Now apply a drop shadow to that word/name.

Now follow the same steps to finish out your phrase if you choose to use more than one word like I did. If you just want your name on the tag then you can move on, but if you want to use the phrase I used or one of your own, you must follow the same steps to complete all of the words. :-)

Once you have your name or phrase completed, 
Activate your text tool again & add your copyright/credit information.
Position where you want it.

Now if you have everything on your tag & where you want it, go to your layers pallet & right click on any layer.
Click Merge then on the slide out menu click Merge Visible.

Now activate your crop tool, then crop off any access canvas that we did not use. Being careful not to crop to close to your template, elements, or texts.
If you do make a mistake just click your undo button until you are back to where you were before you began to crop  your tag.

Once your tag is cropped you will want to re-size your tag. This size will depend on where you are going to be using your tag.

Now ones your tag is re-sized go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.

All that's left to do is to save your tag as PNG & you have completed this tutorial!!
