Then go back to the layers pallet and right click on your duplicated Element 39 layer, click Duplicate again and position it on your tag where you desire.
Continue to follow that step until you have as many as you would like.

Now is time to add your name, copyright & credit information.
Once you have your name add, make sure you apply a drop shadow as it makes the name pop out more.

Then once everything is the way you want it to me, go to your layers pallet and right click on any layer, then click Merge, then on the slide out menu click Merge Visible.
Now activate your crop tool, and crop off any access canvas that we did not use.Be careful not to crop to close to your tag as you don't want to remove any of your tag , name or copyright/credit information.

Once you have your tag cropped, go to Image and click Re-size, now you want to re-size your tag in the Pixels setting, so where you had it to "Percent" earlier, change that to Pixels. Then type in your desired size.
Also make sure that before you click ok you have checked "Resize All Layers". Then click Ok.
Once re-sized I like to sharpen my final tag, so if you would like to do that go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.

Now save your tag as PNG!
