Photoshop layer styles are the first tool beginners learn to enhance text effects. In this tutorial I’m going to show you how powerful and flexible this tool is. We will go beyond the overused gradient overlay and 1px stroke effects. We will use patterns and some useful tricks to create a 3D text effect!
The right pattern can be the graphical element that will enhance your site design. Instead of using flat colors to fill the background, I generally prefer to play with small tileable patterns. In this way I can add a textured effect (that I love!) to the site, along with obtaining quick page loads. Patterns are very small elements, and once created, can fill the site background with a simple css property. In this tutorial I will show you how to create patterns from scratch, and how to make them stand out in your next design.
