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 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.

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!
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?
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?
everything was going good until he sparkles section. i do not have all those options in my brush section, how you had a long list to chose and you went with assorted? i dont have that long list. also can you show us how you sampled the gold that way we can change up the gold?
This is cool. I have to ask, do you actually do designs for people ?
I am after a name design of our Band name to go on a Black Band stage Backdrop we want making.
I don't have photoshop so am unable to do the design myself, and I stumbled across your video when searching youtube for inspiration.
I'm not done watching your whole tutorial but oh MY GOD THANK YOU. I was about to give up on finding efficient, clear guidance on how to use Photoshop for text! Your tutorial is by FAR the best one I've come across! Thank you so much!
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?
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.
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!
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.
