I Come Seeking Techinical Help.  
Ok so arriving late to the party as usual, I've been attempting my own little banners for some of the fics I'm writing.  Thanks to a tip over at J2 newbies I've used picnik, and it's been great, my only problem is I'm a techno phobe. When I save my banner it's an ideal size for my journal but when I come to upload it it seems to have shrunk and I have to stretch the banner and it affects the image a little.  Does this normally happen or am I missing a step or something?

All advice gratefully received, cuddled, and puzzled over.

Are you uploading it to LJ? if so you may need to use LJ scrapbook to upload it then use the direct link.

Scrapbook is on your LJ homepage.

If you want another good program Gimp is a program comparable to Photoshop... but free.

Thank you, I'll try that, like I said techno phobe, I'm still figuring out how to use LJ, and I've been here two years!

Thanks for the tip on the program as well.
