Hey thanks!

If you wouldn't mind telling me how you got the logo on the background I'd appreciate it. :)

Hi. I had a look at your stuff and came up with the following.
I used the The Gimp. If you don't have it, you can download the latest version from:
http://www.gimp.org/
Instructions on exactly what I did, to follow. Just have to figure it out first:)

Opened the two files in the gimp.
[File]
[Open]

Zoomed in on logo.
Used ellipse select tool to select circle part of logo.
Once I had the circle thing selected used [ctrl] + [x] to cut.
Then clicked on backround and used [ctrl] + [v] to paste the circle thing on the background. Then positioned it.

For the writing I used the fuzzy select tool. Clicked on black letter, then changed mode to add and clicked on the next letter, repeated processes until all selected.
Then cut and paste as described above.
Positioned the text.

[File]
[Save]

With a little playing, can get better results. But this is the easiest way I can think to do this.

I chose the Gimp, as it is opensource and easily available.

It is not the easiest programme to learn to use, but worth playing with as it is truelly a powerful application:)

Good luck.

Inkscape is a free vector editor that can handle bitmaps. http://www.inkscape.org

I used it to make an svg of this thing. I had made a vector copy of the backgound gradient/highlight and border image, but I closed out and forgot to save it, so I just put in the image instead.
