Default | How to Make a Word Avvie Using MS Paint & GIMP |

So here's a simple guide showing you how to make an avvie (or siggie) like this one::
Click the image to open in full size.

So first, open up MS Paint. (every computer comes with this) and pull up a new blank template.
Make the size about the size that an avvie would be. The size that I use is 190 x 176px, but anything small enough is fine.
Save that empty page as "Template" or something like that.

Then, open up GIMP, and click on File at the top, then press Open and open up the template that you just created in Paint.

Choose the color that you want your background to be and then click on the Bucket Fill Tool. It looks like this:
Click the image to open in full size.
Then click anywhere on your white template, and the white area will turn into the color you're using, in my case, it's green:
Click the image to open in full size.

Your drawing should now look as mine does above.
Next you need to click on the Text Tool. It looks like this:
Click the image to open in full size.
Choose what text you want to use and pick a size that's big enough to take up alot of space on the colored area so that it's not to small.
(The size of your text will depend on the font/amount of letters your using.)
Once you choose your text size, click somewhere on your colored space and type in the word(s) that you want to use. Then move the text around so that it's in the middle.
It should look something like this now:
Click the image to open in full size.
You can leave your new avvie like that, save it and be done, or you can rotate the text around a little.
To do that, click on the Rotate Tool, which looks like this:
Click the image to open in full size.
Click somewhere on your text and a box will come up that looks like this:
Click the image to open in full size.
Move around the little box on a line in the middle until the text is where you want it to be and click the Rotate button to officially rotate the text.

You can now move the text anywhere you want so it looks good, and your final product should be something like this:
Click the image to open in full size.

Congratulations! You just made a Word Avvie! Save your image as a PNG and post it on here!
Hope this helps some of you!(:
