and Merge visible all the top layers.. that's above the frame
I had previously made a brush with
the tube's artist's copyright info.. I do that with all license
artists.. so I can use the brush
as a stamp for all tags I make..
that way all you do is 'stamp the copyright info on to a tag.. I put
the copyright info..
on a new layer.. that way I can
bring down the opacity on that layer... I hate to see people's
copyright info the first thing that
jumps out at me... its not suppose
to be that way...just so it's big enough to see and read...
Open the beautytext.png that was in
the supplies zip... copy and paste it to the bottom of the image..
Be sure when you're moving
the text do not tet the bottom of
the 'y' too close to the bottom where it gets cut off..
