Punch Through Text Effect in Photoshop

December 28, 2015

In this video I use text and Shape layers to create a really simple, but effective, text effect inside of Photoshop. While I'm there I'll also use a few layer effects to make the text a little more interesting including Bevel, Drop Shadow and the sadly underestimated Satin (I like Satin) [More]

Creating a Chiseled Text Effect in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements

February 11, 2013

We'll be using Photoshop layer styles to achieve the effect as well as the somewhat obscure Type Mask tool. If you're not familiar with this tool, it's a little like a cross between the Type tool and Quick Mask; we can type our text as usual but when it's committed, instead of creating a layer with the text it creates a selection; this is perfect for the technique as we do not need to work on the text directly. You can follow the original tutorial using the link above but change the dimensions to 1000x200 pixels to create the correct document size. If you don't want to start the image from scratch, it can be downloaded here. [More]
