Can you tell me how to make my name where it looks glittery/sparkles and flashes? I want to make it look "Christmasy"

Thanks!

I can't remember the exact post...but "Darth....something" made mine for me....isn't it pretty? Like Ruby Slippers.

Maybe try searching for glittery signatures and see if you can find that thread....he made mine superfast...there is also a couple of others that are making them....rats...can't remember the names...SigFairy I think!

I don't know how they do it...but it sure is pretty!

Now go to www.flamingtext.com/fonts . Pick a font, any font you like. Click it then type in the text. Make sure under select style you have it plain. Choose a font size, I suggest 40 or 50. Then click all options and scroll down to the bottom and click the box by transparent. Leave antalising or whatever it says checked too. Wait a couple seconds until the text shows up and right click it and save it to your computer. Post once you are done. :sunny: Then I'll give you the next step.

Ok, go to www.magickstudio.com and follow these instructions carefully. Click browse and pick the text you just saved. Wait for it to load then go to composition. Click browse then select the glitter. Change gravity to centered and compose should be switched to in. Then check the box that says tile across and down the image canvas. Then click composite. Wait for it to load then go to output. Select gif, then click output. Ta dah! That is what it will look like. Right click and save. Post when you are done. Then I will give you the final step.

Did you click transparent? If you don't you end up with a sparkly box.

That would be where I chose the font right??

iluvcountry

Yeah! You choose the font, changed the style to plain, and clicked all options where you scrolled down and clicked transparent. :sunny: If you need any more help let me know.

MinnieMouseMom
09-10-2005, 07:59 PM
My font was Melted Moments. Tink1bell's was Happy. Both from Flamingtext.com. Ahh, it just dawned on me that maybe you were talking about the DDA one with the Disney font. Julia&NicksMom made that one.

If webshots will host it, you could put it there. Sometimes the server my stuff is on isn't the most reliable. ;) Otherwise, just copy the link location

I'm having the same problem as Nikkibell. I followed all the directions perfectly, including clicking transparent, and I still get a box. I even tried different fonts thinking it was something funny with the font I'd chosen, but I can't get it to work.

Any ieas?

Would someone like to create a sparkley siggie for me? I would like my username my3princes, but I would like it to look like a mickey head. I would like the big circle to have my at the top and princes around the bottom with a 3 in the center. Then have Mickey ears on the big circle. I would like the Mickey head to sparkle. I can picture it in my head, but have no idea how to create it. I would like blue sparkles and have no font preference.

Thanks to anyone who wants to attempt it.

I'm having a problem with the colors I'm using to make the sparkle images. When I first started doing it the colors turned out just the way they looked when I saved them. Now when I try to use dark blue, it turns out purple (above) and when I use red it turns out pink. I can't figure it out.

09-18-2005, 09:41 AM
How do you make images? I would love to make one, lol. But I don't know how...

Zandy595

I search for a black and white image, save it on my computer and then do it the same way you do the names. If you need any help let me know.

Uh... You lost me...

Zandy595
09-18-2005, 09:57 AM
Sorry.

For the Tinkerbell one, I did a search for a car window decal because I knew it was a black outline of tink. I right clicked and selected save as. Open up http://www.magickstudio.com/ and click the Browse button to get your image. When you add the glitter part you have to select Blend, instead of In.

Does that make any sense?

iluvcountry
09-18-2005, 10:01 AM
A little bit... Yeah... So you need a black outline?

Zandy595
09-18-2005, 10:05 AM
I don't know if you really need a black outline image. I haven't tried to do it with anything else.

*NikkiBell*
09-18-2005, 10:07 AM
The only way it would work for me was to click blend instead of in. :)

Disneyaggie when you are at flamingtext.com and have picked your font style click on "all options". Then at the bottom of that screen you will see a box that states "transparent" click the box. Next click create logo. And take it from there. That should help

Hey, at least you got some sparkly achieved!

I have YET to figure this out! I have even printed off everything to assist me and I still can't get anything to work out right. I am getting really annoyed, to say the least. It seems easy enough, but even though I am following everything to the letter, I can not get mine to do right.

If anyone is having a problem and would like some help making a sparkly sig, PM me your font name and sparkle color and I'll make one for you.

If the font is not on FlamingText.com it will have a white background. Mine has a white background, but you can't see it unless I post on a forum that has a colored background.

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b382/Zandy595/MickeyIcon1.jpg I use this Mickey head. Sorry it's so big, I couldn't figure out how to make it smaller. You'll have to resize it at MagickStudio. You make it the same way you would do a name, except instead of choosing IN under Compose select BLEND. Resize it before you do the Output part.

I hope that makes sense. Let me know if you need more help.

i made the following instructions from screen grabs. i hope this is legal. :)

this is the page after you pick the font you want.
http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b136/ineedkelp/Picture-3.jpg

after you click the all options box, this should pop up.
http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b136/ineedkelp/Picture-5.jpg

you'll click on the create logo button and get your text in the top middle of the page. right click and save it somewhere where you'll be able to find it.

then you'll go to that other website and upload your picture using the browse button and then the view button after you pick your image. once uploaded, you'll click on the button on top that says composite.

it will bring you here:
http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b136/ineedkelp/Picture-11.jpg

follow the instructions on that page and you should see a picture of your image come up on the new page that loaded.

once that is done, click on the output bar on top. this will bring you to the place where you can save your picture.

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b136/ineedkelp/Picture-12.jpg
follow the instructions that i have there and then right click on the image in the new page and save it to your computer.

hope that helps everyone who is having trouble!

Now go to www.flamingtext.com/fonts . Pick a font, any font you like. Click it then type in the text. Make sure under select style you have it plain. Choose a font size, I suggest 40 or 50. Then click all options and scroll down to the bottom and click the box by transparent. Leave antalising or whatever it says checked too. Wait a couple seconds until the text shows up and right click it and save it to your computer. Post once you are done. :sunny: Then I'll give you the next step.

Thank you so much for posting this. I've been trying to follow along but when I click on it there's no place to type in my text. I'm trying to use the Mufferaw font. Also the ads are really clogging things up. Help! What am I doing wrong?

I love seeing all the sparkly signatures, and the creativity that has gone into them.

This looks like a good place for a heads up/reminder about the guidelines for signatures, so we can be sure the Signature Fairy doesn't visit and remove the signatures for being too large!

I've stuck a post with the Signature Guidelines at the top of the VMK forum, here - DIS Signature Guidelines. (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=931068)

The main things:

Filesize - all of your images added together need to be 50K or less

Physical size (in pixels) - each graphic can be a maximum of 200 pixels tall and 550 pixels wide

Number of graphics - up to 3 graphics, including countdowns, screenshots, signature images, etc.

Hi-I'm trying to add a sparkly sig and am wondering if I'm doing something wrong. I've been trying to use the directions on the first page and have gotten to magick studio. When I get to the part where I'm supposed to see my image, the sparkles are there but they aren't moving-does that make sense? Am I supposed to be able to see them moving at this point or not?

Edited to say thanks & I guess you need to wait for the next screen to see it sparkly! :)

When you went to "output" and saved your name. Did you right click on the name on top or one of the 3 that were on the bottom. When I did mine i wasn't quite sure which one to save but the top one was the only one sparkling right so I saved that one and mine works great.
