Seriously. Now, keep ion mind that you are talking to a 35 yr. old guy that has the computer savy of, well, a 35 yr. old guy that is a carpenter. I want to make a Special label for a brew for St. Patty's day for a Party. Should I be looking into Software for this, or is it easier then that?

I use PhotoShop. It's not free...

GIMP is free, and is pretty nice for the price...!

http://www.gimp.org/

It can be intimidating to use these programs. They're both feature rich. Perhaps someone can recommend an easier to use program? I'm thinking along the lines of a consumer photo editing software package, perhaps?

OP, Can you draw? It doesn't have to be any more complicated than a sheet of paper, a couple of pens, and a photocopier.

If you've got Word on your computer, you can generate some decent labels using WordArt. Inkscape is a free graphic program used by many to make labels, but has a fairly steep learning curve.
