You may print this out for your own personal use, but please do not rewrite, translate, e-mail out, offer any part of this on any other site, add to a CD, or claim this as your own. Your finished result is yours to do with as you please, including making tags and/or snags for others. You may offer your results wherever you wish, but you may not sell for profit. This tutorial was written by timber on March 25, 2013.

I wrote this tutorial using PSP8 and Animation Shop 3.10. To complete this tutorial, you need to have a comfortable working knowledge of the Tools, Materials and Layer palettes, as well as the Menu options and working with plugin filters. I expect you to know how to search the web for the needed filters and fonts. I will not be taking the time to provide screenshots, but if one is needed for clarification, then just ask me.

For this tutorial, you will need:
Paint Shop Pro
Animation Shop (optional)
Meadow's Studio Coconutice Clear Glass Preset
Scriptina Font (or another scripty font of choice)
Create the Text

TEXT: Create as vector, Scriptina Font, Size 48, stroke=2

MATERIALS: FGcolor=#D60000, BGcolor=#D60000

  1. Create a new image 500x200 with a white background;

  2. Type text; highlight first letter of text and change font size to 72; adjust kerning as needed;

  3. Center on canvas;

  4. Duplicate text; edit text (change fg and bg to white);

  5. Select white text; convert to raster; apply SuperBladePro M_coconutice preset;

  6. Make red text layer active; convert to raster; apply M_coconutice;

  7. Select none;

  8. Duplicate red text; move duplicate red text layer above white text layer;

  9. Add drop shadow: 3, 1, 25, 3, #404040, shadow on new layer checked; drag drop shadow layer to bottom of layer palette;

  10. Make lower red text layer active; offset -6h,3v;

  11. Make white text layer active; offset -3h,2v;

  12. If you don't want an animated tag, you can stop here, hide the background layer, crop as needed, and save as PNG.

  1. Duplicate white text layer twice; Add noise (Gaussian, 25) to three white layers of text; hide two top white text layers;

  2. Hide background (or not) and crop as you like;

  3. Copy merged and paste in AS as frame 1;

  4. Hide lowest white text layer and unhide second white text layer; copy merged and paste in AS as frame 2;

  5. Hide second white text layer and unhide top white text layer; copy merged and paste in AS as frame 3;


Median Cut; Error Diffusion


TEXT: Gravura LET Font, size 72 (size 90 for first letter);

Color Layers: Bottom green text layer #00BD13; Middle white text layer; Top red text layer;

Add Coconutice to all three layers except change the radius setting to 19;

All other steps are the same as the tutorial.


Here's the same variation in PNG format.


And here's another variation using five layers of color.

TEXT: Miss Le Gatees Font, Size 72 (size 90 for first letter);

Color Layers: top green text layer #109A10, white text layer, red text layer, white text layer, green text layer;

Offset each layer of text as needed for a pleasing look;

All other steps are the same as the tutorial.


I'd love to see your results!
