What photo editing software you use?

I want to know, what photo editing software you use. I've used both Photo Shop and Paint Shop Pro, but I have ended up to use Paint Shop. I've done almost all of my works with Jasc Paint Shop Pro, but now I have also to latest version; Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo x2, there is not much differences between those two.

I would like to make also some material for making your own blog backgrounds, headers and banners. And perhaps some tutorials, but I can do it only for Paint Shop, of course some of the tutorials would work with other photo editing software, but mainly my stuff would be for Paint Shop.

So is here anyone, who uses Paint Shop and wants to learn how to make own web design? Leave comments and answer to poll at sidebar.

Go and check new backgrounds and accessories.

How to add your own signature to your posts?

This is very simple way to add a personal touch to your blog. First make your signature with any photo editing software, I used PaintShopPro. For the image I used png format, so it's transparent.


And then upload it to your web host, I used Picasa Web Album, to get url address.

And then go to Settings > Formating > Post Template

And paste this code to that Post Template box:

<p><image class="centered"alt="post signature" src="Your image url" /></p>

And that's it!

How to change to 3 Column Minima

I promised to help you to change your blog to 3 column, I try to explain it now very simple, and sorry my bad English. This works best with Minima Template, like all my background designs. And the width is same, than I have used to design all my 3 column backgrounds.

And a very good news is, that if you do these little changes to your HTML-code, you don't have to reset your template, so you won't loose any content of your blog.

Please note: before you make any alterations to your Blogger template ALWAYS save a backup copy to your hard drive. You can do this by selecting the “Layout” option in Blogger, then the “Edit HTML” option, then “Download Full Template.”

Select first Blogger "Layout" option and then "Edit HTML."

1. Scroll down until you find #header-wrapper, change the width show with red (660 to 880):


<#header-wrapper { width:880px;
margin:0 auto 10px;
border:1px solid $bordercolor;
}>

2. Scroll down until you find /* Outer-Wrapper, and you will find this following code, where you should make the changes shown with red, (change the width, add margin, change float right, add the whole code for left-sidebar-wrapper) :

<#outer-wrapper { width: 880px;
margin:0 auto;
padding:10px;
text-align:$startSide;
font: $bodyfont;
}

#main-wrapper {
width: 410px;
float: $startSide;
margin-left: 20px;
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}

#sidebar-wrapper {
width: 220px;
float: right;
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}

#left-sidebar-wrapper {
width: 220px;
float: left;
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */ overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}

>

3. Scroll down down down until you find the following code (under /* Footer)(don't do anything to that code, just find it)


<div id='main-wrapper'>

4. Now copy the following code below shown red and paste it straight above the code you just found (yes, just above <div id='main-wrapper'>):

<div id='left-sidebar-wrapper'> <b:section class='sidebar' id='left-sidebar' preferred='yes'/> </div>

5. Now save your template and go into the Layout Editor.(Notice, the posts will be shown on left, until you add some gadgets to your new left sidebar).

6. Enjoy!
