How to create gold text in Photoshop! Turn letters into gold with this easy to create text effect in Photoshop CC and CS6. ► LATEST VIDEO: Photoshop SLICED TEXT Effect: https://youtu.be/1YDZfmfxNgo Complete text version and PDF on my website: http://bit.ly/gold-text-effect ► Watch Part 2: How to remove the background: http://bit.ly/gold_text_2 ► Get Photoshop CC 2019 here: https://bit.ly/Get_Photoshop_CC 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. ► Subscribe to my channel: http://bit.ly/2ndmlwv WHERE ARE THE ASSORTED BRUSHES IN PHOTOSHOP CC 2018 and 2019? Adobe made changes to the brushes as of 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.

The very best explanation i've ever come across , voice so relaxing and soothing. A softer music in the background would have landed you a billion views. I think you should repost this again.

This was FANTASTIC...in depth and truly helpful. Don't let the ones saying too much or too long discourage you. They are lazy and has yet to grasp the "skip forward" method. I hope you don't change your teaching method. I learned and refreshed some of the tools I simply stopped using. Again big thanks!

Shanelle P (26 days ago)
because i have retina display on my macbook would the settings have to change? it looks kind of pixelated...thanks!
Shanelle P (25 days ago)
​+Photoshop Essentials it was under 100%... i think the retina has something to do with the letters not being crystal clear i have cs6...would i have to play around with the image size?
Photoshop Essentials (26 days ago)
Hi Shanelle, when you say it looks pixelated, are you zooming in closer than 100%? Photoshop will always show pixels when you're zoomed in beyond 100%, even with text.
Ellen Breumlund (27 days ago)
Hello Photoshop Essentials, it's a great tutorial! Though I have an issue with the outer glow part. When I pick the color #e8801f (which you used), it just turns out very less saturated, and not the strong orange color as you picked. I made sure that I'm doing it on the 1st text layer. Will you help me?
saravanan saravanan (1 month ago)
Hello Sir, thank you very much for outstanding way of teaching. i have a question which found on the comments below, some were asking on behalf of public and i also eager to know. is this text effect is editable, i mean is there any way to change font or text after Done the text effect?

Does it apply to any spelling other than GOLD
Photoshop Essentials (1 month ago)
You can use the effect with any word you like. Although using a gold effect on the word "SILVER" may be confusing.

May I know what is the text font you are using?

I used Impact for the effect, but any font with wide, thick letters should work.

Nice Tutorial. That Alt+click to create a new layer is new to me; I just wondering, how do you change the color marker of layer before the mode 11:40 in existing layer? Edit: Never mind, I found it: 'Layer' > 'Layer Property...', but is there another way for quicker access? Like to renaming layer just double click the layer name, open effects window just double click the layer beside the layer name, layer mode/layer opacity just there.
DoesntMatter851 (1 month ago)
Mannnnnnnnnnnn I SO LOVE THIS TUTORIAL. I wish all tutorials were like this. If it wasn't for the fact that my Photoshop is in Dutch i could have made everything just by listening to his instructions. I truly love it!

just in case you are as retarded as I am and you are trapped in gray-scale mode check "image" and them "mode" and change it to RGB... it was a little bit awkward when I realized that...

Brilliant tutorial, i followed it to the letter (sic) and it came out exactly as i should, i just changed the text to my own liking but the effect was just the same. Ignore the negative comments, i've been using computers for over 30 years, had Photoshop on the PC ten years ago before i went over to the Mac, so i'm just getting back into using it again. It isn't too long, it's just long enough to keep up with the instructions. Cheers.
