Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
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 project typography onto a complex surface. It will start with some basic text, give it a little perspective, place it into an image (an abstract composition in this case, but the techniques involved are universally applicable) and apply some effects to add depth and a sense of movement.
Text effect is very important that can improve your overall design appearance. If you would like to create a even more professional text effect, you can use illustrator to initiate your text design, then use photoshop for color and lighting adjustment.
