Little tip on text effect

Little tip on text effect

Little tip on text effect

This may be an obvious one to regular users of PSP, but here's a nice simple text effect:

1) Write some (white) text on a coloured background
2) Go to Image/Blur/Motion blur
3) Set the direction to 90 and intensity to high (like 40)
4) Select the text again (what you previously typed will be saved - at least it does in PSP5)
5) Place the same type over the blurred image
6) Hey presto! Simple but cool effect.

For an example, check out the blue band at the top of www.syclick.com

RE: Little tip on text effect

That's a nice effect!

To see a similar, although more involved effect, visit the tutorial at:  http://www.c2000.com/psp/seven7.htm.
