Over the years I provided hundreds of tutorials through PM, none of them made the tutorial archive.
This is one of them:

Looks nice, you should add a higher value to the blur (I didn't specified any number because of the different resolutions)

I'll keep that in mind the next time I have to use that. Thanks icon14.gif

nice tutorial narcis, here is my attempt smile.gif

i added a bit more blur in by duplicating the layer and blurring it then adding a faint soft brush and dabbing around.

Looks alright, but try to be more subtle with the star brushes. This can be done by using the appropriate colour (not white) and size in the appropriate area. For example; where the gradient outline is yellow (on the left), use a yellow star brush. Furthermore to this, be sure to use the star brushes along the lines of the letters, not in the middle of them (if that makes sense). I would also use the star brushes on their own layer as well if you didn't already.

Also, when you duplicate the gradient layer (step five of this tutorial); add more Gaussian blur to it (but don't over do it). You want the lettering to have a glow to it; hence the Gaussian blur. Furthermore, for the gradient outline - use a 2px size stroke (again, if you didn't already).

thanks for the suggestions.Anyway I know the star brush thingy with color but the link narcis gave has a file that is not cmpatible for the ps7.I use another software for the star.
Thanks again!
