TUTORIAL: how to create an electric text effect

Today let's make a text effect that looks electric. It can be useful in many situations.

You can get it by going to this free text maker and setting it as told below:
- Text: electric (set your own text);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 5;
- Background color: 000000;
- Font name: Aarco.

So we get this effect (click for full size viewing):

Extra tips:
- it's important to use a dark background to enforce the lightening effect. A dark blue can be a very good choice too;
- you can choose among more than 400 font faces, but I think this one is very nice for this case, because its shape reminds thunderbolts;
- you can easily get many interesting text effects by taking advantage of this big list of text effects.
