Pirate text

Pirate text image 1
Create a new image 400x400 px with a white background. Using the type tool type your text onto the centre of the canvas. I have used font verdana, bold and italic.

Now you need to render the type layer, Layer>Type>Render Layer. Press X then D to reset the colours. Now go to Filter>Brush strokes>Spatter and enter a Spray Radius of "8" and a Smoothness of "9", you are almost done. Now duplicate the text layer. On the text-layer-copy, use the smudge tool, match the settings to mine opposite and gently smudge the outer edges of the text to give it an old worn effect. Now turn the opacity of the text-layer-copy down to 40%.

Now its complete, this could be very good for using when creating old maps etc. Enjoy.
