it involves using an awesome screen saver (called mystify), adobe photoshop and a little bit of luck.
with my name it's relatively easy do this, because it's small and the letters are basic - so you should always use 'short' names.
Samuel becomes Sam in my case.
Johnathon becomes John.
and so on...
Step 1: What you need:
Vista or a screen saver like Mystify in another operating system
luck, timing and the ability to concentrate over a potentially long period of time.
Step 2: Setting up...
follow the text.
1 right click, personalise
2 Screen saver
3 scroll down to mystify, then press aply, cause it's the best screen saver.
Step 3: Setting up... continued
make sure you have the layers option up (window, layers) and the tools, which should be a default.
now put on some good music.
Step 4: Getting some graphics
press preview on the mystify 'program'
DO NOT MOVE YOUR MOUSE OR PRESS ANYTHING.
The only thing that you can press is Print Screen. Ha ha! this is how we get the graphics.
Wait and wait until you see a shape that could make up a letter in your name, then press Print Screen.
flip to photoshop and copy what you just image dumped.
if you like what you see and it makes up part of your letter... save it.
It is always better to have a full letter in one print screen than half a letter. Why? cause the ones in the same screen will always look smoother.
got all your letters?
