Hey! I'm Minecelot. Today, I will teach you how to get pixel art text.


1. Get Paint.net or whatever software that has anti-aliasing like Photoshop.

3. Type text.
Type the text.

RSupertheGreat, I know the images are not working. I just don't know why.
By the way, (to me) you reply to almost every single part here. Good Job!
Thanks!

Other than you are using a broken hosting image, use attachments instead. If you want to host a image, use Imgur or Photobucket.

Minecelot, Please don't use Google Drive for image publishing or try to make the folder which is public available, and then make public link to EVERY image file!
As easier alternate especially for image sharing you may use, for example, imgur.com:
- register account (that VERY important or guest-uploaded images will be auto-deleted after few days!)
- upload images while you logged in
- just use direct links to the images

Ok. Thank you so much, Wohlstand. There are just lots of image hosting sites out there. :)
