Hey everyone and welcome to another Robert’s Production Studios video tutorial. Today, we’re going to be learning how to create a fantastic glowing text in Photoshop. In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a very cool glowing effect that looks amazing when you use with text. First thing we’re going to do is we’re going to create a new document. We’re going to file, new. We’re going to set the width at 800 and the height at 800 as well. Make sure the background content is set to white. Click OK.
Now we’re going to go to filter, noise, add noise, and we’re going to choose the settings for the amount. We’re going to set 400%. For the distribution, we’re going to keep it at uniform and make sure the monochromatic check box is not checked. Click OK. Now, we’re going to go to filter, blur, radial blur, and we’re going to choose the settings for the amount of the radial blur to 100. We’re going to set the blur method to zoom and the quality at good, click OK. We’re going to repeat these effects so we’re going to hit Control-F or Command-F if you’re on the Mac. Were going to go to filter, stylize, and glowing edges. For the edge width we are going to set to 2, for the edge brightness 17, and for the smoothness 5. Click OK. Our image looks rather rough now, so we’re going to go filter, blur, radial blur, and we’re going to keep the settings the same and just hit OK.
Now, it’s smooth. We’re going to copy our background image by simply hitting Control-J or Command-J on the Mac. Now, we will have two layers. One is named layer one and another is our background. Change the blending mode of our layer one to screen, so make sure it’s selected and change the blending mode to screen. Now, we’re going to hit Control-E to merge down our layer one with the background, Control-E or Command-E on the Mac. Were going to right click on the Horizontal Type Tool and we’re going to choose Horizontal Type Mask Tool. Before we use a text tool, we’re going to create a new layer named ‘layer one’. Now, we can use the text tool typing our sample text, hit control to align it up to where we want it and hit enter.
Now, we are going to choose the rectangular marquee tool. We’re going to click on the subtraction from selection option and set the feather to 30 pixels. Now, we’re going to drag our selection towards the middle of the text just like this, and let me Control-Z that, just like that. Now you can see the upper part is being selected. We’re going to select the Gradient Tool. We’re going to use the Spectrum Gradient, click OK, and we’re going to select the Radial Gradient from the options. So right here, the Radial Gradient. Now, we’re going to draw a line from the top left of our text to the bottom right. And now, we get that. We’re going to hit Control-D to deselect everything or Command-D on the Mac. Now, we’re going to add some effects to our text. So we’re going to double click on the layer one to open up the layer style dialogue box. We’re going to use these settings. We’re going to select a drop shadow, leave everything normal, just how it is unless you have to change some of these settings. We’re going to select an outer glow and we’re going to keep those settings as well, and we’re going to click OK. There is our finished text. So a kind of cool looking text and it really stands out. You can use this for many different projects, and that’s all.
So if you’re on YouTube, please rate, comment, subscribe, and hopefully this helped. We’ve also came out with our new website, rpstudios.web44.net. We’ve created a new layout and now, we got all of the latest tutorials that are coming up and this is pretty much like our blog. We have our photo gallery, our recent photos, YouTube videos, our recent YouTube videos, games and much more. We’re going to be including our After Effects tutorials and our Photoshop tutorials, and I think I might try to go into creating tutorials for Adobe Fireworks and Adobe Flash CS3. I’ve also wanted to create some tutorials of Sony Vegas Pro 8 and see what we can do from there.
Hopefully, this tutorial helped. I’m Robert from Robert’s Production Studios. Thank you for watching, take care.
