My online Avatars


As my web presence has increased, I've begun to experiment with different avatars. I'm not entirely comfortable putting my "face" out there. I would much rather have my products represent who I am.

The above are a few of the avatars I've created with Picasa that represent RockCreekCreations and myself.

If you like the looks of these, they are easy to make using Picasa 3 free software. Select the photos you want to collage, click on collage, then choose the layout you would like. Create the collage, then add your text. If you need a specific sized avatar I use another free photo editing software program called Photo Plus 6.0.

It's amazing the resources and different looks you can use to represent yourself online!

I really like your avatars and cannot wait to try picasa 3. It sounds like what I need to pretty up my photos. Thanks again.

I tried Picasa 3 & was very disappointed.
Your avatars look great, though. Thanks for being a contact & supporter!
Best wishes

I use gimp myself, it's free and easy to use for me. ;)I would so love to get paint shop pro 8 someday though.

You did these in Picasa?? Wow!. I can't seem to figure out how to do this kind of thing in GIMP so must give it a try!
