In this tutorial I thought I would show you some
tricks with your text tool.. using seamless tiles to fill fat fonts.
You know we have all been this way
trying to figure out how to
do certain things in PSP...I am here to help ya!!
Here are two fonts I zipped for you, that would be good for this
Drag & Drop arrow
You can use either of these seamless tiles below, or
can use your own...
To save these just right click on them.. open in
your PSP and just minimize.
On your materials
palette below change it to pattern on the background/fill box. On
the top foreground/stroke box pick a color that goes with the
pattern your using..
Left click on the background/fill box and this window below comes
up. Any pattern tile that you have open on your PSP desktop will
show in this drop down window, as you see below.
Below shows you the settings for your TEXT tool.. Set it on Vector.
Direction in Horizontal & down, the width of the stroke is up to
you... and Line Style is also up to you.. its whatever look your
wanting. On the heading at the top of this tutorial I used a styled
line not just straight.
When you apply your
text... right click on the Vector layer on the layer palette.. and
convert to raster layer..
The text will be on
its own layer.. so go to Selections/select all / float.. now you can
apply glass effects or inner bevels.. or 3D shadows.. what ever
looks good to you.
Below I use Super Blade Pro and applied the coconut ice preset. You
can find that preset
I hope you enjoyed this short tutorial.. till next time
