The Dragon Web Sig Tag Tutorial
This tutorial was created on May 1, 2004. If it bears any resemblance to another tutorial on the net, it is pure coincidence. The skills that you will learn here are your own, and I hope that you will find them useful. In this tutorial, I will assume that you have a basic working knowledge of PSP and plug-ins, and it is made for upper level beginners or intermediate skill levels. Remember to save your work often.
Open your tube and hit "shift D" to duplicate. Close the original and minimize the duplicate for later use.
Open a new image 400 x 400 transparent.
Apply the VM Instant Art/Steel Basket filter with these settings:
Use your magic wand and click in the blank area. You should now have this:
Selections/Invert and then hit your delete key. You should now have this:
Fill your selection with a light color from your tube. I chose #FCF4B5.
3D Effects/Inner bevel and use these settings:
Apply a drop shadow using these settings:
Re-open your minimized tube. Copy. Re-select your web image and Edit/Paste As New Layer.
Resize as needed. I resized the Dragon tube by 80%. If you do this step, Image/Resize/80% all layers resize all layers unchecked.
You should now have something like this:
Add a drop shadow to your tube using the same settings as before except change the V & H to 4.
Add your watermark if you wish at this stage. Merge/Merge Visible. Save as blank tag for future use if you wish.
Add a new raster layer for the text.
Choose your text and add text as desired. I used Blade Pro and the Basic Gold preset but do as you desire.
Export your finished file as a transparent gif and your all set.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
