Calling X-Philes.....  
Can anyone reccommend the best free image editing software for download? Since my computer crashed I just realised that I don't have ANY and was about to start making a small banner for a new video project.

Or...

Is anyone interested in making me a little banner for my new video? I'm pretty useless at the digital art stuff. (I'd love you FOREVER)

Peace and love,

Yvonne xxx

I'll gladly make you a banner. :) Just let me know the "theme" or anything specific you want! :D

Love you for this.

I want it to be fairly simple, preferrably using the image from the Memento Mori outtake where Scully is sitting on her bed after her talk with Bill and she is looking down at her hands.

If you could include the name of the video which is 'Hope There's Someone' and 'by Requiem_x'

Other than that just do whatever you fancy - Your the artist.

Oh, I should mention that the video is Scully POV cancer arc.

Mulder is the 'someone'.

Awesome! :)

No problem! I'll work on it now!

Oh any specific size?

I don't know....just what would fit in an LJ post....you choose.
Kristen: KK1octoberaine on August 4th, 2009 09:26 pm (UTC)
Okay works for me :) I'm not sure I have the picture of Scully though. You think you could get it to me or show me where I might find it? :)

Not very good quality

You could use another image of Scully that would fit the theme if you have better quality ones.

Thanks again! xx

Well, I'm aware that quite a few people use GIMP...but even that was a bit too labor-intensive for my taste. (I need something very user-friendly.) For my video banners, I just use picnik.com. Most of the features are free, and I've been able to create some lovely things with it. It has shortcomings of course, such as the fact that there's no layering capability as with programs like Photoshop. But if you're going for simple, it may serve your needs.

Hope I could help! :]

Thank you SO much! That sounds like exactly what I need!

I'm a total dunce at digital art! I really hope to take the time to learn it properly!

Much love to you for commenting!
Chelsearchelsea2005 on August 4th, 2009 09:47 pm (UTC)
Oh goodness. It is incredibly easy to use, really. It has some nice effects (cross-process, cinemascope *g*) and there are always new fonts being added to the text section. I've had a lot of fun with it.

Anytime, my dear! If you need any further help, let me know :)

Hey bb :D I could help you with some banner options, if you'd like. Just let me know for when you would like it, and what you want on it, and I'll give it a try. And about the image editing software, have you ever tried GIMP? It's free, and you can pretty much do the same stuff that you can in Photoshop on it.

ETA: LOL, never mind! I was too late commenting (but Octoberaine will rock with your banner, you'll see ;D)

Thanks so much for your offer - I'll keep you in mind for next time because I SUCK major at all that stuff.

Will try out GIMP!

Youtube is having problems uploading my video so we'll see if it actually makes it up there.... :(

Sure thing, hun :) I'd be glad to help you anytime.

GIMP can be a bit complicated at firts, but you get used to it quickly :) Hope YouTube stops being a pain in the ass soon! One of my friends keeps having so many problems with it, always deleting her videos, or taking way too long to upload D:
