Step 5 - Adding Some Shadow Youíre almost done! Pat yourself on the back. For our final step we are going to add a nice silvery/metallic stroke around the text. Make a new layer, name it "Outline"
* Blending Mode: Normal * Opacity: 100%
Ctrl + Click the text layer but have this layer selected (like last step), Select -> Modify -> Expand: 2px. Fill this with white.
Alright, almost done, now to add blending effects to this outline layer. Right click on the layer and go to blending effects, check "Drop Shadow" and "Gradient Overlay". For Drop Shadow, leave all settings default except these:
* Opacity: 15% * Distance: 2px * Size: 0px
That should leave a soft drop shadow. Now on to editing the gradient. Use these settings:
* Blend Mode: Normal * Opacity: 30%
Now, click on the thumbnail of the current gradient, a gradient editing window should pop up. Make your gradient look like screenshot.
