yesssmileyf.gif Karla, you read my mind! blissysmile.gif  When I saw your tag on the Check In thread, I was gaga for it.  Thank you so much wetkissf.gif for sharing your tutorial! biggrin.gif

I tested the tutorial exactly as written and used all your settings.  I have to admit it was really hard for me to create my text as floating LOL, but I wanted to go through the creative process as written, so I used floating text.  I very rarely ever create text as floating, because once you close the text dialog box you can't make any more adjustments if desired; at least I have never learned how to make adjustments to floating text.  That is why I always create text as vector.  It allows me the flexibility to make adjustments such as kerning.  Do you know how to make adjustments in kerning to floating text?  Is that possible?

Your tutorial was very easy to follow  and well written .  I enjoyed the way you formatted the text using bold to make certain instructions stand out.  I used to do that for my Beginner tutorials, but now I don't have the patience, so my instructions sort of blur together LOL.  I also love the extra notes that you added to your SBP screenshot.  I'd be happy to set this tutorial up on a page and add it to the menu like I do for mine and Judy's tutorials, or I can leave it here as the first message.  If you're interested, then just let me know.

I will be back with more results as I love the glittery tag and the one with the doll.  What a perfect doll to use for this tag.  I love all your results!

Cool tut , Karla!    I discovered I already had this font, but I had never used it.  Imagine that!
I added a dollie to mine and used a font size of 72.  Other than that, I followed the tut.
Yes, timber you can adjust the kerning to floating text while it is in the text box, just like you do with vector text.  I know only because I just did it.  LOL
Thanks for the awesome tut, Karla.

Omgggg, I am so glad you two tried the tutorial! I was already anxious to see what you two will create with it :-D 
I tried making the instructions "simple" as possible. Even tested it out myself, following along lol 
As for the kerning, as Judy mentioned, it can be done when having text window (box) opened. I am still a bit clueless working with "kerning" but I remember having clicking at those settings and seeing the letters squeeze in and then spread out and I was like OH! lol 
I usually work my text as raster and keep the "marching ants" going. That is because I go straight to AS and do not like to wait lol 
Timber and Judy, thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous results!

Karla, I love this tut.  I know you are fairly new to SBP but, did you know that when you take an exicting SBP preset and change any part, even the bmps used, you can save it as a new preset?
You can give it any name you want.  That way you don't have to make adjustments every time you use it. 
Here is a screenshot of SBP.  Click the icon by the red line, a box will open that is headed "Save a settings file".  Locate your SBP environments and textures file, open it, change name of preset to your new name and you're all set!
You can share this .q5q file with others.
If you use bmps, other than ones included with SBP, you would have to include those bmps with the .q5q file, when you share it .  Otherwise, unless that person has the same bmps already installed, the preset won't work.
I think that it is cool that the .q5q file can be opened with notepad and the bmps used are listed near the beginning of the "gobbledy goop" revealed in there.  LOL  Helpful if you forget which bmps you used. 
If you name this preset that you created, let me know and I'll save it as such.

tbt18loveitStellarBlingshrp1n50.gif Omigoodness, Judy... you picked a gorgeous doll to add to your tag.  Those Daum dolls are so beautiful.  You made a "stellar" tag there LOL.  Love it!

I discovered that I could edit the kerning while in the Text Entry dialog box, but once I close the box, can I edit the kerning of the selected text?

Regarding the modified preset, I didn't know that you could give a modified preset a new name, but I tested your instructions, and it worked; I saved these SBP settings as a new preset "kse_stellarbling" .  Thank you for sharing this information as I don't think I've ever saved a modified preset before, but it's great info to know moving forward , because I'm sure I'm going to be making many more of these tags .

I made a second tag using font size=72, and I animated this one with noise using the tutorial settings, but instead of contracting the selection by 2, I only contracted by 1.  For the "love it" above, I also contracted the selection by 1, but I used noise=50 (instead of noise=100 for my name below).  The noise setting of 50 is gentler than 100.  I used a darker drop shadow on my name (opac=50) and lighter on "love it" (opac=25).  So I'm just having fun trying different settings to see how it affects the text.

Oh good! That was a question I wanted to ask about saving a preset with adjustments. I will be saving it for sure ;-) And the file name Timber saved it as is just peachy :-D Lol, do people use that word anymore? 

I am so loving the results you are sharing, Timber! Keep them coming :-D  I plan to play around with this text effect some more and maybe create something for my websites. Lol, have not added anything new in a while :-D

Thanks timber, I love those Daum dolls!
I read over my post above several times and now I see a spelling error, LOL I meant to type "existing " instead of "exicting".
I am so bad about that!
The name "kse_stellarbling"  sounds good to me.  I'll name mine that.
The easiest way to create a new SBP preset is to start with an existing preset and play around with the different settings to find one you like.  I have made a few of my own and added different bmps to use in the enviornments and textures folder.
As to the kerning to floating text, I don't know of any way to edit it after closing the Text Entry dialog box.  I'll play around and see what I can find.
Timber,I love your animated tag.    I like the look of selection contracted by 1.  Now I get to play some more.

Timber as far being able to edit floating text, the answer is no.
The word exit below should be edit.
Here is what the PSP 8 User Guide says:
page 305 PSP 8 User Guide

Floating (Raster) Creates raster text that is a floating selection. You
cannot exit (sic) raster text, so use this type when you know that the
words and formatting will not change. Use raster text when you want
to apply raster-only tools (such as the Paint Brush) or commands
(such as applying a 3D effect).

It’s best to create raster text on a new raster layer. That way, you can
easily select the text and make changes such as stretching it with the
Deform tool.

When Paint Shop Pro defloats the raster text selection (such as when
you click another tool), the raster text is merged with the underlying
raster layer. If a vector layer is active, Paint Shop Pro creates a new
raster layer.
