What software does everyone use to make their labels?

I've never made one before because I don't bottle as much as I should and they get drank fast but I would like to give it a shot for a new batch I am brewing.

I havn't made any labels yet myself, but nowadays I use Gimp for the majority of my graphics creation/editting.

On that note, has anyone tried GIMPshop yet? It's suppose to be an adaptation of Gimp to be more like photoshop. I havn't had a chance to play with it yet and was wondering what folks impressions of it were.

How easy is it for a Photoshop person to convert to Gimp?

If you use GimpShop it should be real easy...the UI looks pretty close. I'm playing around with it now...haven't found too many major diffs.

I use Publisher. I d/l'd GIMP, and am still trying to figure it out. I like Publisher because I can set it to print 6-up on plain paper. I'll post some labels as soon as I can figure out how to do it.

I use gimp/gimpshop. not much difference between them really, never used photoshop, so can't comment. I usually export them as a png, import them to Word/OpenOffice and stick 6 of them on a page.

Piece of cake. The interface is slightly different but GIMP and Photoshop are compatible with many of the same file formats. GIMP is also compatible with all of your .PSD files.
And GIMP is FREEE!!!
