In this tutorial you’ll learn how to make a very simple text effect with just a few layer styles. This text, though simple, is rather sleek and will add some “pop” to your images that plain, flat text will lack.
1. The Background
Prepare the background for the text. I used #485973 as the background color and I also added some gradients in the background.
2. The Text
Add in the text.
I used Helvetica Neue (An expensive font) with the color #b9c9de.
3. The Layer Styles
If you’re a beginner at Photoshop, to get into your Blending Options or Layer Styles, Right Click your layer and click “Blending Options…”
Apply the following Layer Styles:
That’s it. That’s a very quick and easy way to make a sleek text effect.
