Here’s some quick advice – have some fun with your computer imaging software.
Being a “professional” graphic artist my software of choice is Adobe Photoshop but there are lower octane versions of software that can do many of the same things. A lot of this software is free and/or preloaded on your computer.
With all of the social networking going on and the ease of posting and sending images why not consider having a little fun. It’s easy to manipulate and combine images quickly and easily. Just remember – MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO USE THE IMAGES or that they are within public domain. It’s real easy getting images to use, but that doesn’t mean you have a legal right to use them. Even posting for personal use can be considered copyright infringement.
