In this tutorial we will lean how to create a Dynamic Text effect in photoshop. For this tutorial we need a nice fractal. So let’s have a look at our final result.
Create a new layer with 900px width and 700px height.
Select the type tool and add some text. Make sure you use the color # 00ffff.
Now open the fractal and paste it on our main file.
Now uncheck the fractal layer and click on the text layer. Then select the pen tool and create a path along the text.
Now right Click on the path and click on “Make selection”. Now select the fractal layer and click on Edit> Copy merge. And then paste it. And change the blending mode to “Overlay”.
Select the soft Round brush, with foreground color # ec008c. Use t on the edges randomly.
Now change the blending mode to “Color”.
Now we’ll create a reflection of our text. For this duplicate the layer and then press CTRL+ T, then right click on it and select “Flip Vertical”. Now select the Eraser Tool and use it on the lower part of our reflection.
Select the reflection layer and reduce the opacity to 50%. And we are done.
