A very nice fresh almost ultra modern logo I myself would like to see on
my T-shirt (and I am very picky as to my T-shirts, just to mention,
willing not to wear just anything -- especially not on a dressy evening
occasions), or as a badge or whatever a logo could appear on.
There is a certain problem though, I am afraid... I know how to make a
picture, indeed, but axis this and axis that I have not a slight idea
Is there perhaps some manual for this?
I work in Gimp, if that is of significance.
~~~ For personal mail please use my address as it is *exactly* given
in my "From" field, otherwise it will not reach me. ~~~
