            basically you need to make a powerpoint slide and add images and text boxes to it then select all and group and save as a jpg.

            are you familiar with powerpoint?

            or you could go the lumapix route that is discussed here...

                upload it to the BDW photobucket account, then click on it and 'resize' - chose the forum size option, then copy the IMG code and paste into your signature

                      Photo Editing Software - LumaPix :: FotoFusion

                      I suggest downloading the free trial of lumapix. Design your collage & then convert it to a jpg file. It will be watermarked with a lumapix sign, but that really doesn't matter for a siggy pic. The watermark is there if you do not purchase the program.

                      You can adjust the resolution when you are converting it to a jpg file. If you make it low resolution your watermark will be smaller. Low resolution looks fine on a computer screen.

                      If you love the program, buy the $40 essentials version. You can always upgrade later by paying the difference if you really get hooked. I use it all the time, but I haven't upgraded past the cheapest version. It really can do a lot.
