This video will teach you how to create a logo on a transparent background. You'll also learn how to apply drop shadow to your text as well as a beveled affect.

One thing should be noted and that is that this training is meant only for images with a white background.

Any other images with colored background needs to go through a bit more intensive editing to bring it to a point of transparency (a whole other lesson)!

Thank you for watching... sure do appreciate your 'likes'!

Thank you Erick. When ya' think about it, this is all some guy or gal is doing at Fiverr for your cash! I'm kind of a cheapo like just doing it myself...(-;

Ya' know.... we could probably start up a gig at Fiverr ourselves, ey...LOL!!!

You're welcome Wendy. And you are so right... it was frustrating tracking it down and figuring out how to do something so simple. I spent hours on GIMP and YouTube tracking this little bugger down... LOL! Reckon I'm not the sharpest knife in the 'ol kitchen drawer...(-;

Hope all is great with ya' Wendy!
