    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.

    Ok, go to www.imageshack.us and click browse. Select the glittery sig you just saved. Then click host it. Copy the first code, then paste it into your signature. Ta dah! Now it's time to let the world see it! Or at least everyone on dis. :teeth:

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

    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.
