I recently posted for help with a book cover I was trying to put together and I thank those that shared with me their suggestions. I am basically finished with what I am doing, but I would like to tweak it a little more. I was wondering if anyone would have a simple quick tutorial for a broken/shattered Glass Text? Thank you!

If anyone is interested to see where I am at so far click the link below, click Download File and click Open.

Hi ocean77!

 

New to BC and your project, sure sounds interesting.  Are you able to use Photobucket (or such) and embed your project status picture?

 

Here's text I created using Microsoft Paint.  Is this something like what you are looking for?

Thank you GB for the links. Thank you Martel I will take look. Sorry you could not open. It is a Paint Shop Pro (PSP) program, maybe that is why you cannot view it. Do you have PSP? I could convet to JPEG, but would not know how to post here. All I see here for an Image posting is URL. Thanks again people for your help.

Went to Gimp, but had no idea how to use their program. Yes Softeyes that is very much what I am looking for, but it just wouldn't work out for me. I know it is because I just can't get it for some reason.

ocean77, if you are comfortable sharing, do you not get it meaning Microsoft Paint, or the process of "creating" the look?

LOL..what I did was my first try so I am certain anyone can do it! If once you have finished your wording, you can save it several ways?

Let me know if I could tell you the steps I used if it would help your project 👍😃✨

I'm not sure if it is the version of PSP I am using, but when I try and follow any of these tutorials they get to a step that doesn't seem to be there. I know it is there, but it is probably found in a different manner. I am using PSP Version X10. You could try and share the steps you took (if you don't have to go way over board). I do not want you going way out of your way on my account. I'm thinking once I get this broken title matter accomplished I am doing the back cover, which should be simple and it's ready to go. After this I plan on doing a lot of learning because I would like to do web, (which I have a little knowledge with) Flyer, Business Card and other design projects to make a living. I would like to be doing this within the year. I pray this happens anyway.

Okay Softeyes, have a great weekend.

Tom

Microsoft Paint is a "free" program typically found in Accessories.  I believe I read that you use Windows 8. Here is a YouTube video that will guide to to find "Paint":

Tom, working with fellow forum members is a joy for me!  If all of us can share what we know with one another, and we learn something new, life becomes so wonderful!  I come to BC to learn; the immense amount of volunteer sharing is simply incredible and I really cherish everything that I can glean to become a better computer user. Giving back, if I ever have anything to contribute, feels real good. :)

 

Working with Microsoft Paint allows a user to create anything (almost to infinity!)  The best part for me, is if I have attempted to create something and I add one line I don't like, I can use the keyboard command Ctrl Z- and the last step is erased leaving the rest of my protect intact!

 

After you discover your computer has "Paint" ~ post back and I can give you just a few simple steps and you'll be creating "broken glass" with anything!

 

Question Tom:  Do you have Microsoft Office 2010 (or any version) installed on your computer?  Believe me, you can do the most incredible work in Word! 

(Fun :clapping: )

Yes I have Windows 8 and I do remember seeing Paint. I'm going to check that out now. No, I do not have any MS Office Suite. I use Libre Office. I've been using this for the last 5 years.

Good evening Tom!  I have created three pictures that will serve as a humble version of a tutorial!  There are arrows pointing to steps and as easy as I attempted to keep it all you might need to take some time to figure out the road map!  (Sorry..no Garmin will help!)  I suppose the best I can offer you is to just play and have fun!  Once you get the hang of the simple steps, you'll become really good at breaking text!  I have used Microsoft Word to create the tutorial, then I used Windows snipping tool to capture the pictures. LOL..yes I like to play just like a 2md grader and for the professionals in this forum area..please have a chuckle with me! :lmao:

Sorry Lisa I must be a 1st Grader. I have Paint open and I was working breaking up title and is coming along fine. Thank you, I'm going to work (play around) to see what I can come up with. If you can come up with a simple way of blending photos where they are no longer shaped like boxes I would appreciate it. Have a great day.

Tom

 

Thank you much for showing me what a good program Paint actually is. I went back in and put together a pretty good Broken Glass Text, but I plan on playing around a little bit more to make it better. I've got a question though. How do I use what I make in PSP without taking the background on Paint with the Text? Thank you!
