Flashing Text?


Recommended Posts

You'll need an animation program like unFREEz. Paint.NET does not do animated GIFs.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Hi DragonLord_Z, welcome to the forums :)

Flashing text, eh? Sounds like you want to make an animated .gif Here's a tut to help you out: http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2492

Now to help you out with making a font glow bright, dim, and flash again, sounds like you're gonna want to make a lot of frames if you want a smooth transition. What I suggest is

1)Open your text

2)Duplicate your text layer and on the top layer and run effect-->Photo-->Glow

3)Follow the tuts directions under the heading "Fading an object in/out". Lowering the opacity by increments and saving at each point.

Hope this helps :)

EDIT:Sorta beat by David

Yes, but it will no longer be animated.
