Hi there, today I'm going to be explaining how to make a Texture Pack and how to increase the resolution on it.

Before we talk about the way to make the pack, you will need a File Managing software.
Here are links to 2 very well known and very good softwares.
WinRAR (Free for 40 days)
7ZIP (Free)

These will allow you to open .jar files and will help when exporting your texture pack onto websites.

Another thing we need before we start is a painting software, which allows transparency, Regular Paint will not work because it does not allow transparency.
Here are 3 softwares that I would recommend to you:
Paint.NET (Free)
GIMP (Free)
Adobe Photoshop (Costs money but you may have had it pre-installed on your computer like me :))

Now you've got one of those downloaded, play around with it for a bit to familiarise yourself with the layout and different drawing tools.

Let's get this party started! WOO!!! To much? Sorry.

There's a spelling mistake.When you typed in the WinRar trial,you typed 40 instead of infinite.

It is free for 40 days, then they start pestering you asking you to pay every time you open an archive

Yeah,but most programs with a trial wouldn't let you use it or open it.
