This will be on Paint.NET, Photofiltre and MS Paint

Paint.NET

Step One
Click on "Image"
then click on "Canvas Size"
(or, Ctrl + Shift + R)
Click the image to open in full size.

Step Two

Now you can re-size it

(BTW, I know this isn't 1000 x 200 pixels in the picture bellow)

Click the image to open in full size.


PhotoFiltre

Step One

As soon as you click on this symbol Click the image to open in full size.
you can ajust the size

Paint.NET

This one's a little tricky, but hang in there!

Step One

Click on 'Image'
Click on 'Resize and Skew'
Resize it to 500 x 200
Open up another MS paint and do the same.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step Two

Now, paste your background onto both and make sure it covers the entire surface.
This won't be permanent, its just so you can merge the two together.

Step Three

Now, make the first one (paint) about 2 times bigger than the background/shape.
Copy and Paster the second one (paint) onto the first one and then, resize the canvas so it fits.

Step Four

Just to make sure its 1000 x 200, save your image, and in your documents, put your mouse over it. Check the dimensions and make sure it's 1000 x 200

Once your sure its 1000 x 200, you can delete your background, and start.


I hope this helps!
Tell me if you need any help, need help on another program or want me to explain a step in greater detail i'm willing to help!

I think we should be allowed to post on here now considering it isn't closed.
My question is: In your opinion, which filetype is better to save your picture as?
If my question doesn't follow the rules, please tell me.
Thanks BI Staff for having this wonderful contest!

i find PNG or JPG/JPEG best.
on paint.NET, don't save it as PND (or whatever) because you cannot upload those onto tinypic and i believe photobucket also.

Hello there Savanah!

I prefer .PNG for everything! This is GREAT for transparent (But BI staff members don't recommend it ) or if you would like anything clear and sharp. Do NOT save your image as a .PDN (on Paint.Net) as it does not show up. You probably won't want to save it as a .GIF since nothing animated or glittery is allowed. So probably .PNG

Hope this helps!

what program are you using?

ok, so when you go to your pictures, you just put your mouse over your image, it will say "Dimensions: 00 x 00" (for example)
