Tech Support Gone Bad here and today I’m going to teach you guys how to make a really cool electric text effect using Adobe Photoshop. Now I have PS3 but it disrupts with all the other versions that well so don’t worry about that. First thing you want to do is open up a new file or Adobe Photoshop folder, the bigger it is the better it looks so I’m just going to wait the width and height a thousand by a thousand, and I’m just going to name it Electric Text. Okay, then just do whatever you want to it to add to the look, I’m just going to simply use the Pink (--) tool and put the whole thing to black, the background to black and then just type in TSGB in light letters. You could do whatever you want but this is just what I’m going to do, then I’m going to center it; okay, after you’ve done whatever you want and also written the text that you want to have the Electric Text effect, just be sure that you’re on the text layer then right click and duplicate it; right click and click on duplicate later and just press OK to whatever pops up and then be sure you have the main lair selecting all the copy of it, the main lair; this is the lair that you’re going to put the effects on. Then, which one of those is going to filter, stylize, wind, and if something pops up just press YES and for the method, be sure it’s all Wind and direction from the right, press OK and as you see, little bit of graphic that looks like Wind has gone up on the letters, but we want to make this more so it looks like really cool electric text graphic for it. So what you want to do is hold Control or Command if you’re on the Mac, hold control and press F, and I’m just going to do it once but if you keep doing it, it keeps giving you that effect. So yeah, I’m just going to do once more actually I’ll do it twice; see, as you see, it adds even more of that Wind effect to it, and then do the same thing, go to filter, stylize, wind, but do it to the right or from the left, my right. The first time you do it from the right, this time do it from the left, and do it, press control or command F, until how many times you want it and then all you see right now it looks really cool but I wanted to also do the top and the bottom, so it gives it even a cooler look to it. So to do that go to image, rotate canvass and rotate it 90 degrees, 90 degrees CW, and just do the same thing; filter, stylize, wind from the right, okay, control or command F, one more time then do it from the left. And to get it back to normal just go to image, rotate canvass and 90 degrees CCW, and it should go back to normal and as you see this gave it a really cool electric text effect and you could use this anywhere and remember when the image is, the bigger the image and the bigger the text, pull it the effect looks and if you make it too small you won’t be able to see that much. So yeah, I hope you guys enjoy this, I hope you guys learn something today and half-full with this and goodbye.
