Background Color : I used 2 different colors , they are as follows
#0c6cd8
#000000
Foreground Color : Set to nul

Now click on your canvas to open your text box, then type out your name,then  while your text box is still open, highlight your first letter, open your color pallet, type in the color code # you wish to use. Then, highlight the next letter, then open your color pallet, type in the color code # you wish to use, continue to do this until you have your name the way you want it.

Once you are happy, click Apply. Now position your name to your liking.

Then go to your layers pallet  - right click on your name layer & click Convert To Raster Layer.
Then go to Effects - Plugins - Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow
Click Ok , then apply a drop shadow.

Then you will need to add your copyright/credit information along with your license #. Its very important not to forget this step.

Once you have everything added, 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 access canvas that you did not use. (If you don't have any to crop off that is fine too.)

Then you may need to re-size your tag depending on where you are going to be using it .

Once I re-size my tag I like to apply one final sharpen. If you would like to do that as well you should do that now.

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