Starship Dedication Plaque PSD by FuryofaSeraph Starship Dedication Plaque PSD by FuryofaSeraph
Here is how this file works.

In your layers panel you will find a bunch of folders, two of them grouped up above, five others below.

All you have to worry about is the top two.
- The first of the two is called "Deltas" this is where you find all your silver arrow-shapes that are all trek-like.
- the second one is for all the other shapes that add to the arrow-shapes. this is what makes your plaque different era's in my opinion.
All you have to do is select what shapes you want to be visible on your plaque by hiding/unhiding them

Now, just below that (in the Green layer called Shadow) this is where it gets tricky. First you must clear this layer, CTRL+A and DEL. Next you have to CTRL+Click the "deltas" and "backs'' layers that you have visible, then fill that selection on the Shadow Layer with Black. Looks much better doesnt it.

Lastly, is the Color layer (marked in blue) all you have to do is fill this with the color you want your plaque to be shaded. Have fun with this. I reccomend silver, (which you will find in my Metallic Swatch file) or blue, or copper works really well.

All the other layers are pretty straight forward, just edit them with the text tool.

Have Fun

One last thing: Please credit me if you use it for your own plaque.

I used your template here to make a few of my own so far, using The GiMP. I uploaded them to my Imgur account, here is the link if you want to take a look. :)

I'm new to this, so this is probably a dumb question.  I've downloaded the PSD onto my Tablet, will it work when I transfer it to my laptop, or is there an app I can use?

I'd like to say that I think this template is Fantastic. Not only is the customisation levle Epic, but the feel is just perfect. It makes creating Dedication Plaques so easy!

One thing I do want to ask about, is there a sharper version of the font you use avalible? I've found that when scalled up for the ships name at least, the font starts getting a little....wavey.

Also, I added in two collums and matched the names to those on the official Defiant Dedication Plaque, as well as scaled the whole thing up. I have it sized to 1488 by 1080, and it still looks stunning :)

In the part about the shadow, what do you mean by fill that section with black? I'm slightly confused...

I'm having some trouble doing the Shadow bit. Doing CTRL+A DEL makes the layer pure white, instead just selecting it and DEL makes it transparent. I can CTRL+Click the "deltas" and "backs" layers I have visible, but it won't let me fill anything because it's more than one layer selected, nor do I know how to apply it to just the Shadow layer. And when loading the file it tries to update the text layers, which moves them to the right abit and makes the text look worse in some places.

I really don't have the time. The photoshop template is fairly intuitive - all you have to do is edit the lines of text that is in there.

This is awesome! I do apologize for having to ask, but, for the text, what font did you use? I'm using the PSD in GIMP, so, due to the differences between the two programs, I had re make the text layers, and the closest thing I can come is Times New Roman, but it just doesn't look right.

Hyperion Class with our own stats, but we use the Century Class as picture.
[link]
(We don't have anyone with us who can use 3D Programs, so we make our pictures with Bridge Commander)

Its a Deep Space Explorer with the first working experimental Transwarp Drive (ok, basically its a fusion of Transwarp and Quantum Slipstream) of the UFP.

Our RP is timed at the begin of the 25th Century and we have a slightly different timeline (Voyager never came back, "These are the Voyages" from Ent is not part of our story, and others)

Every one as he likes :)

I like our timeframe (for instance because it allows me to introduce OUR timelines version of Nero, chief of a Mining Planet on a Romulan Mining world who's first action upon meeting the Ships Crew is to hug to Captain and proudly show around Holos from his Kids...freaking said Captain's player totally out in the process)
