One of my forum members asked me how I make names with images in them
so here is how I make them.  There are probably a dozen different ways to do 
this but this is just one way that i know and find easiest.

Open blank canvas 700 x 700 
floodfill white

text tool
use a blocky font
I am using GramophoneNF
size 120, color black
create as vector
convert to raster

select all, float, defloat
choose two colors from your tube(s)
make a fore/back gradient
linear, angle 45, repeats 4
new raster layer
floodfill with your gradient

copy your tube(s)
paste as new layer(s)
resize & position to your liking

selections invert
hit delete on each tube layer

merge all tube layers together
change blend mode to lumincance
adjust blur, gaussian blur 8
change blend mode to screen (or whatever you like)

selections expand by 2
new raster layer
floodfill with background colour
add noise, 100, uniform & monochrome checked
drag this layer below your gradient layer

selections contract by 2
new raster layer
drag this layer to the top of your layer palette
effects, eye candy 5 Impact, glass

make noise layer active
add dropshadow 2,5,50,8,black

add name and copyright information 
delete white background layer
and black name layer
merge visible
crop and save as png
