Paint.NET tutorial number 123 – Cool italic, Radial/fade and gradual color text effect


Hello. Today I’m going to show you
how to create this cool looking text. You’ll can use this for like wallpapers if you’ll make it
like 1280 by 720 or whatever size you want. So lets get started. Go to file – new
and make new image with size you want. I already did that. I have an image with size of 1280 by 720. And so lets take gradient tool with radial mode. And of course choose primary color with code 66BFFF. You’ll find these codes in description. And for secondary color I’ll use 000E28. So go back to primary color again. Click less. And draw from like center to side. So you’ll have this nice looking gradient. And for the text add a new layer. And just take text tool. I’ll use Tw Cen MT Condensed Extra Bold. And I’ll make it italic. And of course write something. I’ll align this text to center so go to
effects – align object. And choose middle center. Click ok. Lets make a gradient on that text so before that
we need to have a selection of the text. So choose magic wand tool. Choose tolerance 67 or something about that. Hold left shift and click on any letter. And when you have a selection of the text
choose gradient tool with linear mode. And draw like from like about here to bottom,
till you get this nice gradient. Then add a new layer and we are going
to make like kinda gloss thing on the top… Of course choose ellipse select tool and change
selection mode to intersect. And choose something like this. So you’ll have a selection of that top half of the text. And now on the colors click more. On the primary color choose white. Choose white as your primary. And on the secondary, click on that box,
and change transparency – alpha to 0. Then go back to primary color again by clicking on this box. Click less. Choose gradient tool with linear mode. And draw from top to bottom, of course hold left shift if you want. And go to this layer properties. And change opacity to whatever you like. And of course click ok. Deselect. Merge this layer down. And then go to effects – antialias. So we’ll get rid out of these sharp edges around text. Then go to effects – object – drop shadow. Choose white color, blur radius none and offset x like -5, -4
or something like that, and widening radius about 3. Click ok. Then go to drop shadow again. Effects – object – drop shadow. Choose black color. I already looks awesome, you can just click ok.
But if you want you can change blur radius and
offset x to the other side of the text. And yeah, so thats pretty much it. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and this is the final result. And it looks awesome, you can use this for like wallpaper. But if you want you can use for your own design and so on. So thanks for watching and bye.
