Hi Marly,
I hope I can make sense out of this. For the very large images that I am sharing I simply open one in Paint Shop pro. I then use the shape tool/rectangle and draw a vector in a light gray color. Then I go up to layer properties and reduce the properties from 100 to whatever I want. I think I set mine to about 35. Then I add a new raster layer. Here I add my first text(Shinade Studios) in vector mode so that I can stretch it and make it fit the size of the box. Then I also edit these layer properties also. Then I add another raster layer. On this one I add my blog address information in a smaller size. To simply add one to an image. Choose your font. I usually always work my text in vector mode and usually always use gray as the color. After I get the text added I reduce the layer properties and then drop a shadow. To make the copyright symbol you simply hold down your cntrl button and using your number type pad type in 0169. Not all fonts supply the copyright symbol. I usually do mine in Arial. I hope this makes sense and helps.

P.S. This should work in PS or any photo editor...I would think!!:-))

oh dear, I don't even want to think about Christmas yet. We are so so broke right now.

Marly I came down here to leave this comment because I have a tag for you.

The 37 questions tag.

No pressure at all to do this. But, it was fun and easier than it looks after you get going.

Hey at the very least you got a little linky love!:-)
