The font I use for my copyright/credit info is Pixelette

Now once happy with all elements & wording on your tag, 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.

Then you may or may not need to re-size your tag. Depending on where you will be using it.
If you re-size your completed tag, make sure that you apply one more Sharpen.

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