Recommended Posts

Ok, This is my first Tutorial on the forums so here goes.

 

I am only a beginner at photoshop, so please don't flame me when im doing

something that can be done alot simpler. If you think you can do better/simpler

please upload your own tutorial to show every one the way you would do it.

 

 

Step 1: Click File/New And enter in the information seen below. (Image 1)

Step 1a: Click the paint bucket tool in the toolbar and Select Red (ff0000) (100% Opacity) now click on the image.

(The reason i choose red is because i find it the easiest to work with whist creating this logo, you may choose

any color you like just not white or black.)

 

 

Step 2: Download My IV font HERE. (Please note this font i have created only has the letters "I" & "V" nothing else)

 

 

Step 3: After you have installed the font, Click The Text Button In the tool bar And browse for the font "Ja750 IV"

 

 

Step 4: Enter 400pt as the Text size And Text color Black then position it so the "IV" is centered, you should now

have something similar to this. (Image 2)
