Learning Photoshop: Day 8 – Text Effects

I am primarily a writer, thus it seems like learning how to do things with text in Photoshop would probably be a good idea on my part.  I happen at the moment to have a fondness for metal, so I went with this tutorial.   Warning where it is due – the tutorial is useful, but poorly created and without sound.


My results?


I didn’t do anywhere near the amount of flares the guy in the tutorial did, mostly because I don’t happen to keep a library of lens flares handy.

I used the same process for my nephew’s name and tried printing it out for him, and while this looks okay on the screen it does NOT translate well to print even when you do have glossy paper and a decent printer.
