  1. It’s easy tutorial , but the difficult is how to make it clean and real. We need here essentially : - Alpha mask - BoltBait’s - outline selection - - Drop shadow - Metalize Secondly : Tile reflexion- noise – motion blur –Splinter- clouds – curves. This is theresult Make a background 1- Add a new layer (background ) with : Width (1600)Hieght (800) 2- Gradient radial with color : # C3C3C3 primary , #000000 secondry 3- Effects >distort>Tiles reflection : angle :30 , Tile size : 10, Curvature : 45 4- Gradient radial with color : Transparence primary, #000000 secondry Metal texture 5- Add a new layer (textur)with color # c3c3c3 6- Effects >Noise >add noise : Intensity :100, color saturation :0, covrage :100 7- Effects >Blurs>motion blur : angle : 10, distance :30. 8- with color :white and black , Effects >render>Clouds scale : 200, roughness :0,50 ,Blend mode : Overlay 9- Effects >Noise >add noise : Intensity :50, color saturation :0, covrage :100 10- Effects >Blurs > Splinter : Number of splinters : 4, Rotation :25, distance :8. (or you can also use motionblur ) Text mask 11- Add a new layer (Text mask) and write your text (just a few letters)with : black color ,Font :arial black ; size : 72 12- With rectangle select you can tronsform your text in a large size ; put it now in the middle 13- Add AA’s assitance to delete pixelated. 14- in the layer (text mask) : - select all Ctrl+A , copy Ctrl+c, deselect Ctrl+d You are not need this layar now (you can delet it or check out layer). Apply Alpha mask in the layer (textur) 15- Go to Effects > Alpha mask : make you sure that (invert Mask and Paste frome clipboard) are checked. 16- with magic wand (floodmode : global, Tolerance: 50%) select the outside of your text and invert selection (Ctrl+I). 17- add your text a few Gradient linear with color : Transparence primary, #000000 secondry (transparancy-alpha : 140 ) . 18- don't deselect; add now Effects>selection > outline selection BoltBait’s : outline width : 10, color diffirent with black and white ( like blue ). 19- Deselect text and select the outline selection always with magic wand (floodmode : global, Tolerance: 50%). Copy the outline. Outline chrome 20- Add a new layer (outline selection) and paste the copy of outline selection. 21- use magic wand (floodmode : global, Tolerance: 50%), gradient linear, color : black and white to add a chrome color. 22- Add a metallize effect. Finaly with curves and a few drop shadow you will get a nice result

  2. Nice work Yelloman. I particularly like the one with the image in the text. ChitoDog, I think you need to update your Alpha Mask plug in. The latest version has the clipboard feature. It`s always best to keep an eye out for updates with all the plug ins and to install them when they are published. That way you won`t end up having problems like this. Here is the link to Alpha Mask Import 2.0 - You can still use the one you have though. Instead of pasting from clipboard, uncheck all other layers so that only the text layer is showing, flatten the image, then save it somewhere on your PC as a png image. Then undo the flatten part so you have the layers back, open Alpha Mask and browse to the png file you have just saved and load it from there. As you can see, having the latest version avoids all this. You are quite right about Metallize, it is another plug in.Here is the link for that one - Hope this helps. Now lets see what you come up with.

  3. Hello Simon, Thank you for your reply. I find the forced autodetection feature is subjectively unhelpful. In the screenshot below, it shows me 42 icons, out of which I currently use exactly one program and may conceivably use another. In other words, 95% of the icons are not needed. And that is without mentioning duplications. What I would like is the ability to turn autodetection off and instead use a set of predefined applications. Is it feasible? Best, Alex.

  4. Beautiful designs everyone, and thanks Adel and WelshBlue. Adel, this video explains the method that I used to get all these effects, you just need to play with Alpha Displacement plugin, By the way, it is hard to get the same effect every time, it all depends on the Font style and AD settings:
