Pimp your text with photoshop

17 February 2011

Very trendy, pimp everything with photoshop. That is why we are gonna pimp our text in photoshop. In this tutorial you'll learn how to make a simple layer-style for your pimpin' text in photoshop.

Start a new document and typ a text with a thick font (our example file is 500x500 pixels). Don't use a small font like Arial Narrow. It won't work on a small font.

Add an Inner Glow with these values:

Add a Bevel and Emboss with these values:

Add a Gradient Overlay with these values:

Add a Pattern Overlay with these values:

Use this pattern for the "pattern overlay":

And finally, add a Border with these values:

The copy yhe layer and "rasterize" it (right-click on the layer and choose the rasterize option):

Then reduce the height of the rasterized layer (CTRL+T)

Delete the layerstyles from this rasterized layers, so the black text remains. If the text is not black, you have to mae it black first (CTRL+U -> Saturization 0):

Then move the layer with the back text underneat the layer you created first (drag it in the layers panel) and apply a gaussian blur van 3,2. Move the blurred text behind the layer with the layerstyle. Align it like this:

Choose a white, star-shaped brush (comes with photoshop).

Make a new layer above all others and apply the star-shaped brush on the edges (don't use it to much!). This applies a bling effect and your finished!!
