For those of you with Adobe Photoshop...

Here is what I did to make my photo bar: Use Adobe Photoshop

Start by opening up 3-5 pics that you want to use for your bar.

Go to FILE>NEW and in the window that pops up, change the height to 75, and make the length whatever size you think you might need. (If you make it too big, you can crop it later.)

Highlight (or click on) the pic that you want first on your bar. Crop down any unwanted parts of the pic. Now, go to IMAGE>IMAGE SIZE. In the window that opens, change the height of your pic in PIXEL DIMENTIONS to 75.

Go to SELECT>ALL and that will highlight your whole pic. Next, go to EDIT>COPY. Then, click on the bar that you made earlier. Then, go to EDIT>PASTE. The pic will show up in the midde of your bar. To move it to where you want it, click on the first square on the top right side of the tool bar that has the arrow in it. That will allow you to move the pic.

Repeat this procedure with all of you pics. When you have all of your pics on the bar, and you are ready to save it, go to LAYER>FLATTEN IMAGE. This makes all the pics flatten onto your bar. Next, save your bar, then upload to a free pic hosting service. After it is uploaded, click on PROPERTIES to get the location of the pic. Copy the http// location. Last, paste that location into your sig line.

HTH!!!!

Thank you so much Kikipea --- I always admire the little sig bars. Whenever I put a link in my Profile it never worked ... it just had http:// .... insterad of actually bringing in my pic which was a generic one I got off the net. Anyway I will try my hand at making my own and give it a shot.
Thanks,
Michelle

Creative Quilling ... photoshop works with Layers and each time you paste something it automatically creates a new layer. If you use the pointer and drag the image you should be able to move it. You can switch on and off the layers to see all the different ones by selecting "show layers" from one of the tabs up the top menus of the program. I think it is the 2nd or 3rd menu from the right ... sorry just dont have the program open at the moment to check

Kiki...do you know if this can be done in another program. We have Microsoft Photo Editor...maybe that one? or MS Power Point? I really want a photo bar and dh does not want Adobe Photoshop on the computer...he thinks that it uses to many resources on the hard drive.

I don't have adobe photoshop but this thread made me want one bad enough to figure out how to do it in paint If anyone else is as software deprived as I, just resize your photos to identical heights, paste them into paint, drag with the mouse to line them up, trim it and save!

Thanks Kiki for the motivation
