Click Ok.


Now apply a drop shadow to your name. I used the same settings that I used for my elements.

Go to your layers pallet - right click on any layer then click Merge - then click Merge Visible.


Now activate your Crop tool & crop off any canvas that you did not use.


Once you have cropped your tag, you may want to re-size it depending on where you will be using it.
