Here is a quick and easy tutorial for making your text 3D!


Start off with a new document of any size you like. Type some text of your choice in any colour you like with any font that is not very curvy(don't use cursive...) If you decide to use black, go for a darker grey. You will see why in a bit.

Right click on the text layer and select Blending Options.

In this powerful tool, go to the stroke option and use the settings in the picture(2px outside stroke). For your colour, you want to use a colour that is a shade lower then yours. If you are using dark grey, use black. Note: if you are using small text, try doing a 1px border instead.

Duplicate this layer.

Now move it one pixel down and one pixel to the right. The best way to do this is to get the positioning tool and press your right arrow key once, and your down arrow key once.

Repeat this 4 or 5 times until the desired thickness has been achieved.

Select all the layers by clicking the top layer and then clicking the bottom layer while holding shift.

For an extra effect, go into the blending options for the new smart object and apply a 3px stroke in a dark colour of your choice.
