Then if you need to you can crop off any access canvas around your tag that you did not use.

If you would like you can re-size your tag if needed. This all depends on where you will be using it and what the size guidelines are for that particular website.

If you do re-size your tag - be sure to apply one final Sharpen . (Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen)
This helps it stay crisp looking. I feel if I re-size something it then appears blurry so I always Sharpen when I re-size something smaller :-)

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