In this tutorial it will show you how to make that cool aqua text that is on my header. In the end you text will look like the thumbnail as shown. A little to the background to make it more interesting is added.
This tutorial is a great exercise in using the dodge and burn tool as well as working with selections. Take a white to black gradient set to radial, and drag a gradient from the left side of the X where the reflection appears on the X to about 200 pixels past where the reflection leaves on other side of the X.
In this tutorial, the type-effects shows how to create the above image. The key is to create the letters in a 3D package first as individual characters, then bring them into Photoshop for further post work.This example has a few more details, but you can take it much further.
In this tutorial we are going to take some very basic principles of light and shade to make a rather impressive looking text effect. Finally we duplicate the top lighting layer one more time and set it to opacity, then click the Add Layer Mask button on the layers palette again and draw a linear white to black gradient from top left to bottom right. This makes the extra lighting layer fade off as it goes down right.
In this tutorial we’ll be creating a smokey night effect on text to give it an eerie supernatural sort of feel. Finally to give it a more eerie feel I added a layer above all the others and with a large brush painted some green on top, then set the layer blending mode to to make it so that the image is a blue-green colouring.
It uses a little Illustrator for the text and a lot of Photoshop to burn up the screen! Although it looks complicated the process is actually very straight forward. I used only three or four filters, brushes and of course the Layer Styles. As always, the idea is to play around with Photoshop to get your own unique results.
One of the best features in Photoshop is the Layer Styles. We can create all sorts of effects – plastic, glass, water, icy, metallc, and many more. In this tutorial I will show you how to create a gold text effect. Sometimes just changing some values can create a totally different effect. For this tutorial I created gold, but if you change the gradient color to variations of grey you will have silver instead of gold.
In this tutorial It will show you how to create a sort of grunge poster. We will learn how to make some elements look a bit dirty, create textures and add some depths to the elements using shadows and blend modes. This time we use that filter to create stains in our design a totally different approach like when we used it creating light effects.
