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.
There are thousand of text effects, but many of them are very normal. To design some outstanding text effects, you better look at more samples to inspire yourself. This golden text is a nice idea and suitable for some treasury topic.
Different background or topic would need different styles of text effect to be applied to. There are some standard text effects on the market, somehow, professional designers always design their tailor-made text effect.
Using some simple fonts, you can turn them into a nice word art by adding simple effects. Fracturing effect is a great idea to turn your font to be special. The idea is to apply a fracturing background to your text plus color adjustment. You can also add shine on the text’s edge.
In this tutorial, it will teach you how to make a Richly Ornate Typographic Illustration by Illustration and Photoshop. Except text fonts, this is also a good idea to present the text.
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.
