Before Cut

2. Adding Text
Click on the text tool Click the image to open in full size. and choose your font, text size and color. Once you have chose everything, click in the middle of the canvas and type whatever you want your siggie/avvie to say. I'll use a siggie since it's simpler.

Click the image to open in full size. and set the tolerance level to 100% Click the image to open in full size.. Click the canvas and copy it by pressing CTRL + C on your keyboard.
