gorgeous set of our favorite speedster! Category is just so funny (he can be so clumsy and chaotic XD), and I take it OTP is Barry and Caitlin, right? You chose a perfect pic for them two.

May I ask what program you use? I can't help but notice that the ratio (thanks btw for teaching me the right term) is still off in some of them. I gladly help out, if I can.

Thank you. Lol he can. Oh it's Barry and Kara. Though Barry and Caitlin is my first favorite OTP, I kind of got two. It was hard to decide between the two to be honest. I should probably state that.

I've been using the IrfanView, but yeah I have noticed that as well. It's been better then my PhotoFiltre 7. Any help would be great. I also have Adobe Photoshop CS6, but slowly learning how to use that.

Ah, I couldn't exactly tell it from the icon, but these two are also absolutely adorable together!

As for the software: I recommend Google Picasa. While it has it flaws (as it does catalogue every single pic on your computer, which is pretty nerving, since you can't stop it), it comes with an assortment of prefixed cutting features. One of them is "CD-Cover", and if you look at my icons, I always get a perfect ratio thanks to that.

Another software I can recommend is paint.net. You not only have a free alternative to Photoshop (though not to its extent), once you get the drift of how to work with it, it's a walk in the park to make icons (or other graphics) with it.

If you need any help with either of these two, just holler (aka send me a PM)!

Yeah. I just love the chemistry of those two, just right off the bat. No worries. Wasn't the best picture I choose, but loved that moment when they met again.

Thank you for the recommendation, always willing to try new ones to get better at ratio and other problems I may have with my icons. Oh that sounds interesting. It is saying on one site that Picasa is now retired. Is it a free download?

Free is always good for programs. When I type in paint.net I get: http://www.warrenpaint.com/index.html instead. Did it disappear?

Thank you, will keep that in mind if I ever get stuck on those. Again thanks for the help and suggestions. :)

It is saying on one site that Picasa is now retired.

That's what you get when you have it installed and don't pay attention to any news related to it *headdesk* But from what I gathered in a quick Google Search, you should still be able to download it and work with it. There just won't be any software updates (since they want to promote their new app Google Photos, which I have no idea about it; it's on my phone, but I never use it)

Is it a free download?

Always was. Here are two English links:


As for Paint.Net


That's the official page for it, so it's safe to download it from there. Another hint: type in "paint net plugins" and you can get even more effects to work with. You might find some links that doesn't work anymore, but the majority is still available and ready to work.

Lol, no worries. I don't really pay attention to news of programs I have either.

Thank you I'll try them out. Anything to help with my ratio problem since I have not figured out Adobe Photoshop CS6 yet.

Ah Paint.Net sort of reminds of a program I already have called PhotoFiltre 7. But I will give it a try since I downloaded it. Can this do good text effects? Like bendy and rotated text? I so need a good program that could do those effects that are easy to do.

I honestly don't know if it can do it, since I always use the desktop version of Pixlr when I need a text on an icon. But I can't make that effects there either. I will keep looking, maybe I find a better one ;)
