Thanks Steve...Nice tutorial on setting up the background. Unfortunately, I don't have Photo-shop. Can you recommend any free online tools that would be helpful to make the background?

All - Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments.  I appreciate them!

John- I don't think you're going to find anything free that will have guides or help lines, but you might try looking into Adobe Photoshop Elements which can be had for much less then Photoshop CS4.  You will have to Google it and research the specifics to verify if it will do what you want it to. 

Having said that, your Twitter page looks good.  The dims on your photo are 2048x1280 whereas I am using a much smaller 1420 x 670 canvass.  I took your photo into Photoshop and re-sized it to 1420x670 and put it at for you. 

You can go to that URL, and get the re-sized version, and upload it to twitter to see how it looks.  The print will be a bit small, but I think if you just play with what you started with - and use a smaller canvas (1420x670), I think you will produce a nice result without having to buy new software.  Let me know how it goes.

Thanks for the video. I got started using GIMP, and should have a new background ready soon.
