Hey Guys, I made a template for profile pictures in general. This one i have made with a Google + theme since it is the biggest thing these days.

This Template is made using "Paint.net", for those of you that don't know what that is, Think Photoshop but a freeware. I will make a Photoshop compatible version later.

Learn More About Paint.Net
Download Paint.NET

I have attached some samples.

I will update this to allow changing of placement of the Google+ icon and Photoshop support later in the future, if you guys want it. (DONE)

Follow me on Twitter or Google + to get up-to-date on when i update this or you can send me suggestions.

And if you guys wish to help me even further you can get these apps from the Android Market
They are made by my Dad and me.
