    i imported a background image of fire to use as a text color. It looks greta but it will not cover the entire text. When i use the slider to scale the image, it will only cover a portion of the text. the rest just disappears. how can i get the image to cover the entire text?

    Hi Phattaildeuce.

    Great question.

    Here's a trick:

    Create a blank canvas in The Logo Creator (File > New)

    Import your 'small' fire image (use the File > Import menu option)

    Make the fire larger by using the scale tool. Depending on how small it is, it may get a little blurry.

    Export this image as a PNG with Transparency (using the File > Save as PNG menu option)

    Then bring this new image into your text.

    ... post what you create!
    I'd like to see this.


    Hope this helps

    Marc
