Have you ever been wondering how to make a nice picture of a logo or to just make cool letters on Adobe Photoshop? If you have, you’ve found the right place. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use the tools in Photoshop to create a nice logo.
First of all, you’ll have to start off by making a new document.
Choose a name, the amount of pixels, and be sure to make the backround contents Transparent. After that we can move on to the next step.
Once you have your document open, you can choose a backround color. For this project, I chose to have a gradient backround. You choose the gradient tool showed by the red arrow. If the paint bucket is in that place, hold the paint bucket button then select gradient tool.
After that, go down to the two colors showed by the green arrow, and click on them. You can then change to the colors you want, and in this case I just chose white and teal. To use the gradient tool, you drag the line across your screen and it will create a gradient based on where you drag it. You can experiment with it if you want.
For Step 3, we are going to insert text. Select the text tool on the left tool bar, and then click the screen and type your text in. You can mess with the font and size in the text toolbar at the top of the screen. I used the font Franklyn Gothic Heavy.
Step 4 is where it starts to get complicated. You have to double click the text layer showed by the green arrow, and it will come up with the screen showed below.
You should click on the drop shadown, inner glow, gradient overlay, and stroke boxes.
Next you have to apply the gradient overlay. Select the two colors you want to use, and in this case i chose black and teal. Click on the gradient drop down menu, where there is the black and teal color in the picture below, and choose the first option. You should then get a gradient of the colors you chose. You can then use the circular angle wheel to change the direction of the gradient.
Next, go to the stroke option and change the color in the color box to what ever you want the outline to be of. In this case, I chose white. You can then alter how big the outline is on the size bar at the top of the options, and you can fit it to your liking.
Good Job! The project is finished. Press ok on the box and you can see the text, and below is my finished project.
Have fun using Photoshop!
