Okay I know no one requested it and I just learned how to do this my self but I hope you all like this tutorial! ^^ For this tutorial I am using Yuuki and Zero!(drools) xD Note:The letters look better on a dark picture and the text I used was Frakturika

1. First you open up an image(of course lol) Or If you want make a new picture and change the color to black. Open your text tool(font doesn't matter) and type whatever you want but make sure the color for the letters are gray then duplicate your text layer.


2.On the text copy open up the fx box and click on Bevel and Emboss Also Click Contour and satin. Change the technique to Chisel Hard, The depth to 400%, The direction to Down and the Size to 250(max), The Gloss Contour to ring double and check the anti-alias box like in the picture.


3.Next click the color overlay box and change it to Yellow.


4.Now go to your original text layer and go to stroke. Change the pixel size to 5 and the stroke color to yellow.


5.Now click on Bevel and Emboss(check the contour box while you're at it. In the Bevel and Emboss options change the style to Stroke emboss and the Technique to Chisel Hard. next change the depth to 201% and change the gloss contour to ring double.


6.Now go to the Outer Glow fx option change the glow to yellow(of course lol) The opacity to 50 and the size to 29.


7:And you're done your text should look like this. (But it should be gold I just changed mine to Silver lol) If you want you can put sparkles around the text to make it look better ^^ just use a lighter color(ex: If you used yellow, use a lighter yellow color)


Hope you this tutorial isn't hard ^^;; and I hope you like it! ^^ and here's an example of gold lettering I did:

Also you can basically do this for any color you choose! ^^ And sorry i took so long with editing this I was distracted
