Then go to your layers pallet & move your Sparkles layer down so it is directly below both of your tube layers. (You want the sparkles element to be visible on the sides of your tube)

Now lets add a name to our tag :

Activate your Text tool, set your Font, Size & Color.
The font I used is :
Sick Capital Vice
Size : 85 Pixels
Color : #000000 (Black)

Then click apply. Now position your name where you would like it on your tag.
Once you are happy with placement, go to Effects, click Plugins, then click your Eye Candy 5- Impact - Gradient Glow.
(You can either use my settings or your own. Please note that the Glow Radius setting is different than the settings we used for outlining parts of the template.) Also the color that I used for the glow is different as well.
The 1st color is set to #ffffff (White)
The 2nd color is set to #47fdb1


Click Ok.
Now apply a drop shadow to your name.
Same settings as before.

Now apply your copyright & credit information.
The font I used for that is :
Pixelette
Size : 13 Pixels
Color : #000000 (Black)
I also apply a gradient glow to my copyright info so that it sticks out more so that it remains readable at all times. (Don't forget to include your license # for your tube :-)

Now once you have all your elements & text in place, go to your layers pallet, right click on any layer & then click Merge, then from the slide out menu click Merge Visible.

Now activate your crop tool, then crop off any access canvas that you did not use. Being careful not to crop to closely to your template, elements or text. If you do make a mistake just click your undo button until you are back to where you where before you began cropping ,then try it again.

Once your tag is cropped you may want to re-size your tag to your desired size. This all depends on the size you are allowed to use either in your forums or groups.
Now that your tag has been cropped & re-sized you will want to sharpen it one last time. Go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.

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