Metal Text Effect (Photoshop Layer Style)


Downloaded 258,268 times

Today‚Äôs freebie is a awesome metal text effect layer style for Photoshop. Type your text, apply the style, Bob’s your uncle. It probably couldn’t be any easier.

The effect works with a single layer of text, so no creating multiple layers with bucket-loads of blending options – something I was keen to avoid. The effect plays nicely with larger copy (I used 200pt for the preview) and while it still works with thinner typefaces, big and chunky is a winner. Click the image above for the full-size preview. Font used in the preview is Neo Sans
