To create the gold text, we'll use Photoshop's layer styles, and we'll create our own custom gold color gradient! We'll even add a few sparkles to the text using one of Photoshop's brushes to make our gold letters really shine. I'll be using Photoshop CC but every step is fully compatible with Photoshop CS6 and with earlier versions of Photoshop.

WHERE ARE THE ASSORTED BRUSHES IN PHOTOSHOP CC 2018?
Adobe made changes to the brushes in Photoshop CC 2018. To access the Assorted Brushes, click the menu icon in the Brush Preset picker and choose Legacy Brushes from the bottom of the menu. Click OK to restore the Legacy Brushes, and then scroll down to the bottom of the brushes where you'll find a new "Legacy Brushes" folder. Twirl the folder open to find all of the original brushes from CC 2017 and earlier, including the Assorted Brushes.

Beautifully clear walkthrough of this technique. Perfectly modulated voiceover. I came here hoping to learn how to add gold text to some pictures - I wasn't expecting this level of expertise. Subbed and grateful.
I think it's better to show the long way of choosing commands so you know where to actually find them. You can always learn keyboard shortcuts later. But if all you know is the shortcut, and you forget the shortcut, you're lost.
Salute You. Step by Step, slow and steady STILL wins the race. Because here slow and steady does not mean slow, its about concentrate and focus on AIM. Created same golden effect in one attempt. THANKS BRO.
Hi, I'm not sure if this is the problem, but make sure your Working Space in Photoshop's Color settings (Edit > Color Settings) is set to sRGB. If the Working Space is set to Adobe RGB or something else, the colors may look different.
I think the first few parts where you brief us about how to create a new document and stuff were a bit too dragged otherwise the video was really good and helped me a lot. Thanks for the tutorial! Its a much better and creative way of applying old texture rather than using blend modes
Edit: I think a few of the parts were unnecessary and could have been skipped. Also, please try using shortcuts instead of doing it the original way
