Frame template for blog pictures...

Have ya seen ppl post their pics with a frame and wondered 'How did they do that'? Well I just learned how to do that and I want to share it with ya'll.. Ready? Fire up ur Gimp.. Open up a new file with transparent background..Cowgirl's pic is 350 x 350 pixels.  Make ur file the size you want ur pic to be..Now open the frame you want to use , copy and paste it into the new file.. Make sure the frame fills the edges of the file..I like to sharpen it up a bit. Now make this layer transparent by clicking on Layer, Transparency, Add to Selection..Rename it...Now save it as a .png on ur computer..(I named mine blog frame.png )  You have just made a template..Now when you want to use it, go to Gimp, open it up, copy and paste it, add ur picture behind the frame, then you can add some text or not..Save it, rename it as a .png, to ur computer...Now you have it all ready to post on ur blog...Easy, yes? Hope so.. Let me know if this worked for you too..I'm excited to see ur frames..and ur new blog posts..hehe... Happy Gimp Scrappin'...
