20.  The Flood Fill Tool Image (F) should still be loaded.  If it`s not, then load it.

Copy this color palette and Paste into PSP as a New Image Image (Ctrl+V).
You can save it to your computer for future use if you like.


You can use this color palette (or another color of your choice) to colorize your text.
I`ll be using the color inside the black rectangle (#E4D58F) for my example.

Set the Foreground Color with a color from the color palette by holding down
the Ctrl key (the cursor will change to a dropper Image),
positioning the cursor over a color, and clicking to select.

Flood Fill Image the selection with the foreground color.

21.  Make Diamond active.


Load Selection #1 from the Alpha Channel Image.

Selections > Load/Save Selection > Load Selection From Alpha Channel


Contract the selection Image by 3 pixels.

Selections > Modify > Contract

For smaller font sizes, only contract by 2 pixels.

Image 22.  On the Materials palette, set the Background Style to Pattern Image.  Load the tbt-diamond pattern and apply these settings (on the left).

I`m using Angle=0, but you could also use angles 90, 180, and 270. With any other angle, the diamond pattern will be blurry.

Image 23.  Flood Fill Image the selection with the background pattern.
Image 24.  Make Gold2 active.


Flood Fill Image the selection with the foreground color.
25.  Make Diamond active.


I`m going to add some Noise to give the "diamonds" a sparkle effect.  But first I want to lighten the diamonds,
because adding the PSP Noise will make the diamonds darker.  If you want a darker look to your diamonds,
then skip to step #26 here.

I will be using the DSB Flux Bright Noise filter to lighten my diamonds.
If you don`t have the Bright Noise filter, then skip to step #25a and follow the alternate instructions.

Add these Bright Noise settings.

Effects > Plugins > dsb flux Bright Noise


Deselect Image.

Selections > Select None (Ctrl+D)


25a.  If you don`t have the Bright Noise filter, and you want to lighten the diamonds
before adding PSP Noise, you can use this noise pattern to flood fill the selection.

To use the noise pattern, right-click and save to your computer.
Open the pattern (tbt-noise.gif) in Animation Shop (it will have a transparent background).
Copy Image (Ctrl+C) and Paste in PSP as a New Image Image (Ctrl+V).

Image On the Materials palette, change the
diamond pattern to the noise pattern
(Angle=0, Scale=100).


Flood Fill Image the selection with the background pattern.

Deselect Image.

Selections > Select None (Ctrl+D)
Image 26.  Hide the Background.
