I google for images as well. I use gimp for my images. I use the circle tool to cut out a 1" circle from the original image to use for my caps.

One of the gals on here sells a gimp tutorial on her etsy for $5. I've not tried it, but here it is really good. I will see if I can find a link.

thank you!! funny thing is i have a tutorial on them but i just dont know how to crop the darn thing. I think I will have to spend the 5bucks to do it , because I am not getting anywhere. Now the resolution has to be high like what? Should I be looking for wallpapers? backgrounds? or just lg images
thanks again for all your help

the larger the image the better, if you use a tiny image it will look grainy/pixely when you print out the images. they don't have to be high res but the higher the resolution the clearer the image will be

I don't use gimp but a different software. When I get my image I crop the extra stuff I don't want out & then I resize the image to my size.
