I think I'll download and figure out GIMP at home and give that a try.
I'm only doing labels for the beers that knock my socks off and this was one of them. It'll be worth the time.
Thanks for all the input everyone!
Here's what you do with the GIMP, (imo). Take your label, then go in with a dark color, real fine pen set to like %60 opacity. Zoom in and shadow it. When you are done, zoom back out. Then take out the smudge tool (again use a lower opacity) and you can blend it smooth. Remember to save between steps and to pause once in a while and look at it fullscreen. This technique works very nicely. GIMP has some cool @ss stuff in it.
