How to Create Gradient Text in Photoshop
Hey this is Rick from EssentialPhotoshopElements.com. In this tutorial we’re going to see how you can create gradient text. And the first thing we want to do is create a new document. On a PC it would be Ctrl-N and on the Mac it's command N and then you’ll get this dialog box. The only thing you want to make sure is that this background contents field is set to white and then click okay. And now we need to create our text, so go over tot the toolbox and grab the text tool. Click anywhere inside your document and then just type away. Now we need to create a new layer for our gradient. So go over to the layers panel and click on create a new layer icon, then go over to your toolbox and click on the gradient tool. And then go up to into the options panel and there is a little arrow to the right of the gradient icon and that will open up the gradient picker. And you can choose from any of the gradients that are in there.
So let's take this colorful one here and close that. And now all you do is click and drag across your screen where you want the gradient to be. The gradient completely covers up our text. So what we need to do is create what's called a clipping mask. And one easy way to do that is just take your cursor and hold down the Alt-key and on the PC here the option key on the Mac. And when you get that chain link the icon you’ll get it when you hover you cursor in between the two layers and then just click and it will create a poppy mask and that will place the gradient inside of your type. Now the great thing about this technique is how versatile it is. You can grab your text tool again. Go on to the text layer, select your text and you can type whatever you want in there. And it will be filled with that gradient or you can even select your text and if you want to change fonts you can do that.
So we’ll go up here and choose a different font, let's see if there is a style in here so yeah, you can do all that. And if you want to change your gradient you can also do that because that’s on a separate layer. So you would click on your gradient layer, click on the gradient tool in the toolbox and then go up here gradient picker and just choose a different gradient. Close the box, drag the new gradient across there and your text will be filled with that. Basically that’s it, that’s very quick and easy. This is Rick from EssentialPhotoshopElements.com.
