Learning Photoshop: Day 20 – Embossed metal text

For today’s lesson, I decided to return to various font options.  This particular tutorial also involves use of the bevel, shadow, pattern overlay, and drop shadow layer effects, as well as fiddling with fill options to improve the bevel/emboss look.

The tutorial provided the stock images, making this one very easy.  My results?


For this, I followed the tutorial exactly.  After looking at the results, however, I decided to play with the export features to resize the image.


Now, you’ll note it is the correct size for one of my blog headers, and still looks acceptable.  If anything, I like the squishy version a little better.

Overall, I don’t care for the emboss on the shield, and think it could stand some improvement.  Next time.
