NOTE: You will also need Animation Shop for this tutorial.
Open your program and create any size canvas (your choice). I'm using a simple 400x400 for my quick demonstration.
Add a new layer to your canvas and write your chosen name.
Once there, duplicate the layer so that you have TWO name layers. Hide your first layer for later. This is so you have a name to duplicate from.
Next, grab your eraser tool and start erasing the second name layer, as if you were writing your name by hand:
Save this first stop as 1.gif. In this way, you'll know what order to add them in when we go to Animation Shop.
Open Animation Shop and, from the "file" drop down menu select "Animation Wizard".
Upload to your Photobucket or Fotki and then add to your widgets!
