{Tutorial} Creating A Sales Page Image With Your Logo

This is Image I am creating with G.I.M.P. Link to Gimp

I use this Image to Create my Sales Page Image and Then resize the Image for my catalog image.
If you do not want a logo with your image please take the time to read the tutorial to avoid the
Flow of unnecessary questions.

There is the way I create my sales page image and and catalog icons. If you use a different way
You can post your tut here. I will probably not make another tut on this subject.



STEP 1:
IS TO CREATE A NEW IMAGE
SELECT FILE IN THE GIMP MENU
SELECT NEW

STEP2:
IS TO SELECT THE SIZE OF YOUR IMAGE
I CREATE THE IMAGE IN MY CATALOG SIZE FIRST
WHY? TO GUARANTEE THAT WHEN I RESIZE THE IMAGE ON THE LAST STEP
OF THIS PROCESS IT WILL BE MY CATALOG SIZE.100X80
NO OTHER SIZE WILL BE ACCEPTED WHEN SUBMITING YOUR CATALOG ICON.

STEP 3:
IS TO RESIZE YOUR IMAGE TO CREATE YOUR PRODUCT LOGO IMAGE.
FROM YOUR IMAGE MENU SELECT THE IMAGE TAB
SELECT SCALE IMAGE

I LIKE A BIG IMAGE TO WORK WITH
BECAUSE MY LOGO AND CATALOG PICS START WITH A LARGE CREATED IMAGE OF
MY PRODUCT. MY SIZE WILL BE 800X DOESN‘T MATTER TO ME.
AS LONG AS I KEEP MY WIDTH AT 800.

STEP 4:
NOW AS YOU SEE THE SMALL IMAGE HAS FILLED THE IMAGE SCREEN
MAXIMIZE YOUR IMAGE SCREEN TO SEE THE AREA YOU ARE WORKING WITH

STEP 5
IS TO FILL THE AREA WITH YOU BACKGROUND COLOR
FIRST OPEN YOUR TOOLS TAB AND SELECT THE PAINT BUCKET TOOL
YOU WILL HAVE TO USE THE GIMP MENU IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE
THE COLOR WHICH WILL BE OPEN AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN IN YOUR TASK BAR.

AS YOU CAN SEE I SELECTED A BLACK BACKGROUND COLOR
STEP 6;
IS TO OPEN YOUR LOGO FROM YOU PICTURE FILES / OR WHERE EVER YOU HAVE IT.
FROM YOUR GIMP MENU SELECT THE FILE TAB
SELECT OPEN AS LAYERS
AND SELECT YOUR PICTURE FILE.

http://i37.tinypic.com/x2nihj.jpg
AS YOU CAN SEE MY LOGO IS STILL RATHER LARGE SO I AM GOING TO RESIZE IT
STEP 7:
IN YOUR IMAGE MENU SELECT THE LAYER TAB
SELECT THE SCALE LAYER FROM THE DROP DOWN
MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON THE LAYER TAB AND NOT THE IMAGE TAB.




MY LAYER SIZE IS 300 AND IS STILL TO LARGE SO I WILL CHANGE IT
YOU CAN PLAY TIL YOU FIND THE SIZE YOU LIKE
ONCE YOU HAVE THE SIZE ENTERER SELECT SCALE
IF IT NOT WHAT YOU WANT YOU CAN GO TO THE EDIT TAB AND UNDO
SCALE IMAGE UNTIL YOU HAVE THE SIZE YOU WISH.

STEP 8;
IS TO PLACE YOUR LOGO WHERE YOU WANT IT IN YOUR FINAL IMAGE
OPEN THE TOOLS TAB IN IMAGE MENU
SELECT THE 4 CROSSING ARROWS.
THIS IS THE MOVE TOOL
APPLY IT TO YOUR LAYER AND DRAG IT TO WHERE YOU WANT IT.

http://i35.tinypic.com/2d0x4jq.jpg


HERE YOU CAN SEE I PLACED IT IN THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CORNER OF MY IMAGE.

STEP 9;FOLLOW PIC ABOVE
IS TO ADD YOUR TEXT
FOR THIS I USE THE GIMP MENU TO SELECT
TEXT COLOR FIRST
TEXT STYLE
AND TEXT SIZE
A TEXT BOX WILL OPEN
http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii258/HotRod20Fan/catalogiconandsalespageimag319.jpg
AND HERE IS WHERE YOU TYPE
IF THE TEXT IS NOT THE RIGHT SIZE
TYPE ALL OF YOUR WORDS/ NAME
THEN GO TO THE
TEXT SIZE BOX IN GIMP MENU AND RE SIZE TIL YOU HAVE IT THE SIZE YOU WANT
IF THE TEXT IS NOT WHERE YOU WOULD LIKE IT TO BE
SELECT YOUR MOVE TOOL AND PLACE IT


{{{{{{{{{{VERY IMPORTANT IT TO SAVE THIS IMAGE AT THIS STEP.}}}}}}}}}
I SAVE 2 OR 3 OF THIS IMAGE AND RE NAME THE 1 2 3 WHY??? INCASE YOU ACCIDENTLY
SAVE THE IMAGE WITH A PRODUCT PASTED TO THE TEMPLATE.
YOU NOW HAVE A TEMPLATE TO ADD YOU PRODUCT PICS


AFTER YOU HAVE CREATED THIS IMAGE
YOU WOULD START YOUR NEXT CATALOG PRODUCT IMAGE FROM HERE

YAY!!!!!!!
:)
