TUTORIAL: how to create a cool neon text effect

You will learn how to get easily a very nice stylized neon text effect. It's really beautiful and this is not the kind of effect usually you find out there.

To make this one, first open this free text effect. I suggest you use it with this values:
- Text: NEON (type the text you want);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 5;
- Background color: 000000;
- Font name: CampGranadaNF.

If you made as explained above, you get this neon effect (click for full size viewing):

Extra tips:
- you must use thick font faces, or the internal lighted lines will not be rendered;
- choose a dark background to emphasize the glow outside the letters;
- you can get countless amazing light/glow text effects by using these free text generators.

Is there a text effect you would like to see here? You can ask for it commenting here or sending me an e-mail.
