Hi all - I just got ink for my edible image printer (that has been sitting in the closet, never used for 5 years icon_wink.gif Does anyone have any pointers as far as what you use for templates? I am simply trying to come up with an example template that shows a sugar cookie with a baby Einstein picture on it and then add the text Happy Birthday, Grace (my intentions are not to make it for money - so please, no infringement lectures icon_wink.gif And I am getting no where. What software should I use and how.
Thanks!

Do you have any software that you use for creating cards crafts such as print master or american greetings? If so you can use one of them to make a template. For example I could go in and make a circle and make it hollow and then you can add anything that you want into the center. Most of the programs allow you to edit the photo that you import and make it into a circle. I hope that I am making myself clear. HTH

So the Print Master one looks awesome - it's on sale for 29.00 - so would this also be useful if I wanted to make cute goodie bag labels and gift tags or the cupcake toppers on a tooth pick? I just saw all these awesome "party pack" printables for theme parties and would love to be able to make them to coordinate with my cakes. It looks as though I missed the whole "digital scrapbooking" movement - lol!

I know not everyone has MS Office, but I use Powerpoint ALL the time for my edible images. The default slide size is just right to miss the backing edges. I can manipulate the graphics pretty well too. Microsoft even has a great clip art site if you don't have exactly the image you are looking for!
