You can either use my settings below or your own.


Now click Ok.
Then apply a drop shadow to your name.
Once you have done that, click your Magic Wand tool.
Now click inside each letter of your name. (You may only have to click the first letter  and it will select all the letters, this depends on the font you used and if the letters are all connected.)
Once all letters are selected go to Effects, click 3D Effects and then click Inner Bevel. Again you can use my settings below, or use your own.
Click Ok.
Then go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then click Add Noise, set to Uniform, 30 and make sure your Monochrome box IS checked then click Ok.
Now go to Selections and click Select None.

Now add any & all copyright & credit information.

Once you have everything added and positioned the way you want it, go to your layers pallet and right click on any layer and then click Merge, then from the slide out menu click Merge Visible.

Now activate your crop tool and crop off any access canvas that we did not use.

Now you may want to re-size your tag, so go to Image and click Re-size - My settings below are just my personal preference, but it will give you a general idea of what to do.

Now go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.

All thats left is to save your tag as PNG & your DONE!!
