Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting opacity, part of Photoshop CS6: Text.
When I apply layer effects to my text, I tend to use relatively subtle settings. …And sometimes I can really take that subtlety to a new level by adjusting the …opacity of my text. Let's take a look at an example. …I'll go ahead choose the Type tool from the toolbox and then click into my image. …And I'll just type some text here. I'll go ahead and choose the Move tool …and move that text around. And of course I can adjust the various …settings for this text but I'm simply going to apply some layer effects. …I'll go ahead and with my Type layer active on the Layer's panel, I'll click …on the Layer Effects button and then I'll start off with the Bevel and Emboss for example.…
That will bring up the Layer Style dialog, and I can adjust the overall …settings for that Bevel and Emboss effect. …I might also add an Inner Shadow, for example, adjusting the distance and the …size of that effect. In this case, the font is relatively …lightweight, and so we're not seeing a really strong effect. …
