Learn how to create striking, sophisticated type treatments in Photoshop. Explore a range of techniques that can help you efficiently illustrate your ideas with type in Photoshop.
- [Nigel] If you love Photoshop and you love typography, and let's face it who doesn't, you've doubtless experimented with creating type treatments in Photoshop, and you may have found that the course of true love does not always run smooth when it comes to getting the result that you want. I'm Nigel French, join me on LinkedIn Learning as I demonstrate a broad range of real world type effects, achieved with techniques that are both efficient and non-destructive.
We'll look at ways of combining layer blending, transparency, layer masking, and filters to create type treatments that are sophisticated and compelling, and that go beyond the obvious. All the while we'll keep sight of the fact that for all Photoshop's magic there's no substitute for working with a strong concept. Let's get started.

- Creating distressed text with a displacement map
- Creating effects such as smoky or fiery type
- Painting type with custom brushes
