Floral 3D Text Effect Photoshop Tutorial
IMPORTANT: When ever you create any effects, use action palette to store the functions because again if you need the same effect so it will be easy for you to get the same effect.
Step 1 – Create the 3D text
As we start we need 3d text effect I’m taking help of illustrator to create 3D text. You can download the font from here. Feel free to use any program you like to create the 3D text. If you are using any other application like Maya, 3Ds max, etc, make sure that the file you save has transparency.
Step 2 – Create a new Document
Choose File > New or press Ctrl/Command + N to create a new document. I’m using wallpaper size of 1440px(width) X 900px(height). You can use any wallpaper size as you wish.
Step 3 – Bring the 3D text to Photoshop
You can save the image as .png format to get transparency or you can directly copy (Ctrl/Command + C) the 3D text from illustrator & paste (Ctrl/Command + V) in Photoshop. So you will get the 3D image in Photoshop as you see the image below.
Step 4 – Adding Color to the text
Now we need to add some color to the text. To do this, choose Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation the use these settings:
- Colorized: Checkmarked
- Hue: 198
- Saturation: 22
- Lightness: 0
Step 5 – Adding Contrast to the Image
Now we’ll need to add more contrast to the text. Choose Image > Adjustment > Levels then adjust the settings like shown in the image below.
Step 6 – Making the Color Little Bit Dull
Now we’ll repeat what we did in Step 4. Choose Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation. Use the settings as shown in the image below.
Step 7 – Adding Filter Effects
For this text, we’ll use the Craquelure effect. Choose Filter > Texture > Craquelure. Use these settings:
- Crack Spacing: 18
- Crack Depth: 6
- Crack Brightness: 1
