Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
In this tutorial, it aimed to teach you how to achieve the all important glowing effect for the texts. Here we will create a style the designer named it into ‘Scanline Text’ which is basically text which glows like bright scanlines, with a smart reflection as well. You can go through this, then using the idea for your own text.
You may feel bored to use normal text for your document or paper work. To produce something different, you can use some nice text effect for your wording. This tutorial is simple and nice, as most of the steps are done in “layer style”. No special techniques are required.
For bright and warm background, it is ideally to be applied this transparent text effect as the text would not distract your reader too much. You can also choose some style fonts as initiation for your style text creation.
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.
