I know exactly what I want but I cannot draw so I was wondering if there is a program or software that helps edit images so they can be used for business cards and website.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you

Has any one ever used any of the logo designers on eBay? Or any other company?
I have a logo design already that I designed on my paint program which included a lot of coping and pasting, but I don't know how to make it work for business cards and a website and stuff like that.

Vistaprint said the image did not have a high resolution, so I am stuck.....

for printed reproduction:

1) must be a JPG or a TIFF -- never a GIF

2) depending upon type of art to begin:

if color -- minimum of 160dpi - better 300dpi
if B/W line art - then try to get to 600 dpi

How do you get it a higher resolution?

depends upon software.

usually under a menu that has items on it for image control.

I use Paint Shop Pro and it's pretty good for editing images. You can adjust the resolution for the best print quality. Here's a couple of things that I have done with it:

I used to use it to make glittery pictures too, back in the day before they had all the glittery word generators.
It helps to make a blank image the size that you need (for website, etc...) and then fil it in with the details that you want.

There's a free photo editing software that's not bad either, called

We use an older version (22) of Printshop Prothat was bought off Ebay for $23.
It has graphics,banners, image importation ,text and freehand capabilities. We
first make a copy to paper,switch printhead and ink tanks for the cake sheet
when satisfied with design. Using Canon MX700 with refillable edible ink tanks
and spare print head bought off Ebay individually for less than $200.

Hi veronica720,

Send me a Private message with your image, I can fix it for you at work. I am a graphic designer from 9-5pm. If I get a moment I can quickly fix it for you.
Monday its going to be a slow day for me.
Just send it my way.
