Creating 3D Text Effects in PhotoshopWritten by Mart Gil Abareta
We know that with Photoshop, we can do everything that we want in terms of web and graphic design. This software has become a valuable tool in every designer’s works of art. Now, I have here procedure from www.absolutecross.com in creating a pretty cool text effect to make it seem to melt into or "pop out of" your website's background.
First, you must open a new document and make it right size for text you will be working with. Select a color from color picker that’s brighter than color as your text will be. Click on arrows to interchange foreground to your background color. Go back to color picker and select a shade that’s darker than what you’ve chosen for foreground color.
Then, fill up still empty image with texture which will be utilized for website’s background. Open texture and select all by pressing Ctrl+A. Now, click on EditDefine Pattern and then close texture. By going back to your main graphic, select EditFillPattern. Uncheck Preserve Transparency and set opacity to 100% and mode to normal. Your graphic must now be filled up with texture of your website's background.
Next, choose Type Mask Tool, type in word/s you want to incorporate in your graphic in input field, and click OK. Then, have a selection of your words on your image. Make a new layer and fill text selection with foreground color by pressing Alt+Delete. While text is still selected, make another layer and repeat texture fill process we utilized earlier for background within text selection – only this time with a different texture. See if you need more textures, too.
