Required Plugins:

AA's_Assistant by @dpy

Align Object by @moc426 or Align Object by @xod

Drop Shadow by @KrisVDM

Gradient Mapping by @pyrochild

Object Inner Shadow by @BoltBait

 

Note: Read first How to install Plugins.

 

Font required: Goudy Stout

 

1. Create a new image (FileNew.png) of any size (f.e. 800x320px) and clear it (Ctrl+A, Ctrl+X).

 

2. Select the Text tool (TextTool.png) and type CHEESE in the Goudy Stout font with size 84.

 

3. Select the Magic Wand (Magic-Wand-Tool.png) tool with Contiguous (Flood-Mode-Local.png) mode and a Tolerance of 75-80%. Select the letter S in the text.

4. Switch to the Move Selected Pixels (Move-Selected-Pixels-Tool.png) tool and use the cursor keys to move the letter S to the right to reduce the distance between adjacent letters.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the remaining letters until you get an acceptable result.

6. Select the entire text using the Magic Wand tool with Global (Flood-Mode-Global.png) mode. Switch to the Move Selected Pixels tool and stretch the text up a little (about 10 px).

Crop to Selection (CropIcon.png).

 

7. Increase the canvas size (Image - > Canvas Size (Canvas-Size-Icon.png) or Ctrl+Shift+R) with an anchoring to the middle.

If necessary, align the text to the center using the Align Object effect (Effects -> Align Object for @moc426's effect or Effects -> Object -> Align Object for @xod's effect).

 

8. Zoom (Zoom-Tool-Icon.png) a bit closer to the text, and with the Eraser (Eraser-Tool-Icon.png) tool delete a couple of places on each letter as shown below:

Now your text should look like this.

9. Select the entire text using the Magic Wand tool with Global mode. Fill the selection with a linear (Gradient-Type-Linear.png) gradient (Gradient-Tool.png) with default colors (Black-And-White.png) as shown in the image below.

Apply the Gradient Mapping effect (Adjustments -> Gradient Mapping) by arranging the markers as shown in the image below. Use these colors for the gradient: FCDA6E, FFD24C. If necessary, move the colors using the Offset slider.

Invert the selection (Ctrl+I) and delete the selected area (Ctrl+X).

10. Add a new layer (Add-New-Layer.png). Select the Ellipse Select (Ellipse-Select-Tool.png) tool with the Add (union) (Selection-Combine-Mode-Union.png) mode and draw several holes of different diameters in the letters. Select the Paint Bucket (Paint-Bucket.png) tool with Global mode and fill the selection area with FFEEB4 color.

14. Merge both layers (Merge-Layer-Down.png) and save your final result.

Wow, a wonderful interpretation of the tutorial, @Pixey! Thank you.

 

All my adaptations of Photoshop tutorials are an attempt to popularize the capabilities of both the PDN itself and the plugins that our developers create.
