Grand Canyon Composite

I got a request for a Grand canyon with a Western theme. I failed on the “Western” account, but I think the end result looks good.

Cool Photoshop text

Dear World,

This is a tutorial on how to add cool text that looks like another part of the image.

Step one:

Find a sutible image whether from Google or one you took yourself. Preferably one with a clear distinction between the foreground and the background.

For instance.

Lake Tahoe Colors copy

Step two:

Get the text mask tool, select the area that you want the text to look like and type what you want to say.

Text selection

Step three:

Copy the selection by pressing Ctrl + C, and Past it by pressing Ctrl + V. Then select the move tool by pressing the letter V.Drag the text layer to where you want it to be.

Text moved

Step four:

With the text layer selected go to menu: Layer-> Layer Style-> Style Settings and this dialog box should show up.

Dialog box

Step five:

Add drop shadow, lighting and bevel settings until you get what you want.


And that is it! 🙂 Experiment at will!
