Take a look at the Bevel Selection tool.

viewtopic.php?f=16&t=26238&hilit=Bevel+Selection

Maybe try a search on those words.

And put 3D text, or something, in you topic title. That way more people may come to help.

You went to the Tutorials+ section of this forum, right? Then you clicked on the sub-forum called "Text Effects", naturally. And of course you read through at least four topics that have 3D in the title?

If not, that might be the best place to start :wink:

Like this?

Steps:

1.Make some text, try to use something bulky

2.delete the text and make a new layer

3.on the new layer create what you want your text to look like(you might want to bevel it)

4.merge layers

5.use roll/rotate to move it where you want

6.duplicate the layer,and select the text on the back layer, fill it with black

7.use the move tool (:MoveTool:) to create the shadow

8.make a background on a new layer

Done!

I hope this is what you want though.
