Solitaire Text Effect
Welcome to PimpMyCom's Photoshop tutorials. In this tutorial you will learn how to take regular text
in Photoshop and apply a set of cool effect to end up with a Solitaire Text Effect.
Ok lets get this tutorial going, open up a new document with a transparent background. any size will do I will
be working with a 400x200. Make a new layer and fill in the background with any color thatís close to white
I will be using FAFAFA which is basically white, the effect will work fine on white
it just spices it up to use different colors.
ok now lets put some text on the document any font and any color I will be using the PimpMyCom font with black.
Ok now we have our text time to apply the effects. Right click on your TEXT layer and click
on Blending Options.
Now we are going to click on 3 styles in here. Drop Shadow/Gradient Overlay/Stroke
Now in each style we need to apply different options, please follow the images below for each style.
Now click Gradient and choose a preset
The effect can be done with any preset i will be using this one.
When your done applying all the styles click on OK and your document should look like this.
Ok now its time to duplicate the layer.. go over the layer in the layer window and click CTRL + J,
this will automatically duplicate the layer. Now once you have duplicated the layer once select the
move tool and hold SHIFT and drag the layer down just a bit....repeat this step 5-10 times and you
will have a end effect like this.
this is how it would look with a different background
you can also move it to the left or right abit and youíll have something like this.
