    I like the Cordy one. My only thought is that your images are sometimes coming out too stretched or too smooshed. Maybe find a tutorial about how to resize things in gimp?

    They are great!! I can not get GIMP to work for me at all. I think it is plotting against me.
     
    Chosen Enemy: LOL at plotting against you
