a lot of people use GIMP. It's a free photo manipulation software.

I'm in Photoshop CS3... If I cant get it to work in Photoshop I go to Fireworks. Avery is great for getting things lined up and printed. Did you make your design on the correct label size to start with?

Fireworks 8, a piece of paper, ruler and a beer bottle for scale/reference, and a lot of patience. I'm not a template person. When I have something in mind, I go all-out for it. Or, I fail, and change what I had in mind.
