Photoshop actions are a great way to save time and increase productivity. You can find free Photoshop actions all over the web. They aren’t that difficult to create, because they just re-create the steps that you took to achieve a specific effect. Today, I’ve put together a free before you of 15 free Photoshop actions for text effects. You can preview these text effects below.
You’ll find a lot of different shadow effects. I created effects for specific levels inner shadows and dimensional effects. Leveraging layer styles and blend modes, I was able to create many different styles. Most of these Photoshop actions turn your text into smart objects. This makes it easy to go back and edit the effect, even after it has been completed.
Which one of these text effects are your favorite? I would have to say my favorite is the high-gloss metallic effect. A close second would have to be what I call a vented shadow effect. It looks like the shadows that you would see on a set of mini blinds. It really creates a unique effect. Some will like the Metal Casing Effect, too. It really just depends on what you are looking for. Also, be on the lookout for future actions. I will be creating more free Photoshop actions to streamline your workflow.
