If by the black frame, you mean the black shadow, then just dont do the drop shadow step, and dont add the background. You should have clean gold text on a transparent background.

make it even more goldier byyy... select the text, use "bevel selection" and then mess with "curves" you should make a snake like thing (like when you are creating chrome :))

This newbie had such a hard time until I put it down and stepped away for a bit. The alpha masks are what done me in but I got it. Learned how to do alpha masks somewhat but I need more practice to get it down pat.

LFC4EVER...your work is amazing as are all the others I see here. I want to thank you for this opportunity to try something different. It made my day. Here's my go at it. The text is...dang...I forgot the name. Anyway...it appears a bit light but I'm satisfied.

I did have a post here. Where'd it go? Oh well...try again. I wanted to edit because I forgot to resize the image and hit the wrong button. I want to say thanks for this. It is really well thought out. So well in fact that it confused the h**l out of me. But...I got it after putting it down and taking a break. Here's mine.

I was fooling around with something different and came up with this. Started out like the gold text tut with a cyan dual tone background. I used the Elvish Ring NFI font I found at Link. It says Tribute to

J R. R. Tolkien. Then I got this crazy idea to call up shape 3D and play with it. I found it surprisingly easy to create the ring shape but...how do I put some body (depth...thickness?) to it. Any suggestions?

uvah, i'm glad you perservered with the tutorial, but although it may have been difficult, you've got a fantastic result thats looking really clean. Awesome job.

if you want to add some 3D thickness to the text, flatten the text without the drop shadow onto a transparent layer and use the trail plugin. It may work, i havent tested it though.

btw, sorry for the late reply. :/

I've updated the links in the original post (the extra link to the tutorial for alpha mask is broken though).

For future reference, there is a list of plugins here on the forum. Check out the link in my signature.

I never could do this due to the mind block my brain had on alpha masking ... and I learnt about changing the colours in multi gradient
