Text effect example 1

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a simple text effect using various blending options. I have created shiny text with a black outline for this tutorial.

Text effect example 1

Step 1

Open a new Photoshop document with the size 640 x 480 dimensions. Then select the horizontal text tool and type your message on the canvas. I have used Arial font for my text effect, but you can choose whatever kind of font you wish.

Step 2

Select Layer > Layer Style > Blending options and add the following settings for each style. The first option you need to check is the ‘Drop Shadow’. I have left this option with the default values.

Check the ‘Inner Shadow’ option and change the opacity to 30%, the distance to 10, and the size to 2 PX.

Check the ‘Bevel and Emboss’ option and change the depth to 110% and the size to 10 PX.

Check the ‘Color Overlay’ option and change the colour to #f00000.

Check the ‘Stroke’ option and change the size to 2px and the colour to #000000.

You should get the following text effect.
