Down at the secret chamber............
Anyway, I'm attempted to make an icon from a photo. It's not a particularly good quality photo, as it came off the webcam, but I fixed it up as best as I could. I'm trying to add text, but it's hard to get it to show up against the skin in the photo. I was initially trying to use a darker pink color, which complements the border and the subject matter (pro-nursing).
I can't figure out how to get shading, which I think would help. I REALLY don't want to put the text against a colored box, because it would detract from the picture. Is this something that's just not available on Picture it? Is there anything else I could do to the text to make it stand out more? I was attempting to use Comic Sans MS, which looked like it showed up best given the size. I can't get any smaller than 8 points. I've already adjusted the pic to 100 X 100.
Anyway, I appreciate any help with this. I've looked in the Help section of Picture it, and I've also read a lot of the tutorials and the FAQ linked to the profile page. (I will fully admit that most of it - even after reading the FAQ - is WAAAAY over my head at this point).
Thanks so much in advance!
EDIT: Thanks for your help! I'm pretty pleased with the icon, and I even made it into a button. I thought I'd add it here to show how it came out. I don't think it's too bad for my first try.

I use PSP 9. Hope it's easy to translate...

I'm making this in PSP8 (should be easily translatable) and dial up users should be a little wary since I have quite a few (30 or so 100x100 images) pics in this tutorial. =]
The tutorial's over at my icon journal, iconetra However, here's a quick link http://iconetra.livejournal.com/1590.htm

I realise this sounds very vague, but the best way I can describe it is to compare it to an Icon I made, such as :
I can make the text follow a path, I need to know if its possible to get it to warp in the way the first icon did, see how its not all one size? [it warps and gets larger in the middle?] say if I wanted to make my text follow a path to the right of my Icon and I wanted it to gradually get larger as it came round - [I've tried making each letter a size bigger, but it doesn't look the same, infact it looks terrible]
I know how little sense this makes, but hopefully it'll make sense to someone who can give me a helping hand.
I use PS5, and I was wondering how you would make a rounded border in there. I've checked the memories, but they refer to a rounded rectangular marquee tool, which I am pretty sure I don't have.
I tried increasing the feather of my rectangular marquee tool, and that made it round, but then when I try to use my paintbucket, pencil, or paintbrush on it, it doesn't make a clean border, since it's, well, feathering, for lack of a better term. XD
My apologies if this has been posted before, (which it most likely has), I tried to check the memories as thoroughly as possible.
