Now activate your crop tool, crop off any access canvas that we did not use. Being careful not to crop to closely to your template, elements ,wordart or text. If you do make an error just click your Undo button until you are back to where you were before you started cropping.

Once your tag is cropped you will want to re-size your tag. This size will depend on what size you can use in your forums or groups.

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

Now all that is left is for you to save your completed tag as a PNG file & you have completed this tutorial!!
