Got a new laptop on black Friday and want to get label making software for it...I want something that's user friendly but will let me get pretty technical once I figure it out! The only labels I've ever made were with the templates on beerlabelizer which I don't mind but I want to be able to have more options with color, font, and design. All replies are greatly appreciated!

http://www.getpaint.net/

Paint.Net is a *free* photoshop-like program. Its like Photoshop Lite. It can be used to make labels, but you'll be pretty limited after a while. Photoshop can be intimidating, but Paint.Net is pretty easy to use.

I haven't used Paint.net for anything going to print, but it can't be too difficult to get predictable print results out of it.

gimp.org
inkscape.org

Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop (if you want a $ version instead of the free/Open source options I posted).

All of these have a lot more of a learning curve than simply using the online label generator programs, but nothing that cannot be learned through free online tutorials.

I use labeley.com/beer for all my labels. If you have the patience you can make pretty much anything. Doesnt matter what OS you are on.

Photoshop for design, MS Publisher to print the labels.
