9. Once you have done that its time to insert logos, Google the club name and you should find a logo easily, right click on it copy, then paste it into photoshop.
View attachment 116135 make sure the badge is below the texture layer or it will look ugly.

10. To get rid of the white around white around the logo, we use a tool called the magic wand View attachment 116136 Click this logo

11. Now, click on the white bits you want to get rid of, and press backspace <--

12. Press and hole Ctrl+T and it should bring up a "resizer" square around your badge, Hold Shift and drag a corner until its a decent size.

13. Press View attachment 116137 that allows you to move a layer, now move your logo into position. View attachment 116141

14. Now we need a sponser, Google for the sponser company and get the logo, and do the same as before, magic wand the white bits away, ctrl+T to resize then move it into position.

15. use colour overlay to change the sponser colour.

16.View attachment 116142 now save the file as.png

How do you resize a kit so that it works in game ?
Might be worth adding that to the tutorial.

Don't understand how to resize the logo. Copy and pasted it into the same PS document as the kit, used magic wand to get rid of the white bits, then CTRL+ T and SHIFT, but when I drag the corner down it just drags an empty box and the logo doesn't change?

EDIT: Got it another way.

Another thing, how do I change the sponsor? So if I want to put in an 02 sponsor for example, how do I change just the 02 and not the background?
