Copy and paste your selected Word art & resize 40% twice. I then added the following gradient glow and then drop shadow.



At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Passions Conflict Rob, size 72 black and added the same gradient glow and drop shadow as before.

If you are choosing not to animate, then you can save your tag.

To animate, close off Mask layer 2 & 3 (the lil eye icon in your layer palette), Edit/Copy Merged and paste as new animation in Animation Shop. Close off Mask layer 1 and open Mask layer 2, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS.
