Open up the file you've been working on. The last step is adding text. For the girls using PS this will be easy, but the PSP gals will find this a bit more challenging. I fully expect some of you to need to repeat this step. This will probably be the hardest part for some of you.

Ok, on to the lesson. Look at your material palette and make sure your materials palette looks like this, with the white being the background color.



Then we will add some text. Add my name Teresa (no h please, lol). You can choose whichever font you'd like. Ok, so your siggy should now look like this.



Right click on your layer (in the layer palette) and duplicate your layer.



Then click on your text in the center to open up the vector property box. Set the stroke on ONE of your layers to 5.



Move the text with a size 5 stroke behind the first other Teresa layer (if it isn't already) by dragging it down in your layer palette or going to the top navigation menu and selecting Layer > Arrange > Move down.

Next we are going to add a drop shadow to our layer with the size 5 stroke. To do this, make sure you have selected the "Teresa" layer with a size 5 stroke, not the one without it. Go to the top and select Effects > 3D Effects > Drop Shadow. You will be prompted to rasterize your layer. Click ok. Then a window will come up for you to adjust your drop shadow settings. Adjust your drop shadow settings to look like mine (set it to 3 and 3). We only want a really small drop shadow on this.



Ok, your siggy should look like this now.



Ok, on to the colorizing. Select the Teresa layer without the stroke. Look in the layer palette for the letter A next to the layer and click on it. You might have to click on the plus sign to expand it.



Then select Convert Text to Curves > As Character Shapes



Then click on the plus sign to expand.



Then you can click on each letter individually in the layer palette and then adjust the color in the material palette.



The last step will be adding a slight bevel to the text to make it shiny.

Click on the plus sign again to collapse Teresa back down. Then select the Teresa layer that you just colorized. Go up to the top and select Effects > 3D Effects > Inner Bevel.



You will be prompted to rasterize the layer. Click ok. Then you need to adjust your settings to look like mine and click ok again.



Repeat the above steps with the Mom to Megan but this time skip the colorizing and you are done!

I am using PSP XI and when I try to change one teresa layer to stroke width 5, both the orig. and copy change. How do I fix that?

With your text icon still selected (it should be if you just did your text), right click on your text and choose properties...

Here is a link to how I do my text in psp, which is a bit different from the lessons but might be of help:

Here is my step 3. I know her sepia tone is off, but I couldn't figure that out . I could easily find the grey scale to turn it b&w though.
