Default How to make Fill in Text Siggies using PhotoFiltre.

OMG I just figured out how to make this! xD

Here's another way of doing it (guide by ValentinaHug): http://www.bearvilleinsider.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1656597#post1656597

By the end of this tutorial, you should end up with something like this:
Click the image to open in full size.

Okay so,

1.) Open up PhotoFiltre. (xD)

2.) Go to File>>New...>> and create a new file about 400 by 200 pixels.

Here's a pic:
Click the image to open in full size.


3.) Open up the pattern you want. (You can search for a pattern on Google Images.)

Here's a picture:
Click the image to open in full size.


4.) So you should have 2 files open. The new one and the background you want. Next, making sure you are on the background file, go to Edit>>Define Pattern.

Here's where that button is:
Click the image to open in full size.


5.) Now that you've defined your pattern, you need to make a text box. Go to the capital T on the top. Pick your font, size (about 71 depending on your text) and color. (Color doesn't matter.)

Here's what that should look like:
Click the image to open in full size.


6.) Take the "Magic Wand Tool" and click on the first letter. This selects that letter.

Here's a pic:
Click the image to open in full size.


7.) Go to Edit>>Fill with Pattern.

Here's where that is:
Click the image to open in full size.

Here's how it should look when you do that:
Click the image to open in full size.


8.) Repeat step #7 for every letter.

This is how it should look when it's all filled:
Click the image to open in full size.


9.) You can stop there and save it, but I like to add an outline to mine. To do that, take the "Magic Wand Tool" again and this time click on the white (or whatever color it is) background.

Here's how that looks:
Click the image to open in full size.


10.) Right click and select "Stroke and Fill." Make sure only the stroke option is selected. Choose your color and your width (3 should be good).

Here's the window:
Click the image to open in full size.

Here's how it'll look after that (move the selected thing down):
Click the image to open in full size.


11.) Crop it (by right clicking and hitting crop) so that the outline box is gone.

Here's a pic:
Click the image to open in full size.


12.) Again you can stop there, but I'm gonna make mine transparent. To do this, make sure the background color is not similar at all to the pattern. (I'll use pink.) Take the "Bucket Fill Tool" and fill in the background.

Here's a pic:
Click the image to open in full size.


13.) Next, find the little tranparent box and click on it. Set your tolerance to 70 percent.

Here's what I mean:
Click the image to open in full size.


14.) Save as a PNG (.png) file.


And you're done!

Here's my final result:
Click the image to open in full size.


Any questions? Feel free to post them here or VM me.

No keep it. It's easier to understand. I think mine got closed anyway.

Oh I did mine differently than yours. I added your guide link to the first post as another way of doing it.

LOL yours is actually easier and requires less steps xD
