How to modify text in Photoshop 2

In this section we will introduce you again (refer to how to modify text in Photoshop1) a technique to modify text in Photoshop. Last time we used warp text for modifying, this time we will use layer style.

If you are a beginner, you can also refer to the section Inserting texts and basic operations in Photoshop for further details on basic text insertion.

Step01 Insert text

Start Photoshop and inset text using the [Horizontal Type Tool].

Step02 Change the text color

Next, you change the text color.

In the [Text] panel (Window -> Text), double click color. Select any color when the color picker appears. (I used a bluish color in the example.)

Step03 Text color has changed

Now the text color has changed. It is ready for modification.

Step04 Modify text (apply layer style)

Now, we start modifying the text. Click [Layer -> Layer Style -> Drop Shadow].

The layer dialog appears. Make sure that the drop shadow on the left is checked. Set the preference as shown above.

Do not click OK yet.

Step05 Confirm the effect of the modified text

You can adjust and confirm the effect at the same time when you check the [Preview] box in the [Layer Style] dialog box.

Step06 Apply Bevel and Emboss

Next, check the [Bevel and Emboss] box in the left of the [Layer Style] dialog box to activate [Bevel and Emboss].

Make sure the setting box of Bevel and Emboss appeared on the right and set the preference as shown above. When you are done, click OK.

Sum-Up

How to modify text in Photoshop 2

The text is modified into three-dimensional text with shadows.

This time we used [Drop Shadow] and [Bevel (interior)] to modify the text, there are many more effects in [Layer Style].

Each effect can be set in details, try exploring them.
