View Full Version : How to make glitter names!!!! It's easy once you know how!

Okay I, like I'm sure many others that make the glitter names, have been flooded with requests to make them. although I certainly do not mind doing it (it only takes less than 2 mins since i have the steps memorized....once you do it a few times you will too!)

I wanted to post a thread on how to do it so anyone can make their own, or make them for others. Here are the step by step instructions for both making them, and posting them:

1. Go to this site: http://www.wtv-zone.com/Briggy/glitters/glitters.html and find the glitter colors you like. Save each one by right click on it and "save".

2. Then to make the name, go to http://www.flamingtext.com/fonts/ and find a font you want. Click the font. Then where it says "select style" (drop shadow will be in the box) change it to "PLAIN". In the text box, take out "flaming text" and put what you want the name to say. Then hit the "all options" button. All you need to do here is scroll down to where it says "transparent" and check the box. Then click "create logo". It will take a few seconds, then you will see the name. Right click on the name and save. REMEMBER WHERE YOU SAVE IT!

3. Then go here: http://www.magickstudio.com/
Click "browse" and double click the name you saved. Then when the filename is in the box, click "view". When it comes up, click the button on the lower right of the buttons up top that says "composite". Click "browse" again and this time, double click the glitter color you saved from the first page that you want to use. Once the filename is in the box, change "Gravity" to "Center", change "Compose" to "In", and check the box that says "tile across and down the image canvas". Then click "composite" button above that.
You should see the name without the sparkle animation. Now you want to click the button up top that says "output". change format to "gif" (if it's not already selected, which if probably will be) and click "output".
You should now see your animated, sparkly name. Right click and save the name. That's it!

Here's how to post it in sig's or posts:

1. right click on the sparkly sig and left click on "save as" or "save image". Remember where you saved it!

2. go to http://www.imageshack.us/ and click "browse". It will open your files and you double click the glitter name file. Then click "host it!" You will see lots of boxes with strings of text. You want the one that says "hotlink for forums 1" beside it. Highlight the ENTIRE line of text in that box. Then copy it (right click and "copy" or control/C).

3. paste it in you signature (right click, then paste; or control/V) (sorry, some of you may already know how to copy/paste, but just in case...)
You will know it pasted correctly if it starts and ends with "url" in brackets.
4. preview your sig or post to make sure it looks right. If you are still having problems, let me know!

:flower: Mia :flower:

EDIT: It was brought to my attention (on the 4th page, by BobRichmond) that one of the links here was not working...but I tried again, going thru all my steps here and it worked. I'm not sure what the problem is! If it does not work for you, try the link he posted:

http://redux.imagemagick.org/Magick...agickStudio.cgi

hope all works out!

That is useful information thanks for the post! I was wondering, do you happen to know how to make pictures all glittery? I know there are probably other threads that state this, but since we are on the topic of signatures lol.

I have no clue how to make pictures. And Tracey, LOL yes, it's too big! On the font page where you type in the name you want, there is a box to change font size. Make it about 40 and see how it looks.

MiakodaWDW

you should be able to click in the boxes and get all the options popped up, then click on "center" and "in". Make sure you are not scrolling down with your mouse roller after doing so, or it will scroll down the choices you picked for gravity and compose. click somewhere else before you scroll down, or use the slide bar to scroll.

Another way to make them, and to glitter pictures also is using Paint Shop Pro. You can download a trial version and then search for a glitter fonts tutorial. I no longer have it in favorites, sorry.

Another thing....for some reason I started having trouble doing glitter sigs on Internet Explorer (it worked before and then didn't....it would come out as a big rectangle of glitter)...but Firefox works just fine so I use that now!

Glad most of you were able to do it, they look great!

By the way, Iluvcountry is the one who taught me how to do this (teaching someone else on another thread and I read it), so thanks to iluvcountry! :cool1:

Thats the way I prefer to do it also. I have a few tuts still bookmarked if anyone wants to try their hand at PaintShopPro just pm for the links. For me I took a free mini beginner class online to learn the program, glitter stuff came after I was more familiar with it. Now I'm enjoying making stuff for incredimail.. always something to create. :earsgirl:

MiakodaWDW
11-13-2005, 11:32 PM
So, the free "trial" for Paint shop Pro....is it just a mini version, or do you only get to use it for a certain amount of time, or what?

The download is a free trial. Just this morning I got a link to another way to make glitter names. This is certainly the easiest way I've ever seen, just fill in a few blanks and you're done. Its a lot like flamingtext.com

no, it did not work. The name is there but it messed up the other links on your sig. Tell me what you did....looks like somehow the link got posted wrong. Make sure each link is separate and each begins with URL in [brackets] and ends with /URL in [brackets].

When I do it, everything works fine EXCEPT that when I clicked composite the second time in Magikstudio, the glitter was over the text. And I placed "in" on one of the boxes.

Renpener
03-14-2006, 10:47 PM
Can someone try this for me? I cannot get it working for some reason. When I go to ImageMagick and finish it, its a giant box of the glitter I chose.

Here is what I used: Glitter was Green
Front was Babby Kruffy.
Text was Renpener Was Here...
If someone can try that and see if that works, it would be gladly appreciated.

Either the font picture background was not made transparent or you did not combine the glitter IN the font picture.

It's been a long time since I made one, but if I remember correctly it was not working with internet explorer. It would just have a glittery box, no name. I tried Mozilla Firefox and it worked. I see that you have a glittery sig, Renpener, so I guess it worked (unless you were going for a different one). If not, pm me with details and I can make you one.

Anyone else too...the offer still stands for me to make names, I just can't promise it will be that day or the next...my dis/vmk time is limited lately.

On the ImageMagick Studio site you will see "Gravity" after you input the filename of your name picture and click on "Composite". It is on the same page that you enter the glitter picture file name.

We have been trying to make a glitter signature for my daughter for about two weeks now.

When we go to create the image in Magick Studio, all we get is the following:

Your image has expired:
/home/magick/public_html/workarea/748d92e98453f2aa1f35402de7b29dce3cd8b09e75f429b582 7a5bdbc2a89668
No such file or directory

I have tried on both FireFox and IE and on different computers. Anybody else having any issues with this?

I had that problem last night about 3 times when I used the link at the start of this thread. When I used the link I had in my favorites (http://redux.imagemagick.org/MagickStudio/scripts/MagickStudio.cgi) it worked the first time. The links are different and I do know that site has changed, so that may be the problem. Will PM this link to Miakoda and hopefully she will update the first post.

I have heard of ppl using photobucket to host pics, but I tried it once, and I don't like it as much as imageshak. Sometimes pics are not hosted for long on PB, I have seen many pics that are a box saying "This picture has been removed by the site" or something, and says "Photobucket" on it. Every pic I have hosted on imageshak has stayed there forever! Plus they updated IS so you can change the size of the pic, like make it smaller for message boards automatically, instead of having to resize big picture files yourself before uploading. Just make sure to always select the code for "hotlink for forums 1" (usually the first line of text under the picture and advertisement once you upload it).

TEST:

~M~

P.S. I have not made a glittery name in so long, I forgot how to, and if I made another I would have to follow my own list of steps! LOL. So I don't know if anything from my first post of instructions has changed or not. It's been since last year sometime, I think, that I did it!

I received this error the first time I tried. My image in step 2 was the problem. When I saved it to my hard drive, it was not a .gif file, but rather a rarely used file type. When you save your image on this step, look at the file extension. Be sure to save it as a ".gif" and you should be set.

It did the trick for me,
