Cubed text

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a Cubed text effect. This effect uses the Mosaic filter to create the cubed text.

Cubed text

Step 1

Create a new Photoshop document with the dimension 640 x 480 and fill the background colour in black.

Step 2

Choose the text tool with white text and type your message on the canvas. I have used impact font type, but you can use whatever font you wish.

Step 3

Select Filter > Pixelate > Mosaic. If you get a message about rasterizing the type then click ok, and give the cell size of 5 squares.

Step 4

Select Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen and repeat this step 3 – 4 times by pressing Ctrl + F. And merge the layers together by selecting the layers and pressing Ctrl + E.

Step 5

Now select Image > Adjustment > Hue/Saturation and adjust the three sliders to your liking. Make sure you have selected the ‘Colorize’ tab. I have selected 108 for the hue, 86 for saturation and -5 for the lightness.

You should now have a cubed text effect.
