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

Now if needed you can crop off any access canvas around your tag that you did not use. Be careful not to crop to closely to your elements, papers, name & copyright info.

Now you may or may not need to re-size your completed tag - this all depends on where you will be using your tag and what that websites current size guidelines are. So re-size according to what you will need.  (Remember that your copyright/license information must remain readable at ALL times)

Once you have re-sized your tag - be sure to apply one final Sharpen. 

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