You will be making this:



Step 1: Create a new image, 800 x 600.




Step 2: Choose paint bucket tool and fill the Background Layer with black.



Step 3: Create a new layer.




Step 4: Choose a Bold font using the fonts menu.

Step 12: Merge the Text Layer and the Background Layer:




You're done!

If you have any suggestions or
