Just thought I’d Kick off the tutorials sections with a quick one from some of the Photoshop Tutorials at Tutorial9 . With just a few simple steps, you can add a calm, easy-going text effect — great for evening events and crisp banners.
What We’re Making
This Text Effect Quickie will show you how to easily create a soft glowing moon-like text.
Before getting started, you may want to download the font used:
Step 1 – Background
Since this text effect looks best on dark colored backgrounds, let’s create one. Using the color #0f1c25 and black, create a radial gradient from the center of your document.
Step 2 – Setting the Type
