preppy text v7 tutorial



What you'll need:
  • One of the Photoshop Programs
  • this pattern


  • What you'll be making:


    The Steps

    1. Type out your text and color it with your color scheme.


    2. Duplicate the text layer (layer >> duplicate layer >> ok). On the top layer, right click and click "Blending Options". You're going to be doing a "Pattern Overlay" (using the pattern I provided) and "Bevel and Emboss" and a "Gradient Overlay." Match all settings to mine. NOTE: After doing this step, you will not be able to see the colored text layer YET because it is under this layer. We will be fixing that later, so don't panic!




    The gradient being used should already be in your Photoshop. It comes with it.


    and now you should have something like this


    3. Click on the BOTTOM text layer, which should still be your colored text. Click on the Move Tool.


    On your keyboard, push the arrow key down about 5 times to nudge the text down. Now you should see the colored text poking out under the grunge text.

    4. Right click on the BOTTOM text layer (the colored text layer) and click "Pattern Overlay." Match your settings to mine with the grunge pattern we used earlier.


    you should have something like this now



    5. Right click on the top text layer and click "Rasterize Layer." Do the same thing to the bottom layer.

    6. Create 2 new layers (layer >> new >> layer >> ok). Drag one of them under the top text layer, drag the other under the bottom text layer. Right click on the top text layer and click "Merge Down." Do the same to the bottom text layer.

    7. Right click on the top text layer and click "Merge Down." Now you should have ONE text layer. Go to the Blending Options and click "Stroke" and match your settings to mine.


    8. Create a new layer. Drag it underneath the text layer. Right click your text layer and click "Merge Down." Double click the text layer and click "Stroke." Match your settings to mine.


    9. Create a new layer. Drag it underneath the text layer. Right click your text layer and click "Merge Down." Double click the text layer and click "Stroke." Match your settings to mine, but with your gradient.


    and now you should have


    10. Create a new layer. Drag it underneath the text layer. Right click your text layer and click "Merge Down." Double click the text layer and click "Stroke" but use your scanline pattern (if you don't have one than check out my patterns section)


    You're done!! I added a little bit of a drop shadow too.
