In this tutorial we will learn how to make Clean Text with Effects and Reflexion in Photoshop.
Go to File - New and create a document with 500x200 pixels and black background (select "Paint Bucket Tools" and fill the background with black)
Pick the "Horizontal Type Tool" (T) and write Clean Text Effect.
Century Gothic Font - Regular - Size 40pt - Anti-Aliasing Smooth
Select from the Layers Panel, the Cleant Text Effect Layer, right click and select Blending Options.
Right Click on the "Clean Text Effect" Layer and select Duplicate Layer and click OK.
Select the Second "Clean Text Effect" Layer and Right Click on it and select Rasterize Type and use SHIFT + Down Arrow to move the duplicated text under the original.
Once you rasterized the second layer, go to Edit - Tranform - Flip Vertical.
Select "Gradient Tool" and set the color 1 to black and color 2 to white.
Press "Q" and Hold Shift and draw the mask from a little bit up near center and move a little bit down.
Press again "Q" and you've made a masked selection. Now press "Delete" to delete our selection.
- Set the Opacity of the reflexion text to 50%.
- For additional effect duplicate the original Text Layer and set opacity yo 30% and move for about 2 up moves and 2 left moves.
In the end you should have a similar result.
