  2. I promised Nick to write this tutorial but it took me a bit longer do to much work I have :angry:

    Ok here we go:

    1. Open a new image File - New with transparent background.

    Fill this layer with the your choise of your color, but not to dark.

    Now select the Type Tool typebtn.png and use the same color that you used on your backround.

    Type the wanted text and click ok.

    Ctrl + leftclick your text layer to select the text.

    Your image should now look like this


    2. Now go to Layer - Rasterize - Type

    Use Brightness/Contrast to darken the text a little bit.

    Image - Adjust - Brighntess/Contrast.

    Brightness: -10

    Contrast: 0

    Now we add some inner shadow to the text to give the text that chiseled look.

    Go to Layer - Layer Style - Inner Shadow.

    Use the following setting:

    Mode: Multiply

    Opacity: 75 %

    Angle: 120

    Distance: 7

    Choke: 7

    Size: 7

    If you use the effect on a bigger text you may want to increase the distance a little bit.

    Your image should now look like this.


    3. With the text still selected create a new Layer layerbtn.png and name it white shadow.

    Turn off the text layer by clicking on the eye icon eyebtn.png

    Select White as your foreground color and fill your selection.

    Edit - Fill - Forground color

    Deselect with (Ctrl + D).

    Still at the White Shadow layer go to Filter - Blur - Gaussian Blur - Radius: 2 pixels.

    Your image should now look like this


    4. Select the Move Tool movetool.png and move the white shadow layer 2 pixels down and 2 pixels to the right using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

    Turn on the text/cutout layer again.

    Turn down the opacity on the white shadow layer till you get your wanted effect.

    I turned the opacity down to 40 %.

    Your image should now look like this


    5. To get rid off that "plastic" look we'll add some nifty cool effects ;)

    Go to layer 1 (background layer).

    Duplicate this layer by dragging it down to the Create New Layer icon.

    You now should have a layer 1 copy.

    Turn off the new layer and go back to layer 1.

    Now go to Filter - Noise - Add Noise - Amount 25, Uniform and Monochromatic checked.

    Select the text/cutout layer and apply the same effect.

    Now go to the Layer 1 Copy layer and turn down the opacity to 90 %.

    Do the same with the text copy layer

    Your final image should look like this


    I hope you like this little tutorial and have fun by doing it on your own :rolleyes:
