Text Icons


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've installed a photoshop plug-in so i can edit psd files but as i'm only able to do basics(like changing icon colours) with this great software,i don't know what to do.I'd like to make some custom text icons for RocketDock using the psd in the screenshot.Any step by step advice or direction to an easy to follow tutorial would be appreciated.As an example,Paint.NET icon would be:

PAINT.NET(in white on top)

GRAPHIC(in the grey below)

Thanks.

I don't understand what you're trying to do. Can you give some more information?

 

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.

Ok,sorry,maybe i wasn't explaining properly.

I'd like to make my own text icons for RocketDock or ObjectDock like these,with the .psd file in Paint.NET.The makeyourownfile you see is the one opened up in Paint.NET that shows 'Trash Full'.

I want to make my own by changing the text say,to FIREFOX BROWSER or EMULE P2P etc for example.

What are you starting with - a blank file, or one with words already on it?

If it's blank, just add a layer ( :AddNewLayer: ) and type on the two different layers. Otherwise, erase the existing text and type in what you want it to say. :-)

Thankyou for your reply,but i'm a total noob to this & nothing happens when i try & make a text icon say for Paint.NET.Do i need to hit an icon under 'Tools' first or click on something in the main menu.

I open the .psd as above, click on Layers & type a P but nothing happens.Please be more specific with exact instructions from scratch.

many thanks.

You'll need to use the Text Tool to place the text on the canvas. It looks like this: :TextTool:

EDIT: Most of your most basic questions can be answered by the help file, accessible by pressing F1 from within the program.
