abduzeedo's blog

A few days ago I took sometime to try some tutorials I read such as the really cool Dramatic Text on Fire Effect in Photoshop by Collis from PSDTUTS, and put some 3D typography ideas into practice. My idea was to create a 3D text with fire coming from the inside of the document like a hole. Step 1
The first thing you will have to do is create the 3D text. To do that you can use Illustrator. It has a very nice 3D filter and it will work just fine. Type the text you want and go to Effect>3D>Extrude & Bevel. Change the Position to Off-Axix Bottom. Then you just rotate the X,Y, and X Axis until you get the result you want. Follow the image below for reference. Tip: It's very important that you select Draw Hidden Faces. Otherwise Illustrator will not create some faces that will be very important for the end result.

Step 2
Now you will have to expand the 3D effect in order to select and change the color of the faces you want. Go to Obejct>Expand Appearance. First select the top faces, and move them away. Then select just the outer faces and fill them with black.

Step 3 .Photoshop .

Position it in the middle of the document and reduce its size. Copy the 3D text without the top faces and paste it in Phothoshop. Step 4 With the Magic Wand Tool (W) select the black faces and delete them.Create a new document in Photoshop and fill the background with Black. .

Step 5 Go to Images>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation. change the color of the text to Orange. .

Then just change the Blend Mode to Color Dodge .Step 6 Make sure you have black and white for the background and foreground colors. resize the layer.. Then go to Filter>Render>Clouds.. After that. Make it smaller just to cover the word.

Step 7 .

. use Stroke with 1px Size.Now create a new layer on top of the others and fill it with black. (1-4) Step 8 Apply a Layer Style to the 3D word. then with the Brush Tool (B) select a regular brush. and white for the color. like 0% hardness. Then just paint over some ares to make them brighter. very soft. 40% Opacity and Black for the color.

It will be necessary in order to make some of the light effects work.Step 9 Let's add a Gradient Overlay to the background. Use Radial for the Style and use Black and #412e1d(brown) for the colors. .

Step 10 Now duplicate the 3D layer and go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur use 30px for the Radius. Position this layer beneath the Hell layer. .

Step 11
With the Ellipse Tool(U) create an ellipse like the image below, then go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. Use 70px for the Radius. After that, just change the Blend Mode to Overlay.

Step 12
Create a new layer on top of the Backgroud layer. Fill it with white and go to Filter>Texture>Texturizer. Use 60% for Scaling, 15 for the Relief and Top for the Light. Change the Blend Mode to Multiply.

Step 13 .

Or you can check the Great Wood Textures at http://abduzeedo.hu/photo/947335. Paste the image in the document and resize it to make it cover the gradient area. . You can find the one I used at http://www. After that just change the Blend Mode to Multiply. so I used a wooden texture.com/great-wood-textures.sxc. Move the vertices to apply a nice perspective to the wood.Here I wanted to add a nice texture to the floor. Then go to Edit>Transform>Distort.

.

sxc.Step 14 . .hu/photo/985088 and paste it in the document. To do that I will use what I learnt from the awesome Dramatic Text on Fire Effect in Photoshop by Collis from PSDTUTS. Then with the Eraser Tool (E) delete some areas. Download the image at http://www. Make sure that it's in front of the other layes. Basically we will get a photo of fire with flames and use the Warp tool to create different variations of the flame.Fire Now let's create the fire. Also go to Edit>Transform>Warp and distort the flame to get a nice effect. Then just change the Blend Mode to Screen.com.

.

.Step 15 Create more flames using the same technique. you can even use the Smudge Tool (R) to change the form of the flames.

.

Then change the Blend Mode to Soft Light. Then you can resize the layer a bit to make the smoke smaller. . With the Eraser Tool (E) delete some areas and just leave smoke over the text. Make sure you have selected Black and White for the Background and Foreground colors.Step 16 Create a new layer in front of the other layers and go to Filter>Render>Clouds.

this time however use Hard Light for the Blend Mode. . This step will create a more volumetric smoke to the image.Step 17 Repeat the same thing as the previous step.

sxc. Place the image on the document .hu. To do that let's use another image from sxc.Step 18 Let's create the cracks on the floor.hu/photo/995884. you can download it at http://www.

Then like we did before with the wood texture. then change the Blend Mode to Multiply. . go to Edit>Transform>Distort.and resize it to cover the gradient area. Distort the image until you get a nice perspective.

Right after that select the Magic Wand Tool (W) and select the black part of the image.Step 19 This step might look complicated but it's not. Now just apply a Layer Style. Go to Image>Adjustments>Invert. Use #ffba00 for the color. Now go to Image>Adjustments>Levels and use 40. Duplicate the crack layer and change the blend mode to Normal again. Actually it's quite simple. . Photoshop will select all the black from the layer. 1. then go to Image>Adjustments>Desaturate. This will invert the colors so what was once black will now become white and vice-versa. Then go to Select>Similar. Then delete the blacks and you will have the cracks in white. and 226.00. Go to Layer>Layer Styles>Color Overlay.

Leave just a small area close to the word.Step 20 Select the Eraser Tool (E) with a big soft brush. use 0% hardness. Then start deleting the layer. After that go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian .

Then the last thing here. Step 21 . so it will create a nice 3D effect. move this layer 2 pixels left and bottom. Use a small value 0.5%.Blur.

If you want you can duplicate it one or two more times to make the effect brighter. there are really great tutorials out there. It's basically a mix of tutorials and techniques. It's all about playing and looking on the web. Conclusion You can add more cracks or change the flames. The idea of this tutorial was to create an image using fire coming from hell. now it's up to you. like a deeper place using 3D typography. this time use a greater value and change the Blend Mode to Color Dodge. .Here you can duplicate the yellow crack layer and apply a another gaussian blur.

2008 Photoshop In this tutorial I will walk through the steps I used to create this illustration to bring alive the word “collide.” I hope you will find useful the techniques I will cover: . Oct 27.How to Create Explosive Typographic Effects in Cinema 4D Mon.extruding text in Cinema 4d .” While you may not find yourself needing to recreate the word “collide.

exporting to photoshop from Cinema 4d ..various layer modes applied in Photoshop for great light effects (A basic knowledge of Cinema 4d and Photoshop is required) STEP 1: Creating 3d text I created a new document in C4d and added some text with the built in text tool.unique color enhancing techniques in Photoshop .using the explosion deformer in Cinema 4d .using displacement maps in Cinema 4d . .

I typed the word COLLIDE in the Attributes manager. .

.I applied Extrude Nurbs by making it a parent of my text.

.Parent/child relationship shown above in my Objects Manager.

There’s a small problem at this point: The word “collide” is treated as one object and I want to manipulate the individual letters. . In order to do that I need to Explode Segments from the Function menu.

Now each part of each letter is broken into individual splines and I can extrude them separately as well as manipulate them. .

I chose Connect.On a couple of the letters I need to Connect the inside spline and outside spline together. . I selected the 2 splines and right clicked to pull up a menu. The “O” and the “D” need to be connected because they are 2 individual splines as a result of the Explode Segments function I applied. Once I’ve connected them I am ready to extrude each individual letter and place them where I want in my composition.

I have applied an Extrude nurbs to each letter now. . See my object window for clarity.

.And now I’ve named each nurb so that I know what letter it is.

. This gives a nice looking edge to each letter.Next I will click on each letter’s Extrude Nurbs and adjust the cap to be a Fillet Cap. I chose 3 Steps with a Radius of 3.

Next I selected each letter and changed it’s position and rotation into a random spot that I felt would work for this composition. STEP TWO: Creating reflective material for my 3d text .

I created a new material that I will plan to tweak a bit later to get better results. and a color. But for now I know I will want to add reflection. environment. .

My reflection is set to 35% and I did the same for environment as well. These are just settings I am randomly choosing and require some tweaking as the project progresses. .

.I added a light and and a sky to my scene.

.I created a material to apply to my sky. There is definitely a lot of experimenting that can be done with what you can place in the sky and how it will look in the reflections of the material on the text. I used a picture of a sky.

.I applied the new material to my sky and experimented with the Projection method. Cubic ended up being what I chose based on the way it looked as it reacted with my text.

it allowed me to get the results I wanted with ease. You can load the same image of a sky into your reflection and environment materials but the results will look different than using a sky in c4d to be reflected. I can change the projection method of the material on my sky. . I’ve found that I have more control over the reflections this way.Here is the result of my sky being reflected on my text. I can rotate the sky. Ultimately.

.My text material wasn’t quite colorful enough so I added a tint of blue to the original material.

Much better for what I am looking to accomplish. STEP THREE: Using a displacement map to create my collision effect .Here is the result of adding the tint of blue.

.I copied several of my letter from the word “collide” and will apply a displacement map to those to create the collision.

I chose “brick” from the preset surfaces. Usually something black and white will work best but it is not completely necessary.I copied my reflective material that I created for the word “collide” and then I checked the “displacement” box and loaded a texture. Cinema 4d has built in textures you can experiment with for the displacement. . I’ve also used black and white jpegs of stripes or other patterns that I’ve created in Illustrator.

This is definitely a step that I could get lost in time experimenting with different heights. . textures. and even projection methods for this material.Here you can see I set the Height to 500m and kept the strength at 100%. Each tweak will give you amazing new results to choose from.

Here is the result of my current settings on the displacement material. STEP FOUR: Adding exploding bits and pieces to my collision .

I increased the Segments to 5.I added a pyramid to my scene that will be used as the object to explode. . the more bits and pieces to explode. The more segments you have.

I will use the Explosion later.For this step I added an Explosion FX. (notice the difference above) .

In order for the Explosion FX to work. . I adjusted the Thickness until I found a setting I liked. it must be a child of the parent (the object to be exploded being the parent).

Here is the what my exploding pyramid looks like after playing with the Time and Strength of the explosion. .

. On one of them I left the settings but moved the position of the pyramid to quickly double the amount of exploding segments. Then on my 3rd copy of the pyramid I added an Explosion rather than Explosion FX. This gave me a bunch of tiny specs of metal flying through the air rather than the large chunks created from my other 2 pyramids.Next I copied my pyramid twice.

STEP FIVE: Adding the final effects in Photoshop .You can see the addition of the tiny explosion particles in this render above.

I made sure Alpha Channel is checked. . Then I make my final render by choosing Render to Picture Viewer from the C4d Render menu.In my Render Settings.

.When I open the rendered .tif in Photoshop it contains the alpha channel I included from C4d.

.I selected the Alpha Channel. deleted the background and added a solid black background on a new layer below my collide artwork.

I wanted a feeling of air & space around my artwork rather than just solid black. so I added clouds from the Photoshop Filter menu. .

.Next I made a selection around a portion of the clouds and feathered the edge using the Refine Edge button.

I deleted the extra part of the clouds with my selection and adjusted the Levels of the layer. .

.I found a picture of smoke to really give this collision illustration some convincing touches. Almost like a car wreck and the engine is over heated.

. “I”) and set it to Screen Mode.Next I copied and pasted the image then inverted it (command.

Then I went in with an airbrush on the layer mask and started erasing different areas of the smoke to make it look like it was interacting with the “collide” rather than just placed on top.I added a layer mask and revealed all. .

Here is what my smoke looks like after erasing bits of it. Next, I copied that layer and repeated the same steps to add some more smoke toward the bottom of my composition.

I felt the piece needed some more color to make it pop so I added a layer and airbrushed pink onto the layer with a large brush size. The layer was set to Soft Light and placed below my “collide” artwork so that it would effect the colors of my background but not my 3d collision.

I wanted to spice things up a bit and throw some lighting into my collision.

desaturated. and set the layer mode to screen.I copied and pasted the lighting into my composition. .

Then I copied my layer of lighting and added a gaussian blur to the copied layer. I set both layers to Add and moved them below the layer I airbrushed with color earlier. . This created some nice color through my lightning streaks.

Once I saved with an Alpha Channel for PHotoshop. CONCLUSION: I created 3d text in Cinema 4d. Then I created an explosion using displacement maps and exploding 3 different copies of my pyramid. I created a background for my 3d artwork by using the cloud filter and then using layer modes to create color and lighting effects. The most challenging part of this is getting the displacement the way you like it.The final result in Photoshop with all the layers displayed. . Experiment with different patterns and different projection methods for the material.

2008 • abduzeedo's blog We have accpeted some tutorials from readers and we think it's really good to open the blog. just send it via email to us. Hey guys this is Creative Volition. Hopefully this tutorial can benefit in your pursuit of becoming a better designer. Because of that. . Just a quick thanks to Abduzeedo for being such a great help to the design community. Step 1 Create a new document at 1200 x 800 pixels with a resolution of 72dpi. In this case we divided our vectors into 3 separate smart objects and dragged them into the Photoshop canvas. so anyone can share their skills with the community. Also a special thanks to everyone at Creative Volition for making our design agency what it is today.Reader Tutorial: Typography Wallpaper in Photoshop by abduzeedo | Oct 26. we will start the "Reader Tutorial" series. Start off by importing all of your vector designs separately into a Photoshop canvas. Here is a quick tutorial from one of our latest designs. an advertising and design agency based out of South Florida. If you have or want to write a tutorial and publish it here on Abduzeedo. Thank you very much and enjoy our first tutorial from Jonathan Connolly.

"Creative Volition Inc. Keep your font in full caps. .Step 2 Hide all vectors and create a new text box. The font we chose was "ITC Avant Garde Gothic". In this case I typed out the name of our company.". especially if your using this one! Continue to copy/paste your text across the text box.

16pt height spacing. Color #404040. Regular.Step 3 Text settings: 16pt font. .

Step 5 Once the text box is filled completely with the copy begin to rotate the box clockwise in about a 45 degree angle.Step 4 Continue to copy/paste the text until it fills the entire canvas. Stretch the box out using the text tool until it expands beyond the canvas size. .

Step 6 Make one of the smart objects visible. Command/Apple click the preview box on the layer panel to create marching ants around your object. .

. hide your smart object so you can see the selection. Step 8 Rasterize the type layer and with the marching ants active on your rasterized layer click Edit > Cut.Step 7 Once the marching ants appear.

Open the Layer Style box and change the "Color Overlay" to white.Step 9 Then click Edit > Paste and align your new layer so all the words connect. .

Open the Layer Styles box and change the inner glow to the following settings and click OK. Drop the fill down to 0%. Place this layer on top of all other layers. Step 11 Lastly create a new layer and fill it with any color. .Step 10 Continue to do the same procedure with your other smart object layers but make sure to always cut from the rasterized layer.

.

.Conclusion Thats it! You should now have a beautiful design in front of you.

Preparations: In this tutorial. drag a circular gradient from the top downwards. Step 1 . Set the foreground color to #004B64 and background to #000000. All rights of these resources belong to their respective owners. . Download the Suddenly Spring brushes here. Using the Radial Gradient tool. we will need the beautiful Suddenly Spring brushes designed by GValkyrie.Setting Up Background: Create a document of size 750×550 pixels.

Step 2b . Fill in the settings shown on the left. . Adjust the values if necessary.Create a 3D Text: Fill in the remaining of settings as shown on the left. Check on Preview so you are able to see the end results from the settings. Set the Fill to be #FFFFFF and type in your first letter with a bold font. Draw a black layer below the white letter so it is visible.Create a 3D Text: Select the letter and go to Effect > 3D > Extrude & Bevel.Create a 3D Text: Open up Adobe Illustrator. Click OK once you are done.Step 2a . Step 2c . I am using Helvetica 75 Bold.

Do the copying and pasting for rest of the letters.Create a 3D Text: Repeat Step 2a to 2c for the rest of your letters. Click on top surface of the first letter. Paste As prompt will appear.Apply Surface Gradient: Select Magic Wand and enter the settings shown on the left.Create a 3D Text: Go back to Photoshop and press Ctrl+V to paste the first letter.Step 2d . Step 3a . Adjust the values in Step 2b to get the letters facing in different directions. . Select the first letter and press on Ctrl+C to copy it. Step 2e . Choose Smart Object.

Step 3b - Apply Surface Gradient:
Click on Refine Edge. Fill in the settings as shown on the left.

Step 3c - Apply Surface Gradient:
Create a new layer above the first letter and name it as Surface. Fill the selection with #000000. Select the new layer and choose Blending Option. Activate Gradient Overlay set the colors to be #003146 and #B8EBFE. Set the Blend Mode to Normal, Opacity to 100%, Style to Linear, Angle to 90 and Scale to 100%.

Step 3d - Apply Surface Gradient:
Repeat Step 3a to 3c for the rest of letters. Try to use different colors of same theme in the gradient overlay, such as shades of green and cyan.

Step 4a - Adding Flowery Swirls:
Load Suddenly Spring brushes. Create another layer above Surface layer and name it as Floral. Set the foreground to #FFFFFF. Select one of the Suddenly Spring brushes and paint over the gradient. Set the Blend Mode of Floral layer to Overlay and opacity to 50%. Select the Floral layer and Ctrl+left click on the Surface layer to load its selection. Click on Layer Mask button.

Step 4b - Adding Flowery Swirls:
Repeat Step 4a for rest of the letters. Create new layers in between each letter to paint some black (#000000) shadows with Soft Brush tool. Mask these shadows the same way done for the Floral layers.

Step 4c - Adding Flowery Swirls:
Create a new layer below all the letters. Set the foreground color to #BEF7A8 and paint some flowers around the letters. Right-click on the layer and choose Blending Options. Activate Outer Glow and set the color to #FFFFFF. Leave the rest of settings as default.

Step 4d - Adding Flowery Swirls:
Repeat Step 4c to plant more flowers around the letters.

Step 4e - Adding Flowery Swirls:
Create a new layer below everything. Set the foreground color to #FFFFFF and paint a large flower. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and set the radius to 6px. Set the Blend Mode of this layer to Overlay.

Step 5a - Glowing Stars:
Create a new layer above everything and name it as Stars. Use Soft Brush tool with size 1px and color #FFFFFF, draw a big cross as shown in the diagram. Erase slightly on the 4 corners with big Soft Eraser. Select Soft Brush tool, set its opacity 20% and size to 30px. Paint a fade dot in the center of the cross.

Thanks .Glowing Stars: Right-click on the Stars layer and choose Blending Options. Leave the rest of the settings as default. Optional: You may repeat Step 5a and 5b for as many stars as you like with different sizes. I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial as much as I do.Step 5b . Choose Outer Glower and set the color to #FFFFFF.

1000×500 pixels. First create a new document.Suspended Text Effect Here’s how I made suspended translucent text effect. Then select Horizontal Type Tool and write something like ‘SUSPENDED. black background. As for me it looks wonderful.’ .

The gradient should move from top to bottom . now create a new layer. after that activate the Gradient Tool and a White to Transparent gradient.Top being the most opaque. go to gradient layer and press Ctrl+J to create a copy of the gradient in the shape of the text. which is free and it’s sized at a meager 120 pt. Now. Then create a selection of the layer contents for out text (you can press Ctrl and click the Layer Thumbnail in the Layers Palette to make this selection). Ok. . fill in the work area as on picture below.In the above image I’ve used Verdana as my font of choice.

Set this layers Blending Mode to Screen. ‘D’ – #f000ff. Create a selection of your first letter and fill in that selection with your selected color on the new layer. You’d now have this: . For letter ‘S’ use color of #ff0000. ‘P’ – #a2ff00. Repeat this process for the remaining letters using different colors for each letter. Using Rectangular Marquee Tool select and cut every letter to the separate layer but only type one letter per layer. ‘E’ – #06ec00. Create a new layer above all your letters. ‘N’ – #00d8ff. ‘D’ – #004eff. ‘S’ – #fffc00.After that you can delete the text layer because you don’t need it more for this tutorial. ‘E’ – #7200ff. ‘U’ – #ff7e00.

Merge all of your white gradient letters and merge all of your colors into one layer.one with the plain gradient letters. Then set up opacity to 60% and press Ctrl+J to duplicate each of two text layers. Now you have something like this: . the other with the colors for the letters. You should now have two layers . After that apply Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with similar settings as on a picture below for each of two layers.

Select the Pen Tool.Merge all of text layers into one layer and using Rectangular Marquee Tool select and cut every letter to the separate layer but only type one letter per layer again. Draw out your rope using paths: You have your path done. you need to make sure that you’re working with Paths instead of Shape Layers. It’s time to make a rope to hang the letters. create a new layer and go up to . this will be removed when we have stroked the line. Now make a selection from path (Right click on shape form on the Canvas > Make Selection with radius of 0 pixels). Once you have it mastered make sure the path is joined up with the beginning point.

Put all the letters above the layers with rope. . Press Ctrl+J to duplicate layer. then press Ctrl+F to apply Gaussian Blur Filter. select Edit > Stroke then select the color of #e5ffff and a stroke width of about 3 pixels.the main menu. For the effect suspended in the air rotate (you can rotate the letters by using Edit > Free Transform) and move your letters as on picture below.

Go to lower layer with rope and use Select > Load Selection. After that go to each of layers with letters and cut away parts of letters by using Eraser Tool to receive image as below: Press Ctrl+D to deselect chosen area and apply Eraser Tool again with similar setting to these: .Ok. looking nice. Now you need to make aperture into the letters to make real effect suspended in the air.

Ok you are done! And the last one you can play with the background to make it funnier. #ffe100. for example #fe5a00. Go to the layer with background and create a new layer above. . Then select a soft paint brush from the tools menu and scatter some different sized spots of your canvas using different bright colors. #7cff00 and #00fff5.

Now select the Eraser Tool and a soft round brush and erase some smaller different sized spots to get a picture as below: Set the opacity to 27% up. .

That is it. Great job! .

ph p?id=5836792 . Step 1 The first thing to do is to find the elements we will use. http://cameronmoll.com/file_closeup/object/5836792_floral_design_elements.com/archives/2008/05/25_resources_ornaments_fleurons/ After checking all the sites out. 2008 • abduzeedo's blog Last week we published our 10th Wallpaper of the Week. In this tutorial I will show you how to mix some vectors with letters to create a really nice design.istockphoto.Super Cool Frilly Bits Typography by abduzeedo | Jun 23. It was an awesome typography/design from Ginger Monkey Design called Compassion. What I really liked about that design was how they mixed some "frilly bits" with the typeface to create an outstanding piece of work. and there's a post from Cameron Moll with a huge list of these sites. So that's a nice place to start. I decided to create a tutorial showing you how to do that as well. I bought the vectors from http://www. There are lots of websites where you can find nice vectors.

Use Red. type abduzeedo and go to Layer>Layer Style>Gradient Overlay. Green. Yellow. and Light Blue for the colors. After that.Step 2 Open Photoshop and create a new document. I used Futura for the typeface . I used 1680x1050 pixels.

. In the image below you can see that the "ornament" seems to be coming from the "a".Step 3 Let's start mixing the vectors with the type. First you will have to find the right "ornament" for the letter you want. Then you will have to place it in a way that it follows the shape of that letter.

. -60% Angle. To do that let's use the Layer Styles. Use Multiply for the Blend Mode.Step 3 After you align the ornament with the letter. it's time to add some depth. 100% Opacity. Go to Layer>Layer Styles>Drop Shadow. Black for the color. Distance of 5 pixels and Size of 5 pixels as well.

you'll now have a layer with the shadow. . That's it. To do that click with the right button of the mouse on the layer with the drop shadow. Then select Create Layer from the menu.Step 4 Here let's create a layer from the shadow of the layer style.

Step 5 Now that you have the shadow in a layer let's apply a mask. Go to Layer>Layer Mask>Reveal All. The color will be black and the brush will be regular with a diameter of 45 pixels and 0% hardness. Then select the Brush Tool(B). The idea is to create the impression that the ornament is coming from. . and passing above the letter. Then just paint the mask to hide some parts of the shadow.

After that select the ornament and word layers. . However it's not necessary to do that for all of them. I only did it on the A. D. Tip: Always use the color of the exact part of the letter that the ornamet will come from.Step 6 Repeat the same thing for the other letters. D. Z. B. and O. E. group them together and rename the group to "logo".

.

Step 7 Here let's add some texture to the image. Lightness +35. After that go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation. Use Hue 49. Because the image is 1500 pixels and the document is 1680 pixels. . You can hide the other layers. Saturation 19. Download the Vintage II pack and place "Vintage10. they published an article called 300+ Vintage Style Textures and Photoshop Brushes. you'll have to duplicate the image and fill the remaining part of the document with it.jpg" image to the document. We'll use some textures from a blog called DesignReviver.

Step 8 .

jpg" in the document. . Then change the Blend Mode to Overlay and go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation. Saturation -41. Lightness -75.Download the "15_textures__art___vintage_by_jocosity" pack and place the "textur2. Use Hue +2.

Rename the group Textures. . then just change the Blend Mode to Color burn. Now.Step 9 Download the "Old_Paper_Textures_by_lailomeiel" pack and place the "DSC02679. select all texture layers and group them.JPG" in the document. It will go over the other textures.

This will convert the layer and all groups inside it to a single layer.Step 10 Select the "logo" group and go to Layer>Merge Group. Use . Then go to Layer>Layer Style>Drop Shadow.

Change the order of the layers and put the new texture layer on top of the logo layer. 100% Opacity. . Distance and Size of 5px. Then just change the Blend Mode to Overlay. Merge the group in order to create a unique layer from it.Color Burn for the Blend Mode. Duplicate the texture layer again making sure that it is still with the clipping mask. Step 11 Duplicate the "texture" group and change the blend mode of the "paper" layer to Overlay. -60º for the Angle. Then go to Layer>Create Clipping Mask and change the Blend Mode to Multiply.

.

Use 4. .Step 12 Group the "Logo" layer with the two texture clipping mask layers. Below I added a Radial Gradient so the textures only appear where the logo is. Again it's all about experimentation. Conclusion In this tutorial we learnt how to mix some vector ornaments with a word to produce a nice typography. Duplicate the group and merge it to a single layer. You can create many variations of this effect. We also played around with vintage textures and cliping masks that gave our image a not so "clean" look.5 pixels for the Radius and change the Blend Mode to Screen and 80% Opacity. Then go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur.

.

STEP 4 Create a new Layer under the text layer.. Change this to the value you want the outline to go outside of the text. ...STEP 1 Create your text using the Type Tool. and it will select the outline of the text. STEP 2 Go Select > Load Selection.. Just hit OK. STEP 3 Then Select > Modify > Expand.

STEP 5 Fill the selection on the new layer with the foreground color. (ALTBackspace) STEP 6 (optional) .
