Thanks Equill I got him in that way somehow but it took me forever to find paint to start working on him. I'll need more practice to figure out the connections on this. I was looking all over for it and finally clicked on something right.

I've done that before too! When you did "Save image as..." did it bring up a folder list for you to browse through, with a place to put the file name at the bottom? I have a folder on my hard drive just for WG, I had the computer save it there.

I like your Duh sign way better than mine. Something about the font you picked.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh You're the some one that beat me to it.
We were probably working on him it at the same time but it took me almost an hour of trial and error to get him done.

That wasn't a font.
I couldn't figure out how to make the box small enough to fit inside his sign or how to enlarge him to add a font to!
(Any suggestions for either) When I enlarged him it disabled the font mode. I hand did the letters myself. It's MY font.

Calliandra I'll go check it out and try again.

Your hand done letters look way better than mine. I don't know why the time between when I first posted and when I was able to post the duh sign both show an hour ago. It took me 45 minutes to make that duh sign. That was small and I had to keep starting over. What a pain in the rear. I enlarged it and was FINALLY able to do something with it. Trial and error for me too. I can't help you on what disabled your font tool or how come you couldn't make the box small enough to fit inside the sign. Mine worked for me. Don't let it bug you. You got the best sign up for milkweed.

Hey Calliandra! They're looking for "Here's Your Sign" signs in another thread. That's really good. It's practical too. I did one but I took a church sign then doctored it trying to make it look real. Mine didn't look too real. See if you can find that thread on those signs and stick yours in there. It's really good.

Thanks Equil! And I did think yours looked real--if WG had a HQ, that would be the sign out front. I liked the message font too, was that a standard font or a download?

I'm trying to figure out how to clean this smilie image up, since the picture pixelates when enlarged. Also it's weird but the image is crisp when I'm working with it in paint, but the saved image is fuzzier.

Here's a cleaned up 2x version if anyone wants to play with it:

And a cleaned up "sign" image:
