Question Bottlecap question

I am sorry in advance if this question has been answered already. I searched and couldn't find what I was looking for. I am going to try to attempt to make my own bottlecaps. So my question is what program do I use to edit my pictures and get them small enough and able to print them like a 1 inch circle (or a bit bigger I have a 1 inch circle bunch). I have everything else I need to make them and have all the images I want made I just don't know how to get them on a page duplicated and in circles. Thank you so much!

I have done mine in a word document but they are little squares. They punch out just fine though. I think photo shop is the one I hear a lot of people use but it has a bit of a learning curve.

Ok so how do you resize them in word so that they are that small. Sorry I am a bit dumb when it comes to fancy computer stuff like that.

I use adobe photoshop CS2. You can make the images in to circels and crop really easy.

Oh wait I just figured out the answer to my own question! But I would still like to know if anyone can tell me how I can just do it where it is in a circle and not a square.

I seriously think I am a bit on the airhead side today. So here is another random question! Where can I get that program? Is there anywhere I can download it free online? You girls are awesome! I am so glad I found this site!

I use photoshop, It is really easy to use. Just resize your image to 1x1, print it out, trim it down to a square leaving extra paper on the side, line up the 1" circular hole punch where you like the image you see and then punch it out, It will be punched out in a circle. hope that helps at all.

you're not dunb- I am! When you use word. . .do you just copy and paste an image and then resize it?? Or are you creating your own image? I know none of this stuff!!

Also, what are your plain bottle cap suppliers? I haven't purchased any yet. . .where are the best deals? Thanks!!
