Fire Text in Photoshop
In this tutorial, I will teach you how to make "fire text"
[b:b24d0f641a]1[/b:b24d0f641a]. Start of with a canvas of 600 X 160. You can make it any size you want, but for the purposes of this tutorial, I will be using 600 X 160.
Use a simple, thick font and write out your text. I will be using "Eras Bold ITC" for my text.
[b:b24d0f641a]2[/b:b24d0f641a]. Next, add the following color balance layers in the exact order. (To do this, go to Layer >> New Adjustment Layer >> Color Balance )
[b:b24d0f641a]3[/b:b24d0f641a]. Make sure your text layer is under your color balance layers. Rasterize your text layer. Now comes the fire part. Choose your smudging tool, and pick out an appropriate sized brush. Start smudging your text to make it look like fire.
Be sure to include the "wavy" parts at the top. When you're finished, it should look something like this:
I hope this tutorial helped!
*Note: If you place anything ABOVE the color balance layers, it will not be affected. So if you want something to be normal instead of orange-ish, just place it in a layer that is above the color balance.
