Sparkling Text Tutorial

This is something I came up with just a few minutes ago. It won't wow anyone to the point of hiring you to do graphic design for them, and it isn't animated, but I think if you tweak it a little you can come up with reasonable results.

Open any sized document. The size depends on what text you want or on the rest of your project. I am using a default 420x300.

You have that open, so type your text on the canvas.

Now to make it sparkly, go to "Filters">"Noise">"HSV Noise..." and change the settings around until you get something you like.

Now to make a starlike sparkle go to "Filters">"Light and Shadow">"Sparkle" and play around with the settings until it looks good.

I know its a bit hard to see in the pictures, but if you click the images, it will be clear. Thanks for reading my blog!
