If you are a web designer, we bet you know how challenging and difficult it can be to create a nicely decorated text. However, the fruits of such routine yet highly creative work are always extremely valuable, because professionally decorated text contributes to the overall success of the project, making it unique, authentic, and easily identifiable.

To help designers and offer them some fresh ideas on text decoration, we have collected the best tutorials on text manipulation and decoration styles from all over the Web and brought them up here to the Cruzine magazine. The tutorials provide step-by-step guidelines and explanation on how to create a particular effect or style of text decoration using popular image editors or painting programs. Since text decoration project requires the use of colors, specific shapes, backgrounds, brushes, fonts, and the text itself, these text decoration tutorials are good sources of information about practical application of multiple tools and techniques you have probably seen, for example, in Photoshop, but never knew their purpose and practical use.

Remember, that any text decoration project should be stylistically close to the general concept of the project where it will be used. That is why all these tutorials have clear thematic coloring. For example, some of the text decoration styles, presented here, can fit perfectly some handcraft-related websites, while others virtually irradiate their IT or high-tech character. Basically, any text decoration project is, first of all, the unique idea, implemented through a skillful use of available image and text manipulating tools and techniques.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
