Blending OptionJuly 6th, 2007 in Designing, Tutorials, Web Graphic by kailoon
Today I am going to do a very simple but very useful tutorial. It is about the blending option. Blending option is a very important component in PS and if you can get use to it well then you can make life easy when you doing graphic design. I choose to use text for this tutorial and you may also be able to use this technique in other object such as the button, logo and etc. letâ€™s start now.
Create a new document (400px X 200px) with white background color.
Type something with a bold font so that we can see the effect more detail. I use Arial Black, 48pt and type LOONDESIGN again.
Ok, letâ€™s start with the blending option by double click the type layer. Check the Inner Glow Option and set the blend mode to normal, 35% opacity and 8px for size:
After that, Gradient Overlay with 100% opacity and linear style.
This is the most important part and you should do some experiments on this. For now, set as below:
Final step, Stroke Option, 1px inside stroke with 100% opacity and the color shown below:
Youâ€™re done! Easy, right?
Here is some other examples, hope you enjoy!
