Introduction: How to Make Glowing Text in Paint.NET

First of all this is my first instructable, so don't be too harsh.

Things you will need (both are freeware.)

Paint.NET

Pyrochild Plugins] (We'll only be using the Outline Objects plugin today, but it's good to have them all.)

A brain.

Step 1: Open Paint.NET

Just open Paint.NET, shouldn't be to hard to figure out.

Step 2: Make the Background

Color the background any color you want. I really don't care what you do, you could make it a solid color, you could use gradients, or you could even use an image.

Step 3: Write Your Text

Now, add a new layer with whatever text you want. (You could even do a picture.) I like doing messier, more graffiti type fonts for this, but it's your choice.

Step 4: Adding the Glow

Go to Effects>Object>Outline object and set the softness to 255 and choose whatever color you want. Also, set the width to whatever suites you.

Step 5: Final Product

Here we have it, the final product. Thanks for taking your time to read this instructable, I hope it helped.
