    Barcode with Photoshop or GIMP


    Hi!

    I need to design some labels with barcode. Unfortunately I have no idea how to make one with Photoshop or GIMP (or any other way)?

    Thanks,
    martin

    Try looking at http://freefonts.com too. I hope that this site is still working.

    use single column marquee tool

    click it a few times (make sure u have "add to selection" selected), dont be precise, and leave like 3 to 8 pixels between each selection,

    press D,
    press ALT+D

    duplicate the layer,
    move it to the left / right till you get a good view of a bar code

    if not succeeded duplicate and move it again (so you have 1 original and 2 duplicates) or try leaving more/less space between each selection
