Photoshop PSD: Cool Blue Text

Today, I’ll show you how to create this “Cool Blue” text effect I put together in Photoshop. You can download the PSD file below! If you like this, feel free to share it along!


1. Start Photoshop and create a new document. I set the size to 1280px by 720px but you can make it bigger or smaller depending on the project your working on. Next I added some text with the following styles;

  • Font: Impact
  • Size: 274 pt
  • Color: #00a9e8

2. Then I’ve added the following layer styles to my text layer.

  • Drop Shadow
  • Inner Shadow
  • Inner Glow
  • Bevel and Emboss
  • Stroke
Click through the tabs below to see the settings I used for each layer style.

I’ve also added a nice little grey background for the text too. That’s it! You can download the PSD below and copy the layer styles from my text layer to your own!
