Nice job Mike. No doubt you stumbled across File->Export Bitmap. I used Inkscape for a while before I got CorelDRAW. Vector graphics programs are ideal for drawing text, logos and hard edged objects. They are scalable without any loss in quality. In the last wall I posted the Chromecast was drawn in CorelDRAW and the rest in Photoshop.

This is one of my efforts in Inkscape from two years ago...

Thank you Archie and Keith,
Yea I found another tutorial on saving them

Inkscape is fun and fairly ease once youtube comes into play and getting used to the different options
That particular button I found that thing long ago and always wanted to do it or replicate it in gimp or photo shop but never quite got it going,
Thanks for the link to Inkscape Keith you da man once again
I was just watching a tutorial on drawing a bug pretty darn cool lol,
Cheers.

1. You may need to use centre or fill justify on the text for the best effect.

2. Once you have you text layer use the perspective tool to move the top corners inward (or the bottom ones outward).

3. You will then need to use the scale tool to reduce the height until you get the effect you like.

We are all amateurs. Some of us have been amateurs longer than others.
