I used to use Paint Shop Pro a long time ago to make my own 100x100 icons for myspace n' online journal
but that was years ago and I am now interested in making them again and haven't a clue what people
are using now? I need a progam I can download, I can use my own pictures on n' apply text on the
icons n' one that won't make the pictures blurry once resized.
Any suggestions?
Thank You

Are you sure you mean icons?
Icons are .ico files usually 16x16,32x32,or 48x48.

100x100 sounds like .gif or .jpg or .png.

...which would be used for an avatar perhaps?
See the BC compendium of Recommended Freeware for graphics freeware. There are a few which would probably suit, try irfanview or dogwaffle for example.

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
Windows XP Home SP2, Trend Micro Internet Security, Firefox, Thunderbird, AdAwareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, A-squared Free, Ewido Security Suite.

medab1 if I put "avatar" I wasn't sure if people would know what I
meant. So I put icon. I didn't realize an "icon" was actually specific sizes.
Thank You
