A Fiery Glowing/Flaming text effect
Here’s the first tutorial from me, for my Blog Readers.
This is a relatively Simple and easy one.
Final Effect will be like this..
I’ve written it myself in such a way that even a person who has not used Photoshop in past, will be able to understand this tutorial, and produce this effect. You can add your creativity with this tutorial to get better Graphics.
So, let’s start our work. As I’ve already told, this one is easy. You can accomplish this in 8-easy-to-perform steps.
Step I) Open a new image in Photoshop. I used the size to be “500 x 125” pixels.
Step II) Fill the background with Black Color. For this, firstly, select the Foreground color as Black, then select the Paint Bucket Tool. Now click anywhere in the image to fill it.
Step III) It’s time to write our text on the image. Click the ‘Horizontal Text Type Tool’ and click on the image. A cursor will blink, where you can write the text. (Don’t worry if nothing appears. The text color is black by default, which is same as background color. Just type what you want, and we will fix this later).
Step IV) Change the font color to ‘White’ from the ‘set text color’ box (see screenshot). You can adjust the Font Style and Font Size also. I recommend using simple fonts like ‘Monotype Corsiva’ in this effect.
Step V) Now go to “Layer || Flatten Image” or press “Ctrl+Shift+E” to merge the text layer and the background layer.
Step VI) Now, go to “Filter || Stylize || Wind” and choose “From the Right” direction and press OK. Again go to “Filter || Stylize || Wind” and choose “From the Left” direction and press OK.
Step VII) Now choose the option “Image || Rotate Canvas || 90° CW” Repeat Step VI now. You will get the following result.
Step VIII) Make the image normal by “Image || Rotate Canvas || 90° CCW”
Step IX) Choose the option “Filter || Stylize || Glowing Edges” A dialog box will open up. You can see three sliders here. Adjust them as you wish. I used these settings :
- Edge Width – 1
- Edge Brightness – 9
- Smoothness – 5
Press OK when satisfied. You will get something like this.
Step X) Time to give the final effects. Choose “Image || Mode || Grayscale” (Choose ‘discard’ if a message pops-up). After that, choose “Image || Mode || Indexed Color”
Step XI) Go to “Image || Mode || Color Table” and select ‘Black Body’ from the drop-down menu. Voila!! Magic happens.
Step XII) Finally, choose the “Image || Mode || RGB Color” option. You are done. Now, you can save the image in any format you wish.
