About the site
This might be a typical blog for you, but a getaway for the author - me. Sometimes I feel the need to write, but I feel that it is easier to type away my thoughts and feelings to the virtual world. My posts are sometimes emotional and filled with deep thoughts.
I will seldomly visit and update your url if it has changed, or you may tell me to do so. Link me first to be linked.

tut on how to do image text. requested by Karise :) I use Adobe photoshop CS4 for this. i guess any Adobe PS CS and above can use this method. Preview can be seen at the top of my blogskin account.

1. Open your base image (the image you wanna use as the text's background)
2. On the left tools bar, search for the "T" button and right-click it. Hence, click Horizontal/vertical type mask tool
3. Click anywhere on the base image and type the text you wanna use.
4. When you're done with the text, you can move it around by dragging it. & when you're satisfied, click any layer under the layers tab at bottom right
5. Now all you have to do is click ctrl+c or ctrl+x or you can do it manually by clicking copy/cut under the edit tab at the top menu bar.
6. Click ctrl+n or new under file tab at the top menu bar. the height and width has automatically been set up to fit the text's width and height. Change the background to transparent.
7. On the new empty image, click ctrl+v or manually paste it.
8. Save it in PNG format & you're done :D
