Ive seen an effect I've been trying to replicate recently with no joy and i was hoping someone here might know how to do it. If you look at the attachments you'll see coloured text boxes that have a light colour fading into a deeper version ie light yellow fading to deep yellow, light blue to deep blue etc. Does anyone know how to achieve this effect, is it something to do with bevelling or maybe a colour gradient thing?
Also those colours are very vivid, are they on the normal palette or part of the effect?
Im using photoshop elements in case that makes a difference, thanks to anyone who can offer any help, itss very much appreciated!!
These are very straight forward to create using Layer Styles.
Make your Type layer and double click the layer to open Layer Styles.
Click on Gradient Overlay. You might chose to use background to forground colour gradient, in which case it is easier to set those colours before oiipening Layer Styles, but you can double click the gradient to have more options.
Then Chose Stroke and give it an outside black stroke to matcgh the examples
When you have an effect you like, you might like to open the Styles panel and save it as a new style (the icon I have highlighted with a green square). You can simply click on the style to apply it in totale to selected layers.
