Create A Gold Text Effect In Photoshop CC and CS6

How to create a gold text effect in Photoshop

Turn type into gold with this step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to create shiny gold letters and text in Photoshop! Now fully updated for Photoshop CC !

Written by Steve Patterson.

In this tutorial, I show you how to easily create a gold text effect with Photoshop using simple layer effects and gradients. And to make the gold letters really shine, we'll finish off by adding sparkles to the text using one of Photoshop's brushes!

I've updated this tutorial to include recent changes to Photoshop, like the new Brushes panel in Photoshop CC and the new Free Transform shortcuts in CC So for the best results, you'll want to be using the latest version of Photoshop CC. But where needed, I also include the original steps so that Photoshop CS6 users can still follow along.

Here's what the gold text effect will look like when we're done:

How to create gold text in Photoshop

I'll start with the steps for setting up the document and adding the initial text. But if you have already added your text, you can skip to Step 8 where we start turning the text into gold.

Step 1: Create a new Photoshop document

Create a new document by going up to the File menu in the Menu Bar and choosing New:

Creating a new document in Photoshop

Going to File > New.

And in the New Document dialog box, set the Width of your document to Pixels, the Height to Pixels, and the Resolution to 72 pixels/inch.

Then in Photoshop CC, click the Create button, or in CS6, click OK:

The width, height and resolution of the new Photoshop document

Setting the Width, Height and Resolution of the new document.

The new document appears:

The new Photoshop document that will be used for the gold text effect

The new Photoshop document.

Step 2: Fill the document with black

To help the gold letters stand out, change the background color of the document from white to black.

Go up to the Edit menu in the Menu bar and choose Fill:

Choosing the Fill command from the Edit menu in Photoshop

Going to Edit > Fill.

Then in the Fill dialog box, set the Contents to Black and click OK:

Setting the Contents option to Black in Photoshop's Fill dialog box

Changing Contents to Black.

Photoshop fills the background with black:

Step 3: Select the Type Tool

To add your text, select the Type Tool from the toolbar:

Selecting the Type Tool in Photoshop

Selecting the Type Tool.

Step 4: Choose your font

Then in the Options Bar, choose your font. For this tutorial, I'll keep things simple and use Times New Roman Bold, but you can use any font you like.

Set the Size of the type to 72 pt. We'll resize the type once we've added it, but this will give us the largest preset size for now:

Choosing a font and setting the size to 72 pt.

Step 5: Set the type color to white

To see the text against the black background, set the initial color of the type to white. We'll add the gold colors later using layer effects.

Click on the color swatch in the Options Bar:

Clicking the type color swatch in Photoshop's Options Bar

Clicking the color swatch.

And in the Color Picker, choose white by setting the R, G and B values (Red, Green and Blue) each to . Then close the Color Picker by clicking OK:

Changing the type color to white in Photoshop's Color Picker

Changing the type color to white.

Step 6: Add your text to the document

Click inside the document and add your text. I'll type the word "GOLD".

Don't worry that the text is too small. We'll resize it in the next step:

Adding the text to the Photoshop document

Adding the text.

To accept the text, click the checkmark in the Options Bar:

Clicking the checkmark to accept the text

Clicking the checkmark to accept the text.

Step 7: Resize and reposition the text with Free Transform

To resize the text, and move it into the center of the canvas, go up to the Edit menu and choose Free Transform:

Selecting the Free Transform command in Photoshop

Going to Edit > Free Transform.

Then resize the text by clicking and dragging any of the corner handles that appear around it.

But this is where we run into a difference between Photoshop CC and CS6.

How to resize the text in Photoshop CC

As of Photoshop CC , Free Transform now locks the aspect ratio automatically as you drag the handles, so you don't distort the shapes of the letters as you resize the text. This is the behavior we want, so if you're using Photoshop CC, you can just drag the handles without adding any modifier keys.

How to resize the text in Photoshop CS6

But in CS6, you need to press and hold your Shift key as you drag the handles to lock the aspect ratio in place. And when you're done resizing the text, make sure you release your mouse button before releasing the Shift key.

How to move the text into the center of the document

Once you've resized the text, move it into the center of the canvas by clicking inside the Free Transform box and dragging the text into position.

When you're done, press Enter (Win) / Return (Mac) on your keyboard to close Free Transform:

Using Free Transform to resize and center the text in the Photoshop document

Resizing the text by dragging the corner handles.

Step 8: Make a copy of the Type layer

Now that we've added the text, we're ready to start turning the letters into gold.

In the Layers panel, make a copy of the Type layer by dragging it down onto the Add New Layer icon at the bottom:

Duplicating the 'GOLD' Type layer

Dragging the Type layer onto the Add New Layer icon.

A copy of the Type layer appears above the original:

Step 9: Color the text with a Gradient Overlay layer effect

To turn the text into gold, we'll use Photoshop's layer effects. And the first effect we need is Gradient Overlay. We'll use it to add some gold colors to the letters.

Still in the Layers panel, make sure the "GOLD copy" layer is selected. Then click the Layer Styles icon (the "fx" icon) at the bottom:

Clicking the Layer Styles icon in Photoshop's Layers panel

Clicking the Layer Styles icon.

And in the layer effects menu, choose Gradient Overlay:

Selecting a Gradient Overlay layer effect in Photoshop

Choosing a Gradient Overlay layer effect.

Step Create a custom gold gradient

Photoshop opens the Layer Style dialog box set to the Gradient Overlay options.

First, clear away any previous settings you may have used by clicking the Reset to Default button:

Resetting the Gradient Overlay layer effect to the default settings in Photoshop

Resetting the Gradient Overlay options.

And then edit the gradient colors by clicking the gradient swatch:

Clicking the gradient color swatch to edit the gradient

Clicking the gradient color swatch.

In the Gradient Editor, double-click on the color stop below the left side of the gradient:

Double-clicking the left color stop in Photoshop's Gradient Editor

Double-clicking the left color stop.

Adding the gold gradient colors

We're going to create a custom gold gradient for the text. And to help us out, I've sampled colors from a photo of a gold coin.

In the Color Picker, set the R value to , the G value to , and the B value to . Then click OK to close the Color Picker:

Changing the color for the left side of the gold gradient in Photoshop

Changing the color for the left side of the gold gradient.

Back in the Gradient Editor, double-click on the color stop below the right side of the gradient:

Double-clicking the white color stop in the Gradient Editor

Double-clicking the right color stop.

And in the Color Picker, set R to , the G to and B to 81. Then click OK:

Changing the color for the right side of the gold gradient in Photoshop

Changing the color for the right side of the gold gradient.

Step Save the gold gradient as a preset

You'll need this gradient again, so save it as a preset.

In the Gradient Editor, name the gradient "Gold", and then click the New button to save it:

Saving the custom gradient in the Gradient Editor

Saving the custom gradient as a preset.

A thumbnail for the Gold gradient appears in the Presets area:

The new Gold gradient appears in the Presets area in the Gradient Editor

Photoshop adds a thumbnail for our new Gold gradient preset.

Click OK to close the Gradient Editor, but leave the Layer Style dialog box open.

Here's the text with the gold gradient applied:

The text colorized with the gold gradient.

Step Change the gradient Style to Reflected

Back in the Layer Style dialog box, change the Style of the gradient to Reflected:

Changing the gradient Style from Linear to Reflected.

Changing the Style option to Reflected.

This moves the darker gold color to the top and bottom of the text, with the lighter color passing through the middle:

The effect with the gradient Style set to Reflected.

Step Add a Bevel & Emboss layer effect

Along the left of the Layer Style dialog box is a list of all the layer effects we can choose from.

Select Bevel & Emboss by clicking directly on the effect's name:

Adding a Bevel and Emboss layer effect to the text

Adding a Bevel & Emboss layer effect.

And then clear away any previous custom settings by clicking the Reset to Default button:

Resetting the Bevel and Emboss options to the defaults in Photoshop

Resetting the Bevel & Emboss options to the defaults.

Step Change the Technique to Chisel Hard

In the Structure section, make sure the Style is set to Inner Bevel.

Then change the Technique to Chisel Hard:

Changing the Bevel and Emboss technique to Chisel Hard

Changing the Technique to Chisel Hard.

Step Change the Gloss Contour to Ring - Double

In the Shading section, click on the small arrow to the right of the Gloss Contour thumbnail. Make sure you click the arrow, not the thumbnail.

Then double-click on the Ring - Double contour to select it (third thumbnail from the left, bottom row):

Changing the Gloss Contour option to Ring - Double in Photoshop's Bevel and Emboss options

Changing the Gloss Contour option to Ring-Double.

Step Change the Angle and turn on Anti-Aliasing

Still in the Shading section, set the Angle to °.

Then turn on the Anti-aliased option to smooth out any jagged edges:

Selecting the Anti-aliased option

Setting the angle to ° and turning on anti-aliasing.

Step Set the Highlight and Shadow Opacity to 75%

To add more contrast to the effect, increase both the Highlight Opacity and the Shadow Opacity to 75%:

Increasing the Highlight and Shadow opacity values in Photoshop's Bevel and Emboss options

The Highlight Mode and Shadow Mode opacity options.

And here's the effect so far:

The text after applying Bevel and Emboss.

Step Increase the Size value to fill in the letters

To make the text look more like solid gold, close up the space inside the letters by increasing the Size of the Bevel and Emboss effect.

The easiest way to do that is to first click inside the Size value box to make it active. Then use the Up Arrow key on your keyboard to slowly increase the value. As you do, you'll see the letters filling in from the outer edges towards the centers.

The Size value you need will depend on the size of your text. For me, a value of 41 pixels does the job:

Increasing the Size value for the Bevel and Emboss layer style

Increasing the Size value.

And here's the gold effect with the letters filled in:

The gold text effect after increasing the Size value.

Step Increase the Depth value

Next, increase the Depth value by dragging its slider towards the right. This will enhance the lighting and add more contrast to the reflection in the letters. I'll set my Depth value to around %:

Increasing the Depth value for the Bevel and Emboss layer style

Increasing the Depth value.

And now the letters are really starting to look like gold:

Step Add an Inner Glow layer effect

Add an Inner Glow layer effect by clicking on its name on the left of the Layer Style dialog box:

Adding an Inner Glow layer effect to the gold text in Photoshop

Adding an Inner Glow layer effect.

Then clear away any previous settings by clicking Reset to Default:

Resetting the Inner Glow layer effect to the default settings

Resetting the Inner Glow settings to the defaults.

Change the Blend Mode of the Inner Glow from Screen to Multiply.

And set the Opacity to 50%:

Setting the blend mode to Multiply and the opacity to 50 percent

Setting the blend mode and opacity of the Inner Glow effect.

Next, change the color of the glow by clicking the color swatch:

Clicking the Inner Glow color swatch

Clicking the color swatch.

And in the Color Picker, choose a shade of orange by setting the R value to , G to and B to 31 (I sampled this color from a photo of a gold brick). Then click OK to the Color Picker:

Changing the inner glow color using the Color Picker

Choosing orange for the Inner Glow.

Finally, increase the Size of the glow until it completely fills the letters. In my case, I'll set the Size value to 75 px:

The Inner Glow layer style options

Increase the Size value.

When you're done, click OK to close the Layer Style dialog box.

Your gold effect should now look similar to this:

Selecting the original Type layer.

Step Add a Stroke around the letters

Then click the Layer Styles icon at the bottom:

Clicking the Layer Styles icon in the Layers panel

Clicking the Layer Styles icon.

And this time, choose Stroke:

Choosing a Stroke layer style in the Layers panel

Selecting a Stroke layer style.

In the Layer Style dialog box, click the Reset to Default button to clear any previous Stroke settings:

Resetting the Stroke options to the defaults.

Step Fill the stroke with the Gold gradient preset

Change the Fill Type of the stroke from Color to Gradient.

Then click on the small arrow to the right of the gradient swatch and select the "Gold" gradient we saved earlier by double-clicking on its thumbnail:

The Gradient options for the Stroke layer style

Changing the Fill Type to Gradient and choosing the custom Gold gradient.

Step Set the Style, Position and Size of the stroke

Change the Style of the gradient from Linear to Reflected.

Then set the Position of the stroke to Outside and increase the Size to around 8 pixels:

The Stroke options in the Layer Style dialog box

Changing the Style, Position and Size options.

And now we have a stroke around the text that’s set to the same colors as the text itself:

The effect after applying the gold gradient to the stroke

The effect after applying the gold gradient to the stroke.

Step Apply Bevel & Emboss to the stroke

We're going to apply another Bevel & Emboss effect, not to the letters but to the stroke.

Click on the words Bevel & Emboss on the left of the Layer Style dialog box:

The effect after applying the gold gradient to the stroke

Clicking on Bevel & Emboss.

Don't click Reset to Default this time, since we're going to use most of the same settings as before.

Instead, simply change the Style from Inner Bevel to Stroke Emboss. The Technique should be set to Chisel Hard.

Set the Size value to the same size you chose for the stroke, which in my case was 8 pixels:

The Style, Technique and Size options for the Stroke layer style

Changing the Style, Technique and Size options.

Double-checking the other Bevel & Emboss settings

Make sure all of the other Bevel & Emboss settings are the same as before. If for some reason they're not, you'll need to change them:

Depth: %
Angle: °
Gloss Contour: Ring- Double
Anti-Aliased: Checked
Highlight Opacity: 75%
Shadow Opacity: 75%

Below Bevel & Emboss on the left of the Layer Style dialog box is an effect named Contour. Click inside the checkbox to turn it on.

This will further enhance the lighting around the stroke:

Selecting the Contour style under Bevel and Emboss.

Selecting Contour for the stroke.

And here's what the gold text now looks like with Bevel & Emboss applied to the stroke:

The gold text effect so far.

The stroke now shares the same lighting and reflection effects as the type.

Step Apply an Outer Glow layer effect

Let's finish off our layer styles by adding a faint glow around the text, as if light was reflecting off the gold letters.

Click directly on the words Outer Glow on the left of the Layer Style dialog box:

Selecting the Outer Glow layer style.

Selecting Outer Glow.

Set the Opacity of the glow to 40%, and then click the color swatch:

Setting the Opacity and changing the color of the Outer Glow

Setting the opacity and changing the color of the Outer Glow.

In the Color Picker, set the R value to , G to and B to 31, and then click OK:

We're done with our layer effects, so click OK to close the Layer Style dialog box.

And here's the gold text effect with all of our layer effects applied, including the new Outer Glow:

The gold text effect is nearly complete.

The effect is nearly complete.

Step Select the "GOLD copy" layer

We'll finish off the gold text effect by adding sparkles to the letters. And to do that, we'll need to add the sparkles on their own separate layer.

In the Layers panel, click on the "GOLD copy" layer (the top layer) to select it:

Selecting the top Type layer in the Layers panel.

Selecting the top Type layer.

Step Add a new layer above the text

Then press and hold the Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) key on your keyboard and click the Add New Layer icon:

Step Select the Brush Tool

We'll create the sparkles using one of Photoshop's brushes.

Select the Brush Tool from the Toolbar:

Selecting the Brush Tool in Photoshop

Selecting the Brush Tool.

Step Select the "Crosshatch 4" brush in the Assorted Brushes set

The brush we need for our sparkles, "Crosshatch 4", is included with Photoshop as part of the Assorted Brushes set. But the Assorted Brushes are not loaded automatically, so we'll need to load the set ourselves. And this brings us to another difference between Photoshop CC and CS6.

In Photoshop CC , Adobe redesigned the brush panels. So use the steps below to load the brush based on your version of Photoshop.

How to load the Assorted Brushes in Photoshop CC

In Photoshop CC, with the Brush Tool selected, right-click (Win) / Control-click (Mac) inside the document to open the Brush Preset Picker.

Then click the menu icon in the upper right:

Clicking the Brush Preset Picker's menu icon in Photoshop CC

Clicking the Brush Preset Picker's menu icon in Photoshop CC.

And choose Legacy Brushes from the menu:

Double-clicking the Crosshatch 4 brush thumbnail.

How to load the Assorted Brushes in Photoshop CS6

In Photoshop CS6, with the Brush Tool selected, right-click (Win) / Control-click (Mac) inside the document to open the Brush Preset Picker.

Then click the menu icon in the top right:

Clicking the menu icon in the Brush Preset picker in Photoshop

Clicking the Brush Preset Picker's menu icon.

And choose the Assorted Brushes set from the menu:

Loading the Assorted Brushes set into Photoshop

Choosing "Assorted Brushes" from the menu.

Photoshop will ask if you want to replace your current brushes with the new brushes. Choose Append to add them to the existing brushes:

Appending the Assorted Brushes set to the default brushes in Photoshop

Adding the Assorted Brushes in with the current brushes.

Back in the Brush Preset Picker, scroll down through the brushes until you find the 48 pixel Crosshatch 4 brush. Look for the brush that looks like an "X" with the number 48 under it (48 means that the default size of the brush is 48 pixels).

Double-click on its thumbnail to select the brush and close the Brush Preset Picker:

Selecting the Crosshatch 4 brush in the Brush Preset picker

Double-clicking the "Crosshatch 4" brush thumbnail.

Step Sample a gold color to use for the sparkles

Choose a color for the sparkles by sampling a color from the text.

Press and hold the Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) key on your keyboard to temporarily switch from the Brush Tool to the Eyedropper Tool, and then click on a light gold color to sample it.

I'll choose a light area from the letter "O":

Sampling a gold color from the text with the Eyedropper Tool

Holding Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) and sampling a color from the text.

Step Click on the letters to add random sparkles

Release your Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) key to switch back to the Brush Tool. And then click in a few random spots around the text to add your sparkles.

For added variety, change the brush size before each click by pressing the left or right bracket keys on your keyboard. The left bracket key makes the brush smaller and the right bracket key makes it larger.

Don't add too many sparkles or you'll overdo it. A couple of larger and smaller ones is all you really need. If you don't like the last sparkle you added, press Ctrl+Z (Win) / Command+Z (Mac) on your keyboard to undo it, and then try again.

Here, I've added a couple of sparkles to the letter "G", a third, smaller sparkle at the bottom of the letter "L", and a fourth one in the upper left of the letter "D":

The gold text effect after adding some sparkles

The effect after adding some sparkles.

Step Lower the opacity of the sparkles (optional)

And finally, if the sparkles are looking a bit too bright, simply lower the opacity of the "Sparkles" layer.

You'll find the Opacity option in the upper right of the Layers panel. I'll lower mine to 80%:

Lowering the opacity of the Sparkles layer

Reduce the brightness of the sparkles by lowering the layer opacity.

And with that, we're done! Here, after lowering the opacity of my "Sparkles" layer, is my final gold text effect:

Lowering the layer opacity

The final result.

And there we have it! That's how to create gold text in Photoshop!

Now that you've created the gold text, check out Part 2 where I show you how to easily replace the background of the effect!

Photo-Realistic Imaging Project

Custom brushes and the advanced features inside the Brushes palette can be useful for any type of illustration or design work for Web or print. However, I find them particularly important when working to create photo-realistic art. In this project, you'll design a photo-realistic golf ball scene using custom brush features to give your image a lifelike appearance.

Project Brief: Photo-Realism from Scratch

Here's your chance to impress (and fool) your friends. Your goal when working with photo-realistic graphics in your design projects will be to make the viewer ask, "Is it a photograph or is it Photoshop?"

Figure Fore! Tee up your Brush tool as you embark on a photo-realistic journey to re-create a golf ball in the rough.


Your client, a leading golf ball manufacturer, wants to showcase his product up-close-and-personal in a realistic situation.

Photoshop files for the golf ball and my golf scene are available at the online download site. You can use the golf ball in your illustration, but do not use the sample scene as your template file. Feel free to see how specific elements of the scene were created, but I strongly encourage you to create your own scene from scratch. Most of the layers are clearly labeled to help you explore the file further and see how I created it.

Figure The golf ball from the online download site should be the only part of the image you don't create from scratch.


Project Summary
  • Brainstorm a scene for the golf ball, and create a sky relevant to the scene.

    STUDIO SESSIONS

    casinoextra.fr

    Post this chapter's project online for feedback from professional designers.

    access code: STUDIOp


  • Consider how the lighting would affect the coloring of the grass, and set Color Dynamics accordingly.

  • Use a default and/or custom brush to create realistic grass in the foreground and background, blurring as necessary for a depth-of-field effect.

  • Expand the scene using a custom brush to create trees, birds, or other realistic features.

Project Steps

I created the example version using one of Photoshop's default brushes and a golf ball I extracted from another image. The effects used most prominently in creating this illustration were the Shape Dynamics, Scattering, and Color Dynamics sections of the advanced Brushes palette. Let's look at my steps.

Use the RGB color mode to create your image. The final dimensions of the file should be by pixels.

1. Background and Lighting

When you design your golf ball scene, think about the depth and lighting on the landscape. I included a blue gradient background behind my scene to establish that it is a bright, sunny day.

Try various gradients and shades of color to get the sky the way you like it for your version. It can be bright blue like mine, gray and overcast, or even a vivid sunrise or sunset. Don't worry about clouds just yetyou'll add those later.

When you consider your sky and how bright the lighting is, consider that the grass will need to display various green hues that represent this type of lighting. You'll want to use brighter, highly saturated greens for sunny daytime colors and slightly less saturated colors if it's overcast outside. Plus, not all golf courses are plush green all year round. (Mine are, of course, because I live in Florida.) This would be a great place to expand and come up with some autumn colors. And yes, nighttime golf does exist, glow-in-the-dark golf balls and all. In that case, the grass would need to be dark shades of blue, with a moonlit sky in the background, perhaps.

All of this translates to choosing an appropriate foreground and background color when working with the Color Dynamics section of the advanced Brushes palette.

Figure I applied these custom Color Dynamics settings to Photoshop's default grass brush. Notice that I used the Jitter sliders to make my grass vary widely in brightness, somewhat in saturation, and just a bit in hue. Too much Hue jitter and my grass would have been multicolored!


Recall that the Color Dynamics settings apply variations of color between the current foreground and background shades, which in my case are a light green and dark green.

With the foreground and background colors chosen, you can begin creating your grass.

2. Foreground and Grass

I created my grass using a default brush, included with Photoshop, which you'll find in your menu of brushes. However, feel free to create your own grass brush for a more advanced application. Also, you may want to place some rough, longer grass in one part of the image using the default brush, and short, well-groomed grass in another with a custom brushas on a real golf course.

To create a custom brush for the grass, make a handful of grass in a new document using any drawing or painting method you choose. Select the area of the image you'd like to use as a brush, and choose Edit > Define Brush Preset. Your new brush will now appear in the brush tip presets seen in the Brushes palette.

Figure These are my Shape Dynamics and Scattering settings, but yours may differ depending on the effect you want.


Several grass layers were created to portray the illusion of depth, with some in front of the ball and some behind. The golf ball is not right up against our fictitious camera, so you can blur any grass in front of it to create a depth-of-field effect. The same goes for grass behind the golf ball. You can achieve these effects after you create the grass by applying a Gaussian Blur filter (Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur) to those layers. Your blurred areas may vary depending on where your ball is in the scene.

Figure Notice that the closest and farthest layers have a slight blur.


Also, as objects recede into the distance, something known as atmospheric perspective takes place. This causes the colors to appear less saturated with color and more gray. Next time you're around a mountain range, see if you can notice it. This effect can be applied to the golf scene by adding a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to the background layer(s) of grass (Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation) and reducing the saturation setting.

The image still needs a little something, don't you think? We'll add to it next.

3. Ideas for Expansion

With your pretty sky, lush grass, and ball sitting in the scene, your next task is to expand your image to include at least one other element that uses brushes. You can include nonbrushed elements too, but something created with the Brush tool should be your first priority.

In my example, I used clouds. I'll admit I extracted my clouds from a separate photograph. But you can create your own clouds with the Brush tool and some experimenting. You don't need to include clouds per seI'd really like to see some creativity here.

Figure Here's my final version with some clouds. What will you put in yours?


Here are some other ideas for expanding this project with brushes:

  • Create a custom brush of a tiny, faraway, flying bird, and populate the sky with some of them.

  • Design a forest in the far background of the scene. Use Color Dynamics and lots of jitters to achieve a random look.

Photo-Realistic Imaging Project

Custom brushes and the advanced features inside the Brushes palette can be useful for any type of illustration or design work for Web or print. However, I find them particularly important when working to create photo-realistic art. In this project, you'll design a photo-realistic golf ball scene using custom brush features to give your image a lifelike appearance.

Project Brief: Photo-Realism from Scratch

Here's your chance to impress (and fool) your friends. Your goal when working with photo-realistic graphics in your design projects will be to make the viewer ask, golf photoshop brushes, "Is it a photograph or is it Photoshop?"

Figure Fore! Tee up your Brush tool as you embark on a photo-realistic journey to re-create a golf ball in the rough.


Your client, a leading golf ball manufacturer, wants to showcase his product up-close-and-personal in a realistic situation.

Photoshop files for the golf ball and my golf scene are available at the online download site. You can use the golf ball in your illustration, but do not use the sample scene as your template file, golf photoshop brushes. Feel free to see how specific elements of the scene were created, but I strongly encourage you to create your own scene from scratch. Most of the layers are clearly labeled to help you explore the file further and see how I created it.

Figure The golf ball from the online download site should be the only part golf photoshop brushes the image you don't create from scratch.


Project Summary

  • Consider how the lighting would affect the coloring of the grass, and set Color Dynamics accordingly.

  • Use a default and/or custom brush to create realistic grass in the foreground and background, blurring as necessary for a depth-of-field effect.

  • Expand the scene using a custom brush to create trees, birds, or other realistic features.

Project Steps

I created the example version using one of Photoshop's default brushes and a golf ball I extracted from another image. The effects used most prominently in creating this illustration were the Shape Dynamics, Scattering, and Color Dynamics sections of the advanced Brushes palette. Let's look at my steps.

Use the RGB color mode to create your image. The final dimensions of the file should be by pixels.

1. Background and Lighting

When you design your golf ball scene, think about the depth and lighting on the landscape. I included a blue gradient background behind my scene to establish that it is a bright, sunny day.

Try various gradients and shades of color to get the sky the way you like it for your version. It can be bright blue like mine, gray and overcast, or even a vivid sunrise or sunset. Don't worry about clouds just yetyou'll add those later.

When you consider your sky and how bright the lighting is, consider that the grass will need to display various green hues that represent this type of lighting, golf photoshop brushes. You'll want to use brighter, highly saturated greens for sunny daytime colors and slightly less saturated colors if it's overcast outside, golf photoshop brushes. Plus, not all golf courses are plush green all year round. (Mine are, of course, because I live in Florida.) Golf photoshop brushes would be a great place to expand and come up with some autumn colors. And golf photoshop brushes, nighttime golf does exist, glow-in-the-dark golf balls and all. In that case, the grass would need to be dark shades of blue, with a moonlit sky in the background, golf photoshop brushes, perhaps.

Create A Gold Text Effect In Photoshop CC and CS6

How to create a gold text effect in Photoshop

Turn type into gold with this step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to create shiny gold letters and text in Photoshop! Now fully updated for Photoshop CC !

Written by Steve Patterson.

In this tutorial, I show you how to easily create a gold text effect with Photoshop using simple layer effects and gradients. And to make the gold letters really shine, we'll finish off by adding sparkles to the text using one of Photoshop's brushes!

I've updated this tutorial to include recent changes to Photoshop, golf photoshop brushes, like the new Brushes panel in Photoshop CC and the new Free Transform shortcuts in CC So for the best results, you'll want to be using the latest version of Photoshop CC. But where needed, I also include the original steps so that Photoshop CS6 users can still follow along.

Here's what the gold text effect will look like when we're done:

The final effect.

Let's get started!

How to create gold text in Photoshop

I'll start with the steps for setting up the document and adding the initial text. But if you have already added your text, you can skip to Step 8 where we start turning the text into gold.

Step 1: Create a new Photoshop document

Create a new document by going up to the File menu in the Menu Bar and choosing New:

Creating a new document in Photoshop

Going to File > New.

And in the New Document dialog box, set the Width of your document to Pixels, the Height to Pixels, and the Resolution to 72 pixels/inch.

Then in Photoshop CC, click the Create button, golf photoshop brushes, or in CS6, click OK:

The width, <a href=swim guide app and resolution of the new Photoshop document" width="" height="">

Setting the Width, Height and Resolution of the new document.

The new document appears:

The new Photoshop document that will be used for the gold text effect

The new Photoshop document.

Step 2: Fill the document with black

To help the gold letters stand out, change the golf photoshop brushes color of the document from white to black.

Go up to the Edit menu in the Menu bar and golf photoshop brushes Fill:

Choosing the Fill command from the Edit menu in Photoshop

Going to Edit > Fill.

Then in the Fill dialog box, set the Contents to Black and click OK:

Setting the Contents option to Black in Photoshop's Fill dialog box

Changing Contents to Black.

Step 3: Select the Type Tool

To add your text, golf photoshop brushes, select the Type Tool from the toolbar:

Selecting the Type Tool in Photoshop

Selecting the Type Tool.

Step 4: Choose your font

Then in the Options Bar, choose your font. For this tutorial, I'll keep things simple and use Times New Roman Bold, but you can use any font you like.

Set the Size of the type to 72 pt. We'll resize the type once we've added it, but this will give us the largest preset size for now:

Choosing a font and setting the size to 72 pt.

Step 5: Set the type color to white

To see the text against the black background, set the initial color of the type to white. We'll add the gold colors later using layer effects.

Click on the color swatch in the Options Bar:

Clicking the type color swatch in Photoshop's Options Bar

Clicking the color swatch.

And in the Color Picker, choose white by golf photoshop brushes the R, G and B values (Red, Green and Blue) each to . Then close the Color Picker by clicking OK:

Changing the type color to white in Photoshop's Color Picker

Changing the type color to white.

Step 6: Add your text to the document

Click inside the document and add your text. I'll type the word "GOLD".

Don't worry that the text is too small. We'll resize it in the next step:

Adding the text to the Photoshop document

Adding the text.

To accept the text, click the checkmark in the Options Bar:

Clicking the checkmark to accept the text

Clicking the checkmark to accept the text.

Step 7: Resize and reposition the text with Free Transform

To resize the text, and move it into the center of the canvas, go up to the Edit menu and choose Free Transform:

Selecting the Free Transform command in Photoshop

Going to Edit > Free Transform.

Then resize the text by clicking and dragging any of the corner handles that golf photoshop brushes around it.

But this is where we run into a difference between Photoshop CC golf photoshop brushes CS6.

How to resize the text in Photoshop CC

As of Photoshop CCFree Transform now locks the aspect ratio golf photoshop brushes as you drag the handles, so you don't distort the shapes of the letters as you resize the text. This is the behavior we want, so if you're using Photoshop CC, you can just drag the handles without adding any modifier keys.

How wombat fence resize the text in Photoshop CS6

But in CS6, you need to press and hold your Shift key as you drag the handles to lock the aspect ratio in place. And when you're done resizing the text, make sure you release your mouse button before releasing the Shift key.

How to move the text into the center of the document

Once you've resized the text, move it into the center of the canvas by clicking inside the Free Transform box and dragging the text into position.

When you're done, press Enter (Win) / Return (Mac) on your keyboard to close Free Transform:

Using Free Transform to resize and center the text in the Photoshop document

Resizing the text by dragging the corner handles.

Step 8: Make a copy of the Type layer

Now that we've added the text, we're ready to start turning the letters into gold.

In the Layers panel, make a copy of the Type layer by dragging it down onto the Add New Layer icon at the bottom:

Duplicating the 'GOLD' Type layer

Dragging the Type layer onto the Add New Layer icon.

A copy of the Type layer appears above the original:

Photoshop's Layers panel showing the 'GOLD copy' Type layer

The "GOLD copy" layer appears.

Clean up your Layers panel in Photoshop with these essential tips!

Step 9: Color the text with a Gradient Overlay layer effect

To turn the text into gold, we'll use Photoshop's layer effects. And the first effect we need is Gradient Overlay. We'll use it to add some gold colors to the letters.

Still in the Layers panel, make sure the "GOLD copy" layer is selected. Then click the Layer Styles icon (the "fx" icon) at the bottom:

Clicking the Layer Styles icon in Photoshop's Layers panel

Clicking the Layer Styles icon.

And in the layer effects menu, choose Gradient Overlay:

Selecting a Gradient Overlay layer effect in Photoshop

Step Save the gold gradient as a preset

You'll need this gradient again, so save it as a preset.

In the Gradient Editor, name the gradient "Gold", and then click the golf photoshop brushes button to save it:

Saving the custom gradient in the Gradient Editor

Saving the custom gradient as a preset.

A thumbnail for the Gold gradient appears in the Presets area:

The text after applying Bevel and Emboss.

Step Increase the Size value to fill in the letters

To make the text golf photoshop brushes more like solid gold, close up the space inside the letters by increasing the Size of the Bevel and Emboss effect.

The easiest way to do that is to first click inside the Size value box to make it active. Then use the Up Arrow key golf photoshop brushes your keyboard to slowly increase the value. As you do, you'll see the letters filling in from the outer edges towards the centers.

The Size value you need will depend on the size of your text. For me, a value of 41 pixels does the job:

Increasing the <b>Golf photoshop brushes</b> value for the Bevel and Emboss layer style

Increasing the Size value.

And here's the gold effect with the letters filled in:

The gold text effect after adjusting the Bevel and Emboss size value in Photoshop

The gold text effect after increasing the Size value.

Step Increase the Depth value

Next, increase the Depth value by dragging its slider towards the right. This will enhance the lighting and add more contrast to the reflection in the letters, golf photoshop brushes. I'll set my Depth value to around %:

Increasing the Depth value for the Bevel and Emboss layer style

Increasing the Depth value.

And now the letters are really starting to look like gold:

golf photoshop brushes alt="The gold text effect after increasing the Depth value">

The effect after increasing the Depth value.

Step Add an Inner Glow layer effect

Add an Inner Golf photoshop brushes layer effect by clicking on its name on the left of the Layer Style dialog box:

Change the Blend Mode of the Inner Glow from Screen to Multiply.

And set the golf photoshop brushes to 50%:

Setting the blend mode to Multiply and the opacity to 50 percent

Setting the blend mode and opacity of the Inner Glow effect.

Next, change the color of the glow by clicking the color swatch:

Clicking the Inner Glow color swatch

Clicking the color swatch.

And in the Color Picker, choose a shade of orange by setting the R value to , G to and B to 31 (I sampled this color from a photo of a gold brick). Then click OK to the Color Picker:

Changing the inner glow color using the Color Picker

Choosing orange for the Inner Glow.

Finally, increase the Size of the glow until it completely fills the letters. In my case, I'll set the Size value to golf photoshop brushes px:

The Inner Glow layer style options

Increase the Size value.

When you're done, click OK to close the Layer Style dialog box.

Your gold effect should now look similar to this:

Step Apply Bevel & Emboss to the stroke

We're going to apply another Bevel & Emboss effect, not to the letters but to the stroke.

Click on the words Bevel & Emboss on the left of the Layer Style dialog box:

The effect after applying the gold gradient to the stroke

Clicking on Bevel & Emboss.

Don't click Reset to Default this time, since we're going to use most of the same settings as before.

Instead, simply change the Style from Inner Bevel to Stroke Emboss. The Technique should be set to Chisel Hard.

Set the Size value to the same size you chose for the stroke, which in my case was 8 pixels:
