Scrabble Tiles Text in Pixelmator
I always liked scrabble text, so I tried to make it in Pixelmator. This is easier than I was thinking, and it’s so fun to create words, it’s like a game. You can there put your own pattern, also you can add details you like and make it more beautiful!
Open Pixelmator and create a new document. For size I’m using 560x473px. After that go to Layer > New Layer… > Choose Picture… and pick up Pattern image. Now you can delete Background Layer because we don’t need it.
Now with Rounded Rectangle Shape Tool create a shape like in picture below. Color choose light yellow, and with a little shadow in the right side.
Now duplicate Shape layer, then change color to white and remove shadow. After that put this layer below Shape layer, and make a thin white line with it above yellow rectangle – it makes a illuminated place, like in picture below:
Now, add the letter you want inside the tile. Use the color Black and any font you like. The font used here is Code Bold and the size is 260.
Now add a new empty layer, then with Brush Tool paint something like in picture below, then put it below “P” layer.
Now change Blending to Soft Light and then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian and use 27.0 px for the Radius.
Using this example you can create letters and words you want.
