You need an image editing program. I used Jasc PSP7 to make the scarf KAL button.

Most or all computers have at least some kind of image editing program. The most common would be MS Paint. You can open an image with the program and using a text tool add text to the image. Or whatever else you wanted to do.

ok, so i either draw the picture with paint, or find a picture and add the text to it?

if so, how do i resize it afterwards?

My vote is for the second one as well.
