Tip: This works better if you use a nice broad font. This effect will look good in most colours, but black and white are generally the least effective.

Open up Paint Shop Pro and create a new image, or open up the image you want to add text to.

Step 5

On your keyboard, press ‘Ctrl’ and hold down while you press ‘D’ once to deselect the image. Save. Your text should look something like this:
