Okay. now Re-tick your background back. then get out your rubber. Rub out all of your background.

(I Reccomend unticking your text layer. helps a bit)

You may notice you have a few small white bits so if you just do gaussian blur on 1 or 2 that gets rid and gives a nice little effect.

Now just save it and there you go

This was my first tutorial so I'm sorry if it sucked. lol

MY FINAL PRODUCT:

That's not a bad effect and a nicely written tutorial for a first try!

The only critique I have is that the text edges are pixellated. See around the curve in the letter P? That blocky (or stepped) edge is ruining the overall effect.

One thing I will ask you to do is to resize your larger images so that their maximum dimension is 800px or less. Thanks.
