8 more icons

As a Photoshop-less kind of person, I usually make my icons with Paint and/or PowerPoint and/or Picture Manager. So I took the original dreamsheep!icon made by [personal profile] helens78 and the Dreamwidth logo from the wiki, and reworked them. They are all shareable, and if anybody wants the base in *.ppt I can share it too.

Two Dreamwidth icons -- because I like DW pink very much
Two miscellaneous icons -- morse code
Two location_flag icons -- Mexico, both
Two fandom icons -- Star Trek Spock, I'm not sure about the ears

Nice. Like the Spock sheep.

But I noticed you said you're using Paint because you don't have anything better. And I remember those days. Those were the days before I got Paint.net and Inkscape. And, actually, there's also GIMP. All of which are free.

Inkscape does wonders with text, once you get used to the interface. It can get the text to follow just about any path you care to draw, put in color gradients, and so much more.

The other two are Photoshop replacements. I use Paint.net, and it's way better than Corel's Paint Shop Pro (which I stupidly bought before I heard of PDN). And I've got a friend who's been very happy with GIMP. GIMP even does animated images, which I've been doing manually with Unfreez (also free).

All of which is to say that, while you clearly are getting along, there are some good free options out there.
