Again, more than half of you voted for this in the poll!
I included two versions of this tutorial. In light blue, you'll find directions on how to do everything right in GimpShop. Honestly, this is what I tend to do, as I'm pretty comfortable using the program. For those of you who feel overwhelmed by the Gimp interface, I included alternate directions (in a medium blue) which include a brief portion in Gimp, and the remainder of the tutorial in Gimp. They both have the same effect, so it's totally up to you!
Now... onto the tutorial!
Now, for the tutorial that incorporates PowerPoint!

As far as next week's poll is concerned, I just came across a MAJOR find in PowerPoint... Do you remember my previous post on giving a picture a transparent background? Well... I just stumbled across a way to do this right in PowerPoint!!! So obviously that will be on next week's poll!
