3D Text in Photoshop

Posted on 28th December 2018
 For this tutorial we will use the free font “Whimsy”.

1 - In Photoshop, create a “New Document” and use White as your “Background” color.



2 - Select the “Type Tool” (T), choose your font (we used “Whimsy”) and type your text. Use Black as “Foreground” color.





3 - Select both Layers (“Shift” key) and head to the upper Menu to “Center” your text clicking the “Horizontal and Vertical Align Centers” buttons.





4 - Change the size of your text and re-center it if needed.



5 - Right-click on top of the Text’s Thumbnail and choose “New 3D Extrusion from Selected Layer”. Click “Yes” on the Pop-Up window.





6 - In the “3D” Panel select “Image” to show its contents and then select “Image Front Inflation Material”. Head to the “Properties Panel”, click on “Diffuse” and select a color in the “Color Picker” (we used a medium green).







7 - Now, select “Image Extrusion Material”. Head to the “Properties Panel”, click on “Diffuse” and select a color in the “Color Picker” (we used another shade of green).







8 - Select the “Background” Layer, right-click on top its Thumbnail and choose “Postcard”.





9 - Select both layers and click “Command/Control + Alt + E” to create a “Merged 3D Image”.



10 - With the Merged Image selected, go to 3D > Render 3D Layer and wait for the render process to finish (it may take some time depending on your document’s size and/or resolution).







11 - Your text should be similar to this.
