Firey Text

Recommended Posts

Ok, so here is my problem.

As soon as I do the curves operation, theree are unwanted luminous clouds in the background that get affected. I also have a pic.

HOW DO I AVOID THIS?

Damn, I hate this...just started using Paint.NET and...this tutorial really is hard to use. I can't even make the fire...and I don't understand most of the things there...

@ DeadEye

Try doing some of the easier tut's first. Get used the difference of duplicates and layers, and what the layer properties will/can do. I know its hard in the beginning, especially if you've had no prior knowlage of such programs before this. But you will notice that its easy to learn how to do things once you start out on it... just dont give up at you first tries :wink:

Well, you were right, I tried again a bit later, and here's what I got :

Kinda weak compared to what I've seen here...but I like it. :D

However, when I tried again, when I got to the flattening part, I couldn't see the text because of the clouds! Why?

I don't think I did it right haha. I'm going to have to try again. I forget to create a new layer when I made my clouds. Heres what I got.

I have the same problem I think It's because I forgot to add a layer for the clouds.

Never mind I figured what my problem was I put black text on a white background, I have to do it the other way around.

I got it, but it isn't as firey as I wanted, but now that I know how to do it I will mess with some of the steps to see if I can get it to look more firey. Nice tut, just some of the stuff is worded weird to make it harder, for instance you could say make your 1st layer all black, then add another layer for your text and use white font color, instead of "create the text layer, white on black"

Nice tutorial though.

This is where I am:

This is right before I merge. It looks like nothing. What am I doing wrong? I followed the directions exactly.

Wow what an incredible site. I am simply amazed at this program. I really never pictured myself a gfx tweaker until I started making siggy bars for the crew at xcpus.com. Now it just like *speechless* I honestly didnt think I would ever get into somethig like this till I tweaked a nebula and an intel wafer shot to look like a yin yang sphere, just by guessing my way though the interface.

This stuff is awesome.
