The attachment he sent me opened in MS WORD. The logo has each letter in a different color, plus a flower where the letter"o" would go.I used SnagIt to grab the logo and then opened it in photoshop cs and used the magic wand to drag the text and flower to a new transparent background. I wanted to change the "flat" lettering to gel text effect such as the tutorial at the following address: http://www.good-tutorials.com/track/152
There are so many steps in this tutorial, and the text only deals with one color. I wouldn't even know how to do it with each letter a different color. So I used the following tutorial: http://www.good-tutorials.com/track/1865
Problem is, when I'm working on the lettering effects, it's a good size. However, when I save and then re-open the file, I see a huge transparent background and teeny letters. I can only view the logo by zooming in on it. Then I had to email it back to him, so I tried to open it in word ( I tried a bitmap and a jpeg format) and Word says it "can't open the document because either the file is damaged or it was sent to me as an email attachment. I finally had to open it up in SnagIt and save it as a jpeg file, but it is still teeny tiny. I have so many problems with this I don't know which question I should be asking. Start with the size of the lettering and also is there a way to do these tutorials with each letter a different color? Would I have to use a separate layer for each color? Thanks for your trouble.
