Warrenhn-I'm there with ya thinking it is some secret society!! I tried to use the free trial of photoshop and could figure out what the heck I was doing. So now I just buy images or have someone make them for me.

It is a conspiracy!! Someone should make instructions on how to make images and they would make a killing!!! HINT HINT people!!

You guys are soooooo funny.

I used to do images on candy wrappers and lots of other things. Since I'm clueless with photoshop, I started using Candy Wrapper Software - Make Candy Wrappers from Home haven't used it in a looong time but was thinking about starting up again just for glass tile and bottlecap images. It is super easy to use once you get the hang of it. Then you just buy digital images from D.A.I.S.I.E., wrapcandy folks, or digital warehouse.

HTH,

Shawn

Wow, Jen. Some people are totally ridiculous and unhelpful. Glad there was someone out there who could answer a question without being a smartass.

I make my bottle cap images in my graphics program. If I had not gone to school for art I would have had no idea how to make them either. I don't mind explaining how I make them. I don't know how other people make them but this is how I make mine.

I save the picture I want or I draw a graphic with my mouse in my art program. If I am using a picture I have to re-size it, if the image is square I then Need to make a 1 inch circle that has no fill in the middle but with a 1 point border so I can see where I need to crop it. Then I have to use my pen tool and crop out all the areas that are not within the circle and fill those areas white.

If I draw the image my self I zoom in and draw it large until I like my design. Then I group the image and resize it.
I make a 1 inch circle and fill it in the color of my choice.
Next I grab my image I created, size it and place it on top of the the 1 inch filled circle.

If I had a way to capture each step in a photo I would make the instructions. This is the best way I can explain it, it is time consuming to make the images.

These are some sample images of bottle caps I made by drawing the art with my mouse.



This would be a sample of caps made by using existing pictures and cropping / editing them except for the sweet & sassy which I typed the text within the filled circles.

Sure, any image that I hand draw is much easier to resize to any shape as long as I know what the exact size it is intended for. For example if you would want them for a glass pendant I would need to know you would want them to be 1 inch wide x 2.5 inch long. So you would just measure your glass and tell me the specs for them. I will email you. On other images they take more work to resize, I actually can't just resize them they have to re-done. I will email you.
