80 text effect tutorials for Photoshop

80 text effects for Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop carries more than 25 years surprising us with the work tools that it is capable of providing us with. Through this program we can create incredible compositions and effects that go through digital photo manipulation and any visual work (including motion graphics). But if we are able to make this powerful application compatible with other applications from Adobe, we will achieve more professional results. As we know, the development of texts and fonts is something that has a great weight within the identity construction of any proposal, therefore, especially in the world of advertising, this type of work takes on special importance.

It is highly recommended that we try to review the best softwares that are at our full disposal today (yes, some are free and others are premium or paid). If you want to dedicate yourself to the world of lettering or dive into typographic design, I would recommend that you make use of giants like Cinema 4D, Illustration, and even dare to experiment with programs like Paint tool Leaves, of Japanese origin and very simple but effective and of course with applications such as Lightroom or Adobe After Effects if you want to take a leap into the world of animation and want to give life and dynamism to your projects. Today we are going to take a short tour of the most surprising effects in Adobe Photohop with the help of various designers who altruistically have shared on the web what are the methods to achieve good quality and a stimulating result.

What kind of effects are recommended in each project?

And is that today there are all kinds of projects that have specific needs. It will not be the same if we face the design of the cover of a novel, the promotional poster of a short film and much less if we dedicate ourselves to the world of corporate identity and the development of visual solutions that fit the identity of companies and clients we work for. In the latter case we have a series of connotations such as absolute simplicity and ease of reading and recognition by users, something that especially in the world of advertising and the promotion of events and products will often be avoided. looking for complex solutions and finishes full of nuances and details.

For this reason, I recommend that if you are embarking on the world of design and are attracted to this type of work, before you try to document yourself at a general level and especially examine what type of projects are moving in each sector and in each case. If you work for a client and you need to face specific demands, it will be very important that you take into account what are the features that you must preserve and which ones you must develop or create on your own to add more conceptual weight to the identity in question. Briefings are very important documents in the day-to-day life of a graphic designer because they will help us to gather together all the information we need about our client and about the project that we are going to develop. Having a briefing will help us to be more accurate and to provide our clients with exactly what they are looking for. You must ensure that in addition to conforming to the trend of the company or the client, you must provide the desired technical characteristics for the result to be applicable. Of course, once we have embarked on the documentation process and we have extracted the clues about what we need, it is time to improvise and give life and creativity to the concepts that have previously been within our theoretical and strategic plan.

Today we will focus on this last phase and We will help you out with some proposals that will provide you with an extra dose of inspiration to develop good work. If you're trying to learn how to create stunning, professional-grade text effects, you've just come to the right place. Today we will share a fairly wide selection of effects with their respective tutorials in the form of lessons for Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Cinema 4D. Whether you are a professional or if you are introducing yourself in this area, I am sure that these exercises will benefit you a lot because with them you will perfect your technique and learn to master new tricks and work systems that will make you more professional and perfect your skills. As you can see, the level of work of each of these examples is different. In case you are introducing yourself into design, it is recommended that you start with the most basic exercises and gradually increase the level.

Before going to our selection, it should be noted that these exercises are not in Spanish, many of them are in English, so it will be highly recommended that you get a translator or a tool to understand them perfectly, although all are included with their respective images and illustrating the entire creation process step by step, so I am sure that it will be tremendously easy for you to get hold of each of these exercises in the form of tutorials.

Logos and branding

80 text effects for Photoshop

Minimalism prevails in the design of logos and corporate identity. It is perhaps of all the areas that we are going to see, the one that provides us with more defined canons and lines of development. Its lines are very easy to predict, we only have to stop to analyze the functions that a logo fulfills. The main requirements that the logo of any type of brand must meet are mainly:

  • Guarantee a differentiation of the business it represents.
  • It should be easily recognizable, in a few seconds the essence must be captured.
  • Must be applicable to all types of supports, in any condition, composition and in any proportion.

The field is much broader and does not have as many functional or practical "conditions". If we could establish a premise, it is its ability to impact and stand out in environments full of information. The complexity of the compositions, therefore, is usually much higher since it requires a greater load of photo manipulation and digital post-production. Although in the design of corporate identity flat design prevails for its simplicity and easy application, in advertising complex effects and three-dimensionality they are much more present.


Within the video we could say that "anarchy" reigns because all the stylistic lines are viable and can be totally effective. In recent times, material design and minimalism have found an important niche in graphic design applied to video. This also has a lot to do with the fact that branding and corporate identity have crossed borders and now more and more all types of companies are jumping into the world of video to promote themselves.
