In this tutorial im going to show you how to make a 3D looking text in just a few simple steps.
First, open a new document about 300x140, with a white background.
Select the Type Tool, and select a big bold font. I used Arial Black.
Set the color to #999999 and enter some text like this:
And rotate the text like this (Edit->Transform->Rotate):
Enter the free transform mode (Edit->Free Transform) and scale/move the text down like this:
And now over to the fun part, make sure the text layer is selected and hold CTRL + ALT and tap the UP-ARROW about 10 times.
Now, as you can see you just copied the text layer ten times, so select the layer on the top:
Right click on it and enter the "Blending Options..."
And add a darker color:
If you want to move the text around a bit, just select all the layers by:
Clicking on the one at the top and then on the bottom text layer while holding shift.
And press CTRL + E to merge the layers, or Layer->Merge Layers.
And that's it. Pretty cool right?
