Create an Exploding Light Text Effect
Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
In this tutorial I wanted to take a look at a couple of techniques for an exploding text effect.
For some dim backgrounds, it is required a special sharp and lighting effect to match with. You can have a try on this idea, in which, some blurred colors have been applied on particular direction in order to stand out the text.
You can spend few minutes to achieve a nice silver text effect. It is mainly created using “layer style” function inside Photoshop Settings. At the end, you can design a simple dark background to match with the text.
Different topics would need different text effects to emphasize your theme. Folding text effect can be certainly applied to various topic sites e.g. education. You can also use the same idea to create different style of text.
This is a strong and eye-catching text effect, though relatively simple to create. We will use techniques including bevel and emboss styles, pattern overlays, and combining different techniques to mock-up the text into a related background.
It may be difficult for you to pick a suitable text effect for space. However, this retro text effect is implemented using brushes and layer style settings so that you can follow this easily and adjust the color to suit for different purpose backgrounds.
