How to Set Your Text on Fire

It's not really Web 2.0, but I enjoy this Photoshop tutorial. It's amazingly easy to make your words look like their on fire. I may try this on a white background some time as well.

Blaze Your Name In Photoshop - metacafe

After tackling this with a smaller canvas, I had to adjust the following:
  1. Used size 53 Scriptina (same font, different size)
  2. Created new document at 165 pixels x 150pixels
  3. Set Gaussian Blur to 1.3 pixels
  4. Used an initial blur of 17 pixels, then fine work done with 8 pixels
Not bad for less than five minutes work...
