I use Microsoft Word with the Avery template 8164, print out on a laser printer, and cut to size using a paper cutter. Then I affix using a technique I found on the label forum, using about 1/2 cup of hot water and 1/2 a packet of Knox gelatin mixed and put in a spray bottle. I use the spray bottle to put the adhesive on the label, and then put it on the bottle. When it is time to take the label off, hot water does the trick in about 10-15 seconds.

I am with you. I used it to manipulate (very basically) some photos to put on the wall. I would love to know more.

So for you gimp experts.

Do you have any help for the guy who opens the software opens a graphic file of one of my pictures I want to start with for a label, then starts to stutter and drool like an idiot with no clue how to proceed. Is there a short course on terminology and work flow to create a basic label.

Thanks
Wayne

Here is where I learned about the gelatin adhesive technique:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f46/use-...hesive-354082/

Make sure you stir in the gelatin with a whisk or fork for about a minute. I then use a funnel to pour the mixture into a cheap spray bottle I got from the dollar store. I only spray 2-3 times on the back of each label, then affix the label to the bottle. I use a damp paper towel to smooth out the label onto the bottle and ensure the adhesive sticks well.

My first two attempts. Fall line is on the bottle and some will be served on a family ski trip. Eurich Pond is next up and will be unveiled at a wedding. Eurich is pronounced "irish" and is a mountain biking trail we enjoy. Not nearly the beautifully done things I have seen here. Just a simple picture with text boxes.

Jpcourtney you do some nice work. You also get the award for living in the most remote location. I love that area in the Sandhills.
