Color, a brighter color. Dark gray in there. Let’s edit the drop shadow or inner shadow. The distance would be less, size would be more though. Choke, I’ll put that about 34%. And OK. Now we do is select it with this little box selection tool, control C. go into our image, control V. and were going to control T to make it smaller and hold shift while we’re doing this again. It might look distorted, but it will look better later. Control T, and we’re just going to rotate it. Because I want it standing up straight. Actually, I think I’ll give this one a straight line going down. Control V. we’re just going to rotate, which yours is all up to you. Whatever you want to look like. Yours might not look like anything like mine. But this is just to show you what you need to do. Mainly what you need, for me, is just the template. But this works. This will help you, some of you. Some of you are just saying, get done with all these easy stuff, get to the next part. Some of you will be saying, slow down. Do this again. What’s that? So really, I'm just going by what I would’ve wanted when I was a beginner. The rest of you can just wait a little bit. 4, then 5. See, they're not perfectly aligned, they're not all perfectly straight. But I don’t need that right now. I already have a design for this site or the YouTube page. So let's just say that’s what I want my design to look like. It actually looks really bad, I like my other design that I had. It looks like this, with the stars circled around. But it’s cool. Alright. So now, let's go an edit this text right here. Give it a drop shadow. So just double click and drop shadow. And angle that to where you want it, I think it looks best right there maybe. And then I need, let's try, actually let me spread that out a little bit. There we go. And OK. That looks okay to me. Now for this template, I'm just going to give it a little stroke. But we’re going to make it a white stroke. Opacity, maybe going up a bit. Not too much. Maybe a 85. Actually you know what, I'm going to make that 90% opacity. I’ll move this down for 4 pixels. Alright. Yeah, and let's now make so that it fades. In my other one I have links right here with the text, but I already showed you with this how to put text. I'm going to make it fade into the black background that were going to have. Actually first make everything invisible by clicking this little eye ball. Except for the background there, which depending on what you want your background to look like on your YouTube page. I want to make mine fade into black, so I’ll go down here use the one selection tool. Use the box selection tool. And I'm just going to do some paint bucket and fill it with black. So now, we just make everything back to how it was before. Turn it on. So now to go into here. So were going to do here, were going to do the eraser tool. We’re going to right click and we’ll going to make the little fuzzy 300 number right there. Let’s size it down to about 100 or near that. So were on the layer 1, just erase. Try to make it straight if you want. That’s what I want. That’s all I know. Your design may want it to look less straight, but more detailed. Now let's go to template, just do the same thing. So were just going to right click save as, file save as. Pick a name, I’ll just name it as video. And jpeg. Save. Just move this to maximum, because you going to want that to look great. Press OK. So you go in to YouTube, and select themes and colors on your page and new theme. Just name it whatever you want, I’ll do video. But choose file, select your file, let it load. And save changes. And you’ll see the 5 stars text we made, the subscribe button pointing to here. It fades off. Well, this has been Austin from Eminent Tech Tutorials.
