Paint.NET tutorial number 86 – Very cool text


Hello. Today I’m going to show you how to make this cool text. As you can see these letters are somehow rotated. And yeah, so… Turn off background layer visibilty. And add a new one. Before we started go to image – resize or canvas size. And take the left and add some more width. Like about 2000. And then you have something like this. Take text tool. And font, any size and write something. Make sure you put some spaces beetween letters or numbers. Becouse we will need it. And yeah. So now… Take magic wand tool. Hold left shift and click on any letter. And sorry. Set more tolerance. And then click. And of course choose colors for your gradient. To select primary – left click. To select secondary – right click. Take gradient tool. And hold left shift so you’ll get a straight gradient. And drag something like this. After that deselect. Go to effects – object – outline object. Take white color. Add some more brush. Sorry – width. And then click ok. After that go to effects – object – drop shadow. Take like black color. And 0, 0, 1, 1. Or 0, 0, 1, 2. Something similar. And you can choose grey color, if you want. Not the dark (I mean not the black!). But almost. And click ok. And then you have your text. Something like this. Dublicate layer. Go to adjustments – levels. And make it totally black. Just like me. And click ok. Now move this layer down a little. And take magic wand tool. Set tolerance to about 65. Or whatever. And click on the first letter. Go to the top layer. To the original text. And take move selected pixels tool. So you can move this. Don’t worry about the black letter for now. And you can move this. To rotate – right click and by holding it you can move this. And after that deselect. Go back to black text layer. I’ll rename this layer. Ok, on the black text layer choose magic wand tool. And click on the second letter, number or something. Then go back to original. And use move selected pixels tool. To move it. And after that deselect. And do same with the other letters. Like black, magic wand tool, click, original, move it. And deselect. Black text layer, magic wand tool, click, original, move. And rotate of course if you want. Then deselect. And go to black text layer, delete it. And you can turn on background layer visibility. And I think you’re done. But I’ll go to original text layer. Take magic wand tool, like about 30 tolerance. And click outside text. And cut. So you’ll get rid out off the… I don’t know… If you couldn’t see that well that’s not my problem, but maybe youtube. And I think that’s it. You can turn off or delete background layer. You can do whatever you like. You can rename background layer if you want. Of course. Or you can draw a gradient on it. And you can crop to selection. (To the text). And that’s it I think, so… Thanks for watching and wait for more tutorials.
