Hi, I'm new here and I have what may be a confusing question:

How do you finalize an icon that makes it so that various layers you've added don't stick out so much (mostly noticable with fonts)? Not necessarily merging the layers together, but making them look like one layer instead of various layers in one icon. I'm asking this because whenever I try to add text on an icon, it seems to stick out horribley when my goal is to make it a part of the icon. Maybe you add a texture or something? Another way I could put this is that for the people who make icons that involve text, what do you guys do to finalize the icon when you're finished?

I use CS2 photoshop by the way. Thanks in advance.
