What program do yall use for making labels. I tried Gimp and well its way to complex for me. I even read the tutorials and still have problem after problem. Is their anything simpler out their. Preferable free. Im not looking for anything fancy just the ability to resize and put in text.
I use Gimp for some of the touch ups. They have a few brush modes that I like. but Artweaver although similar is a little easier to navigate. I'm pretty much in the same boat though. I just don't know enough about the graphic arts so will probably have to take a class or something to really be able to use them and really make a GOOD label. There are a few programs on the web like label maker but they want $25-$40 and they only do very basic type labels. I wasn't to impressed. I've heard of quite a few who use PhotoShop but didn't care for the price tag...$200 +. Also found Open office which has a drawing program but haven't had much time to be a ble to figure it out yet. Let me know if you finally find one though, cause I'd be really interested too!
I know as a printer Illustrator is the way to go if you ever plan to have your labels printed (by a printer). The drawback (like onecolumbyte said the prog. is big bucks). What ever you do don't expect printers can use type set in photoshop (or the like). If you are printing the labels at home or plan to have them digitally printed use what ever prog. that you are comfortable with (assuming your printer can convert that prog.).
