Using Filters...

I am trying to create a logo with my name in it using one of the filters but I'm having problems.  Whenever I select the text I want to use filters on, the filters that I want to use are all unhighlighted so I can't use them.  When I load up one of the sample files that come with Photoshop, I can use whichever filter I please.  What am I doing wrong?

You havent rendered the text yet. You cannot apply filters to editable text because photoshop treats them as postscript fonts. So, render the type layer by choosing the layer->type->render type menu. Then perform your filter.
