    Depends on if your text is to sparkle as is (static) or is to be animated.

    If animated, one only needs to change position and frequency to achieve a sparkle effect.

    I gave the sparkle thing a try but when I export it does not look as nice as the original, kinda of blurred. Whats the best method for exporting to make it look like the original?

    Maybe this will help Sparkle GEL Guest Tutorial.

    As for getting your exported image to look as good as what you see on the screen, work at 1:1 (100% Zoom). Then what you see should be pretty much what you get on export.

    "Intbel" ... aka Raymond. "Can't" is not an option.

    Compliance is futile. Resistance is futile. Just do your own thing an' ignore 'em.

    Or you could make them from the quick shapes star if you want bigger sparkles.
