Once you have your name the way you would like it. Go to your layers pallet, right click on your name layer and click Convert To Raster Layer.

Go to Effects, click Plug-ins, then find your Eye Candy 4, then click on Gradient Glow, and you can either apply the settings like I have below or you can make your own gradient glow effect that you like. The choice is totally yours :-)

Basic Tab Settings :


Color Tag Settings :


Now in your layers pallet, make sure you on your name layer (click your name layer if you are not on it), then activate your Magic Wand tool, and click inside EACH letter in the name that you used for your tag.
Once all letters are selected go to Effects, click 3D Effects, then click Inner Bevel, you can use my settings below or you can set your own Inner Bevel Settings, then choice is yours.

My Inner Bevel Settings :

(Yours will show you the preview on top but I cropped mine off so that it wouldn't take up as much room, so just wanted to let you know that you aren't missing any settings on the top :-)



Now to deselect your letters you can either use your Ctrl & D keys on your keyboard, or you can go to Selections and click Select None.

Making sure you name layer is still activated in your layers pallet, go to Effects, click 3D Effects and then click Drop Shadow.

Now make sure that you also add any and ALL copyright & credit information to your tag!
Once you have everything added that you would like to add & that you NEED to add :-) you will want to merge your layers, so right click on any layer in your layers pallet, then click Merge, then click Merge Visible.

Once your layers are Merged you will want to Crop your tag, so get your group tool out and crop off any of the unused canvas. Make sure not to get to close to your design. If you do , DO NOT PANIC lol, just hit your undo button and try it again :-)
 Now you may or may not want to re-size your tag it all depends on where you are going to be using it and your own personal preference. But if you would like to re-size your tag, you can do this one of two ways, you can use your "Shift & S" keys on your keyboard and your re-size menu will pop up, OR you can go to Image, then click Re-size :-) Either way will bring up your re-size menu. Set it to your liking, then click Ok.

Now I always like to sharpen my completed tag. So I go to Adjust, then click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.

Now save it as a PNG!!!

Congrats! You have finished the tutorial!
As always I would LOVE to see and display anything that you make using any of my tutorials, so please make sure you email me and include the design you made from my tutorial.
