was creative enough. Frankly, just wasn't thinking the right way and appreciate that vine.

Love this freaking forum.

I use MS Publisher to format & print my labels. On complicated designs, I use Photoshop & then import into Publisher for printing.

MS Word can definitely do that. If you're using Avery labels (or any other major brand of labels), the templates are already built in, too.
