I'm customizing the design of a Shopify store and one of the templates uses this image as a logo:

How could I write a word using that same style and font with Paint.NET?

Thanks for your help!

The font is Lombriz. Someone who know Paint.NET can answer as regards the styling.

Just use this awesome tool to upload it and find out! http://new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont

If that image is transparent, as it appears to be, you might have to put a black background behind the text and resave so there is more contrast for the tool to figure it out.

Style is a gradient drop-shadow and white text color.

While this is not the same font, I've recreated the image as best I could, using Paint.NET

enter image description here

The process is as follows:

  1. Create a new layer & choose black.
  2. Type your text using the text tool, be sure to pick the proper font, size & style
  3. Duplicate this layer and choose Adjustments > Invert Colors.
  4. Choose your first layer of text and then the Move Tool.
  5. Using your arrow keys, press right arrow twice & down arrow twice to get the offset shadow look.
  6. Now, choose Adjustments > Hue/Saturation
  7. In this menu, slide the Lightness slider to the right until you get the gray color that you're looking for. (Around 50)
  8. Next, choose Effects > Blurs > Gaussian Blur...
  9. In this menu, choose the appropriate amount of blur (most likely only 2)
  10. For the fade at the top, add a new layer to the very top of your Layers window.
  11. Choose the Rectangle Select tool and draw a box spanning the full width of the layer and down to just below the half way point of the text.
  12. Next, fill this selection with White by choosing the Paint Bucket tool and clicking within the selection.
  13. Deselect your new white box by choosing one of the selection tools and clicking anywhere
  14. Again, choose Effects > Blurs > Gaussian Blur...
  15. This time, choose a large amount of blur (around 90)

Congrats, you've now got your logo!
