I used :

Size : 80 Pixels (This size will depend on the length of your name)
Background Color : (I used a variety of colors, you are welcome to do so as well, or make them all one color. I will post the 3 different color codes I used incase you would like to do the same.)
Color #1 - #ec4d00
Color #2 - #330d4d
Color #3 - #7fdb1d

Foreground Color - set to nul

In order to change the color of your letters easier, type out the name you wish to use, then highlight each letter & change the color accordingly. Atleast that is the easiest way I have figured out to do lol

Once you have your colors the way you want it , click apply , then position your name to your liking. Once happy with placement go to your layers pallet - right click on your name layer then click Convert To Raster Layer.

Then go to Effects - click Plugins - Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow

Now you will need to add any copyright/credit information & license #. (Very important not to miss this step.)

Once you have everything added that you would like, activate your crop tool -
Crop off any canvas that you did not use. Be careful not to crop to closely as you don't want to crop off any elements or parts of their drop shadow.
