Learn to create 3D text using only Photoshop. Learn to create 3D text using only Photoshop. As we know Photoshop is not an option to create 3D, but here you teach in a way that we can make a 3D text using paresca shadows.

It is a very simple form but is a bit slow to make shade for each letter. It is a very simple form but is a bit slow to make shade for each letter.

Step 1

We start with a new document, I will make 700px by 700px but the size does not matter. We start with a new document, I will make 700px by 700px but the size does not matter. Got the text tool and write anything, I will use Zona Photohsop and I will split into two words, uppercase and using Helvetica Bold 90pt size, color does not matter for now.

Step 2

Duplicate our layer (s) of text, this is to work with a copy and leave the original in case we were wrong in something and hide the original layer. Duplicate our layer (s) of text, this is to work with a copy and leave the original in case we were wrong in something and hide the original layer.

Step 3

Because you do that, select one of the duplicate layer and go to Layer -> Type -> Convert to Shape. Because you do that, select one of the duplicate layer and go to Layer -> Type -> Convert to Shape. This makes the layer Shape, which is like Vector layers created with the Pen tool and can change without being "pixelee. This makes the Shape layer, which is like Vector layers created with the Pen tool and can change without being "pixel.

Step 4

Now select the duplicated layer and go to Edit -> Transform -> Perspective. Now select the duplicated layer and go to Edit -> Transform -> Perspective.

First move the arrows marked with 1 up, then move the arrows marked with the 2 up so that our text has the same perspective that the above. First move the arrows marked with 1 up, then move the arrows marked with the 2 up so that our text has the same perspective that the above.

Step 5

Now we will duplicate each layer several times to get the 3D background. Now we will duplicate each layer several times to get the 3D background. Do right click -> Duplicate Layer on the layer and then use the arrow keys (be sure to Move Tool selected) to move the duplicated layer, press the left arrow once and the up arrow once. Do right click -> Duplicate Layer on the layer and then use the arrow keys (be sure to Move Tool selected) to move the duplicated layer, press the left arrow and the up arrow eleven eleven. I duplicated my layer 8 times. I duplicated my layer 8 times.

Now you have to Raster rise each duplicated layer, right click -> Raster rise Layer. Now you have to Raster rise each duplicated layer, right click -> Raster riseLayer. Since you do this, select all the layers (click on the first, then shift + click on the top) go to Layer -> Merge Layers. Since you do this, select all the layers (click on the first, then shift + click on the top) go to Layer -> Merge Layers.

Repeat this step if you have another layer of text, in my case is "ZONE." Repeat this step if you have another layer of text, in my case is "ZONE."

You change the color to the original layer and moving upwards, leaving the bottom layers together, as they are the "shadow". You change the color to the original layer and moving upwards, leaving the bottom layers together, as they are the "shadow".

Step 6

Our text and appears 3D, but still need to add the shadow. The shading is slow because it will shade each hand. Our text and appears 3D, but still need to add the shadow. The shading is slow because it will shade each hand.

Before we begin to select the color you will have our final text. Before we begin to select the color you will have our final text. I will use # ffad1f to "zone" and # 1d96c5 for "Photoshop." I will use # ffad1f to "zone" and # 1d96c5 for "Photoshop."

Step 7
Now let's zoom a lot and we will use Polygonal Lasso Tool to select each area "straight" in the shadow layer: Now let's zoom a lot and we will use polygonal Lasso Tool to select each area "straight" in the shadow layer :

Create a new layer, we will use a new layer for each shade so you can change easily change the mode of this layer to Multiply and seleccionasmos Brush Tool with a Soft Brush about 65px. We make sure you have the same background color and paint as selected in the following image, I use red to show what we are going to paint: We make sure you have the same background color and paint as selected in the following image, I use network to show what we are going to paint:

We want to create the shadow they would if this were a real 3D object. We want to create the shadow they would if this were a real 3D object.

Step 7

We have to repeat the previous step for each of the straight sides of the shade to get something like the following: We have to repeat the previous step for each of the straight sides of the shade to get something like the following:

Step 8

Now we create the shadow of our 3D text, then Ctrl + Shift + Click on each of the previews of the layers to select them all Now we create the shadow of our 3D text, then Ctrl + Shift + Click on each of the previews of the layers to select all

Create a new layer and fill this selection with black # 000000, put this layer behind the other. Create a new layer and fill this selection with black # 000000, put this layer behind the other. Go to Filter -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur and select a Radius of 5px Go to Filter -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur and select a Radius of 5px

Se va a ver algo como esto, la sombra quda detras de todo el texto: Will see something like the shadow behind quda throughout the text:

Paso 9 Step 9

Let's Edit -> Free Transform and move the handle of the way as top-down image at the next Let's Edit -> Free Transform and move the handle of the way as top-down at the next image

Despues giramos la sombra hasta que nos quede asi: Then turn the shadows until we are left like this:

Step 10

As the shadow is still going strong to apply Gaussian Blur (Filter -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur) otraves and reduce the Opacity of this layer to 40% and we have completed our 3D Text only done with Photoshop As the shadow is still going strong to apply Gaussian Blur (Filter -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur) otraves and reduce the Opacity of this layer to 40% and we have completed our 3D Text only done with Photoshop
