Need help with 3D effect


Recommended Posts

I believe there is a chrome text tutorial somewhere that with a little modification could get you your effect. H/O... Ahh! Here it is! Just shade it in a gold color at the end of the effect and it should look somewhat like what you describe. As for the real thing it would have to be multiple layers, brush tool, gaussian blur and the sorts. Not fun :D

OK, here's how you can do it yourself.

1. Open your image

Here is how to add some shading so that it looks 3D:

2. Layer > Duplicate Layer (Your graphic should have 2 layers now, both with a copy of your graphic.)

3. Select the top layer

4. Effects > Blurs > Gaussian Blur (Radius = 10)

5. Layers > Layer Property (Set blending mode to Darken and adjust Opacity for desired 3D effect)

6. Image > Flaten

Here is how to color it gold:

7. Image > Add new layer

8. Select the new, empty, top layer

9. Fill that layer with color FFD92B (You can do this by entering FFD92B into the Hex box of the More>> mode of the Colors Docker window for your primary color. Then using the paint bucket tool fill the layer with color.)

10. Layers > Layer Property (Set blending mode to Multiply)

11. Image > Flaten

Done. Here is the result:

By the way, this method only works because your background color was black. ;)

I used BB's method, which worked good, then I tweeked it a little bit.
