Using the same settings so just click Ok.

Please double check to make sure you have added your copyright/license info.

Once that is done - and you are happy with everything - go to your layers pallet - right click on any layer - then click Merge - then click Merge Visible from the slide out menu.

Once you have Merged all layers - you may or may not want to re-size your tag. This depends on where you will be using your tag & what size restrictions that particular website has.

If you choose to re-size your tag - before to Sharpen your tag one final time. (Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen)
It just keeps it looking crisp :-)
I find it to be a bit blurry once you re-size the completed tag.

Once you have your tag re-sized & Sharpened all that is left to do is to save your tag as a PNG file & you have completed this tutorial!! ♥

**If you try any of my tutorials, please send me a copy of the tag you made using the tutorial so that I can display it on my blog :-)   **
